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!

An Indian feast for two!

The other weekend, my boyfriend and I went to one of the best Indian restaurants on the island- CafĂ© Maharani. It’s been a while since we last went there. We went there for our second date and I introduced my boyfriend to Indian food. He enjoyed it (yay!). The restaurant is always crowded and parking is sparse. We were fortunate to find parking and get a table right away.

We ordered the combination dinner special for two, which was a great deal! This is what we chose to grind!

Vegetarian samosas- mmmm! Looks like big won tons, huh?

Our entrée: lamb masala (similar to a lamb stew or curry) and palak paneer (homemade cheese with a creamy spinach sauce), with saffron rice. OMG! It was so good! The yogurt and sweet/sour sauces were for the samosas.

Stuffed cheese-garlic naan. Mouth watering!!!

I love Indian food! I could eat it daily! I understand that the spices are healthy.

I found an article explaining the health benefits of Indian spices: http://healthyeating.sfgate.com/benefits-indian-spices-7060.html
