The always friendly staff took my lunch order of the veg curry of the day, but when I asked for chapati (which they do brilliantly there) the waiter suggested I choose from the a la cart menu. He could tell that I was after vegetarian options, and kindly offered to make anything from their full menu. I took him up on his suggestion of Aloo Gobi, which I ordered extra hot with chapati.
My order took a bit longer than the lunch menu options, but it was so worth the short wait I could have sat there all day for what I got: hot and tender potatoes and cauliflower bathed blissfully in thick and spicy gravy. Savoring every scoop, I went at it with the hot and fresh chapati with little care for the risk of burning my mouth as I greedily wolfed it down. It's always a plus when you can get the chef to make something fresh off the dinner menu at lunch time, and this was an absolutely winning take on the classic Indian veggie dish.
Not only did I not miss meat, I was glad of its absence. If indeed I am going full veg (or perhaps pescatarian), I can count on the myriad options provided by Indian food to make the transition not only easy, but indeed joyous.
