Its been 19 days since I came to Seattle and I have to talk about the Indian food which I ate. We, Indians from Ireland, know how it is to especially drool/crave for South Indian Foods like Idlis, dosa, Bajji, Vada and the North Indian food like chaat. We don’t have any of these 😦 . But it is very common in USA which is fantastic 😀 .
I have been eating lot of Indian Food here 😀 . I did eat lot of Dosa, Idli, Potato Vada and the best thing is (I just couldn’t leave this out) Mushroom Manchurian Indian Style 😀 . I was just drooling while reading the menu in the restaurent. We found a bakery/small restaurent where they sell Indian Sweets (can you believe it), Typical Indian Cakes, Chaat and Indo-Chinese foods. I was over the moon when we found this 😀 . I also had a fantastic Elaichi Chaai and the bakery I am talking about is called Mayuri in Bellevue.
After reading all this, you can certainly believe that I have put on weight in just 2 weeks 😀 . I also tried the Greek food which i loved. Even though we have lots of options in choosing different cuisines, I don’t know why we keep coming to the Indian cuisine. We did have different kinds of dosa.
Other thing which I want to talk about is the Indian Groceries. I visited at least 2 store and I found lot of stuffs which I would love to take to Dublin. They have ready made Dosa batter, adai batter and idli batter along with frozen sambar and chutney 😀 and Of course I bought it. I was like a greedy pig for the first week after seeing all these food 🙂 .
I also found a DVD rental store for Indian movies next to the bakery which was awesome. They rent a movie for $ 2 for 4 days 🙂 . They were also advertising for the new releases in theater. At present, the 2 Indian movies which are running here is Love Aaj Kal and Magadheera which is a telugu movie.
Overall my stomach is very happy to be here 😆 and hopefully I don’t put too much weight.
