North Indian Cuisine

I took pictures of these pretty pink daises when we went to Berkeley today. It was a beautiful sight to behold.

Posing with daisies while waiting for our friend, Darrell.

We had lunch at India Palace Restaurant along University Avenue. It's one of our favorite restaurant. The place has a relaxing air, its walls adorned with bold and colorful paintings depicting village life in India. I would wholeheartedly recommend it to those who love Indian food and living in the east bay.

That's my plate. Can you tell I was very hungry? (hehehesengihnampakgigi) Their tandoori chicken is moist and delicious. Their lamb curry is so tender and juicy too. Talking about it makes me want to go back right this minute. lapar

There's a huge Lord Ganesh at the entrance. It's about 4 feet in height. He is widely revered as the Remover of Obstacles in India. He is also believed to bring prosperity in homes and businesses.

  8. Do they serve dosas? If they they do I'm sure I've eaten there a few times. Unless I'm thinking of another place on University...

    Either way, I'm incredibly hungry and all I've had for dinner was salt & vinegar potato chips and a glass of Merlot.

  9. Ahhh, you make me miss the Bay area.

  10. i like the daisies! now lang ako nakakita ng purplish daisies. :)

    i'm not a big fan of indian food, maybe because some are just too spicey for my taste. but those photos really makes me want to try it again. :) Here in manila, i eat this cuisine in Bollywood in greenbelt. i like the ambiance and the music.

    I love Indian food, but MG doesn't like it so I never make it. However, I used to go to this place in Indianapolis that made Tandoori to die for! They always served it with saffron and raisin rice. Yummy.

  14. @ A: I think they do. I always go for the Naan though. Maybe it's the same place you've been to! :)
