Today I went out to lunch. I have no idea what I ordered, other then the blanket statement of, "The Non-Vegetarian Special" please. The gentleman behind the counter was patient, and definitely customer service focused, but despite his attempts to describe the possible food combinations I could choose, I ended up saying, "Surprise me, you pick!". Semi new to Indian cuisine, I still have no idea what most menu items are, but set ignorance and fear aside to try the odd colored items anyway.
I ended up with way too many food items to fit on my shared dining table and quickly realized the only thing recognizable was my can of Coke. I can only describe the courses offered as a salad (which I loved!), naan, some type of rice, a lentil dish which I devoured, a chicken item, coconut curry tofu, something green, and a pepper. Most items were excellent, with just one or two things that I don't think would find their way back to my plate for second helpings, but seeing as I don't know what they were called, maybe they will!
