Indian food has always been intriguing to me. The aromatic spices, rich flavors, and vibrant colors are all super appealing to me.
I once made Jenna’s chana masala (which was awesome), but I still longed to try the plethora of other foods Indian fare has to offer.
Enter Mint Indian Bistro and a visiting friend. We went to lunch at this small and quaint bistro and decided to go with their lunch buffet. They had a spread of about 15-20 different items including soups and desserts. They also had plenty of fresh fruit, sauces, and chutneys. The menu included not just Indian dishes, but Nepalese, Tibetan, and Himalayan as well.

“Fluffy milk-based pastries, brown on the outside, and awesome on the inside, just like the Himalayan folk.”
🙂 So cheesy, right? That little brown ball was basically a donut hole soaked (and I mean soaked to the core) in sugary syrup. Both of these dessert items were way too sweet for me. That says a lot coming from a girl who loves all things sweet. When you bit the donut, syrup came gushing out into your mouth. Totally not appealing.
On a better note, I purchased a Groupon for food at India Palace, which has the stamp of approval from my friend who was actually born and raised in the heart of India. I’m excited to try it!
