Perhaps one of the best kept secret in Portland is the small Indian Restaurant offering buffet Monday through Friday. My husband and I have been going to this restaurant almost every Friday for the past few months and the quality of the food remains high. We hide the information that we are going to an indian restaurant from our 6 year old because usually if she knows we are going to indian restaurant, she would whine all the way, “I don’t want muddy food, I don’t want muddy food”. After the first bite, she was hooked. We heard no complaints from her because she was busy eating. She even asks for refills of the mango dessert but my husband have to go back to work and there were other customers waiting for our table, so we left. However, I did manage to snap a few photos before leaving.
There are two kinds of rice. Today’s special rice was biryani chicken rice, with cinnamon stick, star anise, turmeric powder and other spices. The last time we were there was lamb rice. If it were not a buffet, I could just eat this delicious rice by itself.
The dish that is closest to the camera is dessert. It has cardomom spice, indian rice sticks, raisins and almond nuts, that is slow cooked in sweet milk.
Even my 20 month old enjoyed the tandoori chicken.
