Ethnic food for us!
We really like to try new restaurants, and if they are cool small locally owned joints they get bonus points in our book. Last week we tried two new places that i thought worthy to share and spread the word about. I’m also a fan of groupon and both of these places we tried out because we had groupons for them.
1. Saffron Indian We really like indian food- chicken korma might be one of my all time favorite meals, and add some freshly baked Naan- yum! So when the Saffrom groupon came up i nabbed it not only because it was an indian restaurant but it’s less than a few miles from our house. We frequent Swagat which is in zona rosa, and its good, but i was willing to give another local indian place a shot. Well last night when i got home from TOFW i was really not in the mood to cook so i called them to see if i could use my groupon on a to go order and they said yes. I placed my order and drove over to pick it up after stopping at a red box. Dinner and a movie at home for us! Now i’m not gonna like i was actually nervous to eat my order because when i picked it up there was only 2 people dining in at 7:45 on a Saturday night. only 2 people?! it’s a small restaurant in kind of an awkward location and it is new, so i was thinking that either they are serving some form of food poisoning and i would be up all night puking my guts out or they just were struggling to get their footing as a new place. Hoping with all that i might that it was the latter i gave a decent tip because in all honestly i felt really bad they didn’t have more patrons and went home to eat. Well i am very very happy to report that their food is SO good. Matt and i both felt that it was as good if not better than swagat and we would happily eat there again. The inside of the restaurant definitely leaves a lot to be desired, but the prices are less than swagat and lets be honest, they need your business, so give um a try! We ordered Chicken Korma & Chicken Tikka Masala and an order of Naan, loved it all.
