Food for Thought - Dallas (Richardson)

I just found this site. I have to tell you about Food for Thought. The best food I have eaten in my entire life. The Morning Snooze has a review of it below:

It's in Richardson a few miles west of Central on Campbell Road, north of Dallas, in the Telecom Corridor. Normally, I stay as far away from that area as I possibly can (suburbia!) but I'll make an exception for FFT.

It's an Indian vegetarian place with a huge buffet. I have eaten everything they make multiple times. I discovered this place in September and have probably eaten there at least 30 times. Indian food is my favorite of all and they make all the regional dishes that you never can get at the mainstream Indian places (bese bele, green bean curry, idli sambar, ravi uppma, pongal, the list goes on and on). My favorite thing there is a cauliflower dish made very lightly battered and with a crispy coating and then in a sauce of chile, honey and sesame. It's so delicious that I've made a fool of myself eating gigantic amounts of it in one sitting. There are three soups every day, a large salad/prepared salad (chat)/raw vegetable buffet too. The pappadum is like butterfly wings and the paratha . . . I ate there yesterday and am going back today!

The people who own and run FFT are incredibly friendly and charming and the place is spotlessly clean.

I can't recommend this restaurant highly enough. As I said, it's in that Telecom Corridor area which has been very hard hit by layoffs and I hope that doesn't cause FFT to go under. I certainly do my part to support it. If you like Indian food or are adventurous, try it. You won't regret it.
