The Husband is obsessed with Indian food and claims that the best kind is found in Britain (of course, he’s never actually been to India). 🙂
Tonight we went to dinner at a highly recommended Indian restaurant called Raj Poot.
I was a little nervous about the food. I typically prefer Thai to Indian (I thought I didn’t like curry). However, the place had a lot of ambiance and many, many awards on the wall, which set me at ease!
I let the Husband do the ordering. He requested the Raj Poot vegetables: eggplant, bindi, new potatoes, chick peas, and selected spices cooked in a thick sauce:
As well as the Lobra Korma: cauliflower, mushroom, green peas, and potatoes simmered in sauce of browned onion, ground spices and coconut powder
We split those two dishes along with a serving of Pulao rice.
On the side, we had Peshwari Nan, which is leaved bread stuffed with nuts and raisin. I could’ve made an entire meal out of this bread!
I was BLOWN AWAY by Raj Poot! I really did not think I liked Indian food, but the Lobra Korma was especially amazing.
As I typically do when eating ethnic food, I made sure to order the nation’s beer. I had a Cobra, which was delicious (I do not like Kingfisher beer – another Indian beer – at all, just an FYI for you beer drinkers out there):
SO satisfying… And despite all the food I consumed, it didn’t weigh me down or make me feel overfull (although I’m sure I technically was!).
We stopped off at a few British pubs afterwards. The Husband was thirsty! I decided to practice some beer moderation and got the 1/2 pint on the right.
The pub itself was super tiny and cute. I would totally hang out at this joint if I lived in Bath (it was called The Green Street Tree, I think).
Tomorrow, we have a BIG DAY PLANNED!
- Wake up and run.
- Take train to Manchester.
- Check into our new hotel (we’re only staying one night).
- Go to the Manchester United Football game!!! We have 4th row seats!
VERY excited about going a real live football game.
Have you ever had Indian food? Do you like it? What other ethnic foods do you like?
