S wasn’t feeling that well today was craving some hearty Indian food, so off we went! We checked out Laadla, a place that we have seen many times driving by, but never had the chance to stop in.
We don’t dine on Indian food that often, but that doesn’t mean I don’t LOVE IT. Indian food reminds me of my days traveling in Asia, Thailand particularly. I hope one day to make it to India, and have some of their authentic cuisine. But, for now, this will have to do:
I should have taken a picture of the filling, but I’m still an amateur at this, so forgive me. I thought they were strangely shaped, but I know better than judging a book by it’s cover, or in this case, a samosa by it’s shape. Unfortunately, these were a little on the bland side. The filling was almost all potato, with not much flavor and a few peas.
They were served with this:
The hot sauce definitely added some flavor to the samosas, but not enough to make them worth ordering again.
Our main course consisted of the following:
We ordered the butter chicken 3/4 for spiciness but it wasn’t that spicy! The flavor was good but I would have preferred it a little bit spicier. Next time I will go for the 4/4 on the spice scale. This butter chicken was really creamy, just the way I like it!
We ordered the chicken 3/4 as well, and it came out to be quite spicy. It was pretty yummy, you could taste the charcoal goodness in the chicken. The dish also had green peppers and onions in the sauce.
S and I always enjoy this dish. I’ll admit that the picture doesn’t make it look that appetizing, but trust me, it never fails. It’s a favorite of mine and S’s.
No Indian meal of mine is complete without naan! How else am I supposed to soak up those delicious sauces?!
Total Damage: $49.38 (including tax)
Personal Rating: 2.75 out of 5 (Not the best but good)
$50 is pretty reasonably for all the food we got. I always find that the portions seem so small at Indian restaurants, but once you start eating, the dish seems never ending! Overall, it’s was pretty good. We left satiated and full. It wasn’t the best Indian food I have ever had, but it was good, and I wouldn’t be opposed to going back again. There are plenty other dishes on the menu we didn’t try!
