All Things Indian

Went out with a few colleagues for lunch today. They wanted to try out one of our vendor's restaurant (reading between the lines: a free lunch!). I was a bit reluctant to go at first because 1) I have shitloads of paperwork to do 2) It was an Indian restaurant...and I don't do Indian food. CORRECTION: I don't do mamak food. Like seriously, how can you eat all that thick curry and stuff? Just looking at it gives me diarrhea.

Anyway, in the end I went since apparently it wasn't a Mamak restaurant but a northern Indian restaurant. Got difference, meh? I guess you got to try it to know.

The place wasn't that far from our office; behind the Bangsar Victoria Station outlet. It was kind of small and cozy. The owners were nice and apparently were waiting for our arrival with anticipation.

We didn't know what to order (like the menu was all Indian food names), so the owners ordered for us. What I can tell you, the nan bread was heavenly. I must have eaten at least 6 slices of those; so soft and tasty. The other items they ordered were also surprisingly good, especially the grilled prawns. The dessert was too sweet for my taste though but it was interesting to try.

We talked throughout the meal and somehow I got talking about En. Rashid's supposedly romantic idea to go see the Taj Mahal for our anniversary. Turns out the vendor also has a hotel in Agra...or maybe it was his friend who had a hotel. Anyhow, he got talking about the places I should see if I ever went to India and told me to let him know when I was going. Muahahaha...maybe next year but it was a nice gesture. Maybe next time I can get a sponsored holiday in India instead of just lunch...:D.
