We decided to try the Taste of the Himalayas, a restaurant that we’d read about on Yelp. It was such a pleasant change from the heaviness of some of our meals. I had the vegetable tandoori, which was flavorful and mild – it liked the exotic spiciness of some Indian foods that might have upset the delicate balance I’d reached with my stomach. My husband had the paneer delicacy, which was saag paneer. He was offered a choice of spiciness: mild, medium, or hot, and he chose medium. It was a bit too spicy for me, but it was definitely delicious. Saag paneer is always a favorite of ours. The rice and naan that accompanied this were also excellent. The rice was firm, not sticky, and the naan was rich and flavorful. For dessert, we had gulab jamuns in honor of Dave from the Flight of the Conchords. These were off the chain – they were beautifully spiced, and the sweet, honey-flavored syrup was great. I’d only had gulab jamuns with a rose flavor, so the honey flavor was an interesting but delicious change.
