Daily Diary: I Came. I Saw. I Chickened Out

20111106-121149.jpg

Last night I went out with about 20 friends. My town puts together these “Couples’ Night Out” activities and we all headed to an Indian restaurant. The price tag? $70 a head which is a lot for me considering I hardly drink… EVER.

But anyway, it was a guaranteed good time – so Bill and I went.

We had a huge table – about 10 or so couples – and the food just kept coming out. One saucy dish after another. I wanted to try it all. Really I did. I’m just not that adventurous when it comes to food.

So, what did I end up eating for $70 a plate?

White rice and Naan bread. How pathetic!!! All my friends were CHOWING down and I was sitting there nibbling on some basmati. I don’t know what happened! Today, I am totally regretting it.

Are you a lover of Indian food? What are your favorite dishes?!! This way I know what to order next time around.

  1. Such a fun night!

  2. Indian food is great, partly because there are tons of vegetarian dishes. My personal favourite is samosa, a fried pastry stuffed with spicy potatoes, peas and other stuff.

  3. I absolutely love Indian food. Chicken tikka masala is fantatsic. I, also, can’t get enough of the naan and raita.

    Quit bitching – A good time was had by all!

    • listen, just because you shaved and look 20 years younger doesn’t give you the right to curse at me BUD. 🙂

  5. Which restuarant did you go to?

    Chicken Tikka Masala is an awesome dish. Spices can be adjusted for you.
    Palak Paneer is good also.
    Chicken Sagwala.
    An uber safe dish is Chicken Biryani.
    Indian food is awesome just give it a chance. Since you missed out on a smorgasboard of dishes, a economical route is to try the lunch buffet on the weekends. There’s a hidden restuarant behind Roosevelt Field Mall, right off of Stewart Ave called Akbar’s and they have the buffet on Sat & Sun and the food is really good.

  6. Oh WoW, Mint lookes awesome. I thinkg Akbar will look like a hole in the wall joint compared to Mint. I will have to put Mint on my list of restuarants to try.

  7. Oh no! I used to claim I didn’t like Indian food, but that was only because I hadn’t tried it and didn’t know where to start – now I love it. Butter chicken is a good starter dish (tomato-y and not spicy), as is chicken korma (creamy, coconutty and also not spicy). I also agree with the chicken biryani suggestion. Hope you can try some of those options soon, they really are delicious and not scary!
