Jeff was in town and we went out to eat Indian food on the 6th Street strip. Went to Malai Marke –a more modern Indian restaurant among all the Indian restaurant there. Prices are higher. No BYOB or free complimentary wine. But pretty dang good food. The quality seems better.
The Fried Okra (Kukuri Bindi) was good. It was like fried shredded bits of stuff that’s leftover from frying stuff that you’d pick at.
The least impressive was the Mulligatawny soup. It was weird, because Jeff asked a few times if it was Mulligatawny. It didn’t look like what any of us thought Mulligatawny was. It was kind of important to find out what it was, since he’s vegan. I tried it. It had lentils and a lot of flour. I think it might have been vegan. But still, we weren’t positive it was really Mulligatawny. We were thinking it was going to be more like a brown thin vegetable soup, instead of creamy yellow soup without vegetables. But after Google Image searching, it’s possible that it was Mulligatawny.
The other entrees like Lamb Curry and Saag Paneer were really good. I ate too much and really felt the pain. I could have stopped well sooner. I don’t know what it is with good food that you feel like you should stuff your face.
