Meat Indian Food Is My New Hero

This entry was posted in Culture on by .

That’s right–I have a new hero. I’m sorry, Uncle Phil from The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, you’re going to have to move over. Meat Indian food has replaced you.

For months, I’d heard about a new kosher restaurant in New York that serves meat Indian food. There are plenty of vegetarian kosher Indian restaurants in the city–and I eat at them fairly often. But this is a whole other beast. This is something I’d never tasted before.

Last week, I finally had the opportunity to go to Dakshin, and I gotta tell ya, this place was awesome. Some of the time, when you go to kosher restaurants, the food can be sub-par because some owners feel like their clientele will come regardless.

But as a guy who knows his Indian spices, this place definitely did not disappoint. This was for real Indian food. Lamb samosas? You betcha. Chicken Tikka Masala? Yes please. Next time I’m there, and you better believe there will be a next time, I’m going to try the Tandoori Chicken. Because it’s Tandoori Chicken! That stuff looks SO good! And I’ve never been able to eat it before! I can’t handle not using exclamation points! The idea of tandoori chicken in my mouth makes me that excited!

Okay, enough free advertising for this awesome restaurant that anyone in the greater New York area should go too. Let’s watch some classic Fresh Prince.

    As the moderator of all comments on this blog, it was pretty funny to approve a comment that tears into me so harshly. Good thing I have strong skin.

    Two quick points that I think should be addressed though. Firstly, find me a 12 year old who has the palate to truly appreciate good Indian food, and he can write for our blog any time he wants.

    Secondly, a 12 year old would have been born in either 1998 or 1999. The Fresh Prince of Bel Air went off the air in 1996. So I’d also be impressed by a 12 year old with a vast knowledge of mid 90s television. Again, he would be invited to write for this blog any time.
