Tamarind in Tribecca

Goodness, it's been a busy week! I have a number of updates to share, but until I have time to write them up properly, here are a few fun pics from dinner last night.

My friend Patrick is in town from D.C. (A handful of very loyal readers may recall Patrick from this entry in London in 2007 -- which was, sadly, the last time we'd seen each other in person.)

He joined me at the 92Y in Tribeca for a reading, which I can't wait to write more about. After the event, we strolled down Hudson Street to Tamarind, which my friend Robin had recommended. It was fantastic! Patrick and I had read a few Yelp reviews on his iPhone while we waited for the show to begin, so we had great expectations, and it did not disappoint.

I was too hungry to take notes, so I had to cut and paste from the menu on the website just now, but I believe Patrick had this:

MORG KOLAHPURI Chicken with star anise, roasted garam masala, ginger, garlic and onions.

And I had this: MURGH BADAMI Chicken in a creamy almond sauce with saffron and raisins.

For our veggie: MASALA ALOO GOBI Potatoes and cauliflower simmered in an onion potato sauce with whole dry red chilies and cumin.

We shared, and all of it was so tasty -- with plenty of garlic nan to soak up the delicious sauces. Another highlight was my lychee daiquiri. (Can I try this at home?)

Not bad for a Wednesday night!

Oh,my nothing like this gourmet near me in Ohio...and congrats on spelling all those names. (Of course you could be off and I would never ever know.) Impressive adventures are commonplace in your world. Love the blog.
