(We would like to thank pepe (a reader of this blog) for suggesting this place and making this post possible. Thank you very much pepe! This is a great find! PLEASE NOTE THAT THE INDIAN RESTAURANT HAS TRANSFERRED LOCATIONS BUT IS STILL LOCATED ON THE SAME STREET.)
Are you hungry for curry? Can’t get enough of Slumdog Millonaire or bollywood films? Now you can get the best of each experience at Indian Restaurant!
Indian Restaurant is a hole in the wall carinderia serving Indian food. It is located near the Brgy Villamonte Baranggay hall. (Just ask the locals for “ang carinderia kung diin damo bumbay”. 😀 LOL!!
If you are the fussy type or do not like curry/spicy food this place will probably not appeal to you. If you have an adventurous spirit, you’ll feel at home! The tiny TV and speakers blast Bhangra and Bollywood pop songs and you’ll dine with Indians coming from their 5-6 expeditions.
Almost everything in this place is vegetarian since the owner is Hindu. The must try food in the place is their Samosas which are like Empanadas except that they are filled with a mixture of potatoes green peas and spices. It’s a bit spicy.
We tried a samosa then we liked it so much we bought the entire tray to take home! the samosa comes with a sweet-sour tamarind sauce (seen in the background of this picture) that gives it an extra kick and sourness. The combination is divine!
The prices are so cheap too! We ordered everything on the menu just to try a bit.
We also had two curries, chicken curry and a strange curry with chunks of veggiemeat.
Now after the substantial meal we had another treat in store for us. Indian sweets for dessert. These are very sweet, very different confections.
The most unusual dessert (not pictured here) were some black syrup covered balls with what appeared to be custard inside. It tasted like fish but it was sweet. Fish custard!!! :edit: Someone told me that what we had was Gulab Jamun
Once again, thank you to our reader pepe who suggested this wonderful resto. It is awesome.
(UPDATE: Went back to the Indian restaurant for a samosa and ended up buying the whole tray (again!) Noticed a few things too.
Here’s their menu!! I want to try their pakora and buttered chicken next time.
Finally got a shot of the fish-tasting custard. The sweets this time were freshly made so it was very good!
Due to the popularity of this post, the Indian restaurant has moved to a better location and upgraded its facilities. They really leveled up!
