My husband came home one Friday night saying that we needed to eat at Bollywood theater that night. I’m always up for a food adventure-especially when multiple coworkers rave about it and he got to see the delicious takeout from lunch!
The restaurant is a funky warehouse style building with high ceilings and lots of tables.
It was reasonably priced and allowed for a delightful mix and match of a variety of dishes and flavors.
We ordered the following:
Dahi Papri Chaat: Housemade crackers topped with chickpeas, potatoes, yogurt, cilantro and tamarind chutney.
Samosa Cholle: Two savory pastries filled with spiced potatoes, onions, ginger and peas. Topped with chickpea chole and green chutney.
Chicken Curry: aromatic and creamy curry. Served with saffron rice.
Dal: lentils simmered with spices.
It’s like the tapas of Indian street food!
I tend to like curries, but I was surprised that the simplicity and flavor of the chaat and the samosa were my favorites. At the same time, each plate provided a nice mix of acidity and creaminess and heat and coolness. It was delightful tasting the trio of chutneys with the pappadums.
