Spicy mouth!

Happy Sunday! Hope you all had a nice weekend.

Last week, my new friends/colleagues and I dined at Himalayan Kitchen in Kaimuki. I was stoked! Indian food makes me super excited, every time! Not only is it health for ya, it’s so good! I was craving for lamb and ordered the lamb madras at medium spice. I usually will order a masala or vindaloo curry sauce, but wanted to try something different. Madras is made with tomatoes and coconut milk. Boy, was it hot for medium (I’m usually able to handle that level of heat). It was so spicy that I couldn’t finish my meal. Yikes! I guess the heat can make you full faster. Good idea if you want to lose weight, huh? 😉 Haha! Nonetheless, the dish was excellent! I enjoyed it very much. I ended up finishing my curry when I returned home. By then, I was used to the level of spiciness, it didn’t seem hot anymore. Haha!

Holy moly! Look at this piece of plain naan!! The shape looks like a huge turkey leg! Naan is a must-order to pair with the curry. Oh, and rice, too. Basmati rice is the bomb!

They have a variety of different naans, which is a type of Indian bread. Can’t go wrong with the naan. I do love the cheese and garlic naans, too.

There’s Indian food at Shirokiya!

I am so excited! Finally! Indian food at Ala Moana Shopping Center!!! Bombay Grill is located at Shirokiya Japan Village Walk’s extensive food court. I love the diversity there! So many different ethnic foods to choose from!

This is the chicken biryani rice. One of my faves! It was so good, especially with the yogurt raita sauce. Perfect pairing!

I love yogurt with certain meals- Greek, Indian, and with most of my meats (i.e., lamb, steak, pork chops, and even chicken). Yummy!

I’m glad to know there’s another Indian joint on the island, and at the mall- how convenient!
