Bombay Chaat and Cafe was recommended by my South Asian collegues at work. A hole in the wall situated in a run down strip mall, this minimally converted ice cream and java joint has been serving lunches
for about seven months. For $4.50, you get what they are serving for the day so the line up, although limited, is fresh and not overcrowded with too many limp items. Today is Chicken
tikka with potatoes and peas and delicious basmati and almond sliver rice combo with a side of brownish daal.
A huge, lightly
oiled piece of naan is part of the
package. We also ordered the giant vegetable gease free samosa as an appetizer and it was really lovely with a crumbly sweet wrapper and moist not overcooked veges inside.
If you prefer they will make you a sandwich
or dole out a scoop of ice cream. This, folks,is real home cooking.
