Ghoroa update

JFores | Apr 10, 2008 06:42 PM

As I sit here eating my keski mas, aloo bhorta, dal, rice, and mini salad (which cost me 5 dollars WITH A TEA) I felt the need to write this. Ghoroa is out of the way for many, the food is not exactly home cooking quality, and the food is steam tabled (aside from tandoor items), but that does not detract from what Ghoroa is. The name, which roughly translates to home, fittingly describes a restaurant in which I learned to eat with my hand, learned about Bengali food, and first began considering how I can cook it. Alright, I'll get to the point. Tell me another place in the US or London where you can get a meal that is better than Spicy Mina's on all but her best days for 5 dollars. Not only that, but tell me a restaurant where the employees are going to refer to you as brother, ask how you've been, and ask where you friend is after not having gone there for 3 months.

Did I mention that I love their chicken pulao?
