Yeah I know. It's been awhile since I posted something or browsed around other SD food blogs. And no the economy ain't affecting how much money I allocate to eating out. There's just too much on my plate right now. (Ha? I think I just made a funny!)
Really, though. Big life/career decisions coming up for me. Yeah okay none of you care about that. Let's see what I've been eatin':
There's an Indian take-out place called Punjabi Tandoor in Mira Mesa that's been on my To-Dine list for about a year so. I've consulted a few Indian friends about the authenticity/taste of the food, and they gave me the thumbs up.
First visit there, I went with the Combo-for-Two ($21.95), which really oughta be renamed Combo-for-Three:
Naan (w/ butter)
Half of a Tandoori Chicken
HEAPING mound of rice and two large bowls of meat/veggie curry of your choice
Like I said. It was a lot of food. I honestly don't even know where to begin when it comes to describing the various tastes and aromas in Indian cuisine, so I'll just post what most Yelpers post: It was yummy. Actually, "yummy" doesn't even do this place justice. Let's go with "mind-blowing".
Dinner was such a great experience that over the next two weeks I made quite a few revisits for lunch. I did not snap photos of each visit, however. Food doesn't look nice photographed in a to-go box.
Here's one of the many Combos:
Even a big eater like me could not finish it all. $7 buys me both lunch and dinner! Sweet.
The only "bad" thing I can say is that the lamb chunks in the Rogan Josh (and possibly other lamb curries) were a tad tough to chew. I have yet to order lamb a second time, but I'll update this post when I do.
Getting here is quite a drive, and the traffic is g'damn irritating. But trust me. It'll be worth it.
