Indian on 6th St.

I don't want to belabor a point, but since Mina has moved back to Queens, I was very curious how Angon had been faring. My mom and sister came into town for the Thanksgiving weekend and they requested Indian and remembered the great, but pricey, meal they had at Angon. I wanted to go back as well and off we went on Saturday night. Milton was a gracious host and I don't believe that I'd seen the place that busy since it first opened. The halim was sublime, as usual, but Milton brought out a samosa chat that was better than what I'd had at the place or Mina's original restaurant before. My mom and sis were impressed that they were offered a choice of spicy pepper and plain pappadum at the beginning of the meal but Angon's unique palak paneer is still not exactly to my tastes. We also shared a simple tandoor chicken dish which was the best I've had in years and an almost too spicy lamb vindaloo which nevertheless had us all salivating for more. My verdict? Angon is still the best food, if not the best value on Curry Lane. Southeast Asian foodies will be in for quite a sticker shock compared to those chili-pepper outfits, but at least they'll leave with their tummies full and memories of some of the best Indian food they'll have ever eaten.
