New Indian restaurant, Ashoka Palace, to open in Center City in March, 2008

As reported in the Philadelphia Inquirer last week, Ashoka Palace, specializing in northern Indian cuisine, will open sometime in March, 2008, at 38 S. 19th St. The former occupant was Bootsie's.

This information was given by a Kinder Jit Singh, who used to cook at Taj Mahal and Passage to India, also in Center City, Philadelphia.

If they could find such a location in Center City, I wonder why Minar Palace couldn't have done so, too. Are the owners of MP still looking or have they moved out of the area?

The only place I have found whose saag paneer comes somewhat close to their version is Chinnar in Wayne, but even their version is a very tame version of what MP did.
