I'm getting into Shershah ...

I love Indian food, for many years it was my absolute favorite cuisine.

East India Grill (under the original management) was my favorite. I used to eat there three times a week. I had birthday parties there. But I don't go there anymore.

Switched to Chandni during my vegan days. Still like it, but it's not convenient.

Went to Akbar for years -- like it -- but decided it was too expensive. Sort of lost my taste for it.

So, I've gone without for a while.

One thing about Indian food I don't like is the presentation in some places. It can be sort of "piles of food" style. I really liked the presentation at EIG and at Akbar, they made the food look good.

Now, I'm getting into Shershah in the Marina. I've been stuck on a couple of dishes and need to branch out.

I've been getting a Sag (something with spinach, usually chicken) and a vindaloo (lamb or chicken) with some naan and maybe some vegetable pakoras.

I order my food hot. First time, it wasn't hot enough and I mentioned it and they said I need to tell them how hot, because a lot of Americans say hot and then the food is too hot. So, this time I said really hot, not American hot and I had a great burn.

I need to go there for the lunch buffet, which sort of defeats the presentation notion but it's cheaper and I can try different things. Nice people in there, too.
