Had lunch with the PortlandFood.org Curry Club today at Curry Leaf.
Wow! Curry Leaf was very good. Everything was good to very good. The flavors were fresh and intense but balanced.
I really liked the malabar chilli chicken and the cabbage-mustard seed dishes. The former was savory, only moderately spicy, with tender chicken and nice cinnamon and other spice fragrances. The latter was buttery and tangy.
But the other dishes -- that soup, that tomatoey lentil curry, the tandoori chicken -- were all good, too, just not my preference in comparison to the others.
btw, two Sundays a month they do a special Southern Indian vegetarian dinner.
