Pippali - Great weekday dinner

thegforceny | Aug 20, 201812:08 PM     6

Last Tuesday I was craving Indian and stopped in. Pretty crowded, including one large group of couples in the middle. Several tables had a sole Indian inhabitant guiding their friends through the menu. Welcomed warmly by the staff and owner/manager (?).

Felt like a martini and they made me a great Tito's vodka martini. I love goat and always order it when I see it, but was also in the mood for heat. Asked about the lamb vindaloo vs. the Punjabi goat on the menu. Waiter told me it was saucy and highly flavored.

Started with DAHI PAPDI CHAAT which was really good - nice crunch to the crackers. Then that goat - I loved it. Not as spicy as a vindaloo but definitely flavorful, rich, lots of sauce. Mixed pickles (achar) were fresh (didn't seem from a jar, but I don't really know). Well-prepared rice and delicious naan. With tax and tip, it came to $70 for one drink, app, entree, pickle and naan. Warm, welcoming, attentive staff. Gave me WiFi password.

My new Curry Hill favorite.

PS Full vegetarian menu alongside meat items.
