Taste of India - Amherst, NY - Visit
In the meantime...for today's post...a visit to A Taste of India in the Buffalo, NY, area a little over a week ago.
My husband and I took a day trip to a few places in the Buffalo area in the Abarth. This is where we had lunch. They have a HUGE menu and a nice vegetarian section. I thought it was neat that you could 'name your heat level'. I decided to choose Medium but next time I will be going with the Hot. What did I have? Well...off their vegetarian menu I chose the Chana Saag. Curried Spinach with Chickpeas. It came with Rice and in their white rice they added simple chunks of carrot for color. I really enjoyed it.
Along with my meal I had a large glass of straight-up Mango Juice. Dale is somewhat hooked on Mango Lassi Drinks now. I am going to start making them at home for him.
Because he's FAR FROM Vegetarian he chose one of the platters because he wanted to try a bunch of different things that they offered. I believe there was Tandoori Chicken and Shrimp, Chicken Tikka, Boti Kebab, Naan, Sauteed Onions and Peppers, Beef Curry, and he had some of the white rice of mine because there was a huge plate of it and I thought he would enjoy it. The location was on Sheridan Drive in Amherst but many people just say "Buffalo". It's always FUN visiting the area I grew up and I think we will be doing it more often with the small cars and the Fiat Club. Speaking of which - we hope the weather holds for this Saturday because it is the first time we hope to meet up with them. We are planning on visiting the Zippo Factory and Museum in Bradford, PA with a few other stops along the way. More on that next week, tho!
