craving: indian.

this past sunday we went out for indian to celebrate h's birthday. it was his pick and he insisted on traveling allll the way to the north side of the city - to devon avenue, for our meal. if you live in chicago you know that the devon area is full of authentic indian restaurants, shops and grocery stores. 

i have a love, hate relationship with indian food... i love it. it hates me. regardless, i always go back for more and i typically order the same thing (it's too good not to!) veggie samosas, chicken tikka masala and plenty of naan bread... i think it's fair to say that this is a typical starter meal for someone who is trying to venture into indian cuisine. the next time i have indian food i'd like to make it myself!


have you tried indian food? what's your favorite dish?

  2. I looove Indian food - although I also had a love-hate relationship with it while I was in India, ha!

    In South Africa they have something called Durban curry (Durban is a city in South Africa with a large Indian population) - it is amazing!

  13. I LOVE Indian food and Devon Ave is the perfect place to go for it! I haven't found that equivalent in SF yet but we did find a good Indian place that delivers in our area. Chicken tikka masala, saag paneer, naan ... now I want Indian for lunch!

  14. There's a reason samosas, tikka masala and naan are so popular–they're so delicious! We also love vindaloos for a little kick, kormas for serious newbies, and just got into dosas–YUM!
