Stopped in for dinner last night - apparently a quiet night -

Overall, the food was decent - very fresh -

$.99 order of papadan (like a rice-based tortilla shell but very thin) with a tomato-y sauce and a jalapeno-cilantro sauce for dipping - much preferred the cilantro - good bite.

For me the standout was the gawanga soup, which contained egg, tomato, ginger and cilantro flavors - had a really outstanding flavor - would definitely order this again.

CH had spinach soup that tasted like liquid spinach - my taste of it was that it was ok -

For entree got the shago meta chumma, which was potatoes and cauliflower cooked with vinegar, tomato, scallion, onion, yogurt and turmeric. Was tasty, but sort of bland - wished it had a bit more kick (or vinegary-turmericy sourness).

Chicken Tsel had a nice flavor to it. Nice fresh veggies.

I liked the overall, laid-back vibe to the place - Have had their ground beef entrees before, and will probably stick to those for the next times.
