i've been a lurker to these boards and have benefitted greatly from these boards and the weekly chownews that i receive every week
so i just wanted to report on the new Indian restaurant on the corner of 2nd & Folsom, it used to be a burger place, i forget the name already but it starts with an M, and today was the grand opening
let me just start by saying that i don't know much about Indian food, and in fact, i've never really liked Indian food, but i do like eating at wazwah (the Indian place at Rincon and Emeryville Public Market), so i really may not be an expert, but i do know what good food is
so, i decided to be a chowpup and try out a new place, i got the following order to go:
i ordered kalkutta prawns appetizer, chicken tikka masala, and a fish curry
the prawns were deep fried with some red batter and they were crisp, and juicy and excellent
the entrees came with this yellow rice and the sauces on both entrees were flavorful and delicious
i especially liked the fish curry as it had this kick to it, the chicken tikka was also excellent, with nice big pieces of meat and flavorful sauce, both entrees had a lot of meat and plenty of good sauce
oh yeah, i also ordered some Indian bread (third one down from the bread section on the menu) it was a naan bread with some type of filling, it was good also
all in all, a good meal i am going to go back again to try their other things, they didn't have a take=out menu with them today otherwise i would have been more descriptive
i'm gonna get the lamb next time...
one question, is there anyway to get the back issues of chownews that i missed?
