  1. Great post and pics! Girl, love how you really described & expressed your day and the food at the restaurant..can just visualize myself sitting there lol! Love Indian food (of course since I’m indian) but those are mouthwatering 🙂

    1. Hey Nurul, I am a biryani lover too. Indian Accent did not have biryani though it featured a similar vegetarian rice dish. But once you step into it you embrace the not so known dishes as well.

    1. Hiya Lorelle, this was my first go at naan stuffed with butter chicken so needless to say I did it justice. We have just about finished unpacking the shipment that arrived last weekend. Now everything is in place and it feels Grand! Thanks for asking 🙂 xx

    1. Which is why I love thee so. I have decided that I shall start baking this very weekend. My baking equipment is finally here. Yippee. I have missed my kitchen so!

      We cannot wait to slowly discover the many shades of NYC, Angela. It is a bit exciting even though I miss our summer hikes terribly.

      1. A friend who lives in NYC did mention there were a few. I have to do my research and make a list. For the longest time now I have wanted to go to Colorado, Montana, Utah, New Orleans, North Carolina…we have to get around to making plans slowly because there is nothing like the great outdoors 🙂 xx

  2. Wow I wish I lived in a major city New York, just for the food factor alone 🙂 We have an Indian restaurant in town, but the food is not that delicious. Sadly we have no other options. All those dishes look mouth-watering! Can’t wait to visit Delhi next year and try out all the amazing food 😀

    1. Hey Pooja, do you live in Warsaw? I am trying to remember if we went to any Indian restaurants while staying there for my husband’s work, but I doubt we ended up at one. I usually replicate the flavours of childhood at home because restaurants tend to let you down. But this particular one was a winner on all fronts.

      Btw Poland is so pretty. We had a long list of places that we wanted to see after Krakow…someday!

      1. I actually live in a city called Lodz which is just 1.5 hours car ride away from Warsaw 🙂 Lodz feels far less diverse than Warsaw, that’s why we don’t have that many choices in international cuisine.
        Poland is pretty indeed! I love living in Europe – so many beautiful places and they’re all so near from each other. I hope I’ll publish some more blog posts about Poland this year. 🙂

      2. I know about Lodz. I had read about it in this book, Auschwitz: The Final Solution. I am sure it has character. Once you live in Europe, there is no other kind of living that will suit the heart, hun. I will wait to read you posts.

  3. I love places that serve small plates or in this case sampling. You can have a bit of everything and not end up being too full (though that never happens, does it?). Also, I am now cooking kadai chicken for dinner today. Thanks 😀

    1. Hahaha the teaser works. I shall dream of it and slaver. The small portions work for me all the way. I feel sated and yet not too full. My husband however had the beef and lamb and by the end of it he was heaving. But then what do you expect when you have meat cooked in ghee? 😉

  4. You had me at Blue Cheese Naan. How decadent! Your description of food and the senses rival Liz Gilbert’s! Loved the “scandalous graffiti” art. Appropriate for a hot summer night 😉 – Neek

    1. Hahhaha steamy alright. I noticed it later when I was going through the photos 😉 The question is do kids have blinders in place?

      The blue cheese naan was divine. An explosion of taste and I cannot recommend it enough.

      You are so lovely Neek to even come up with that compliment. I appreciate your kindness always. xx

  5. Indian Accent looks and sounds fantastic, I’ve made a note of its location for our November trip to NY. I confess, I’ve already been to the Magnolia Bakery – got the book, didn’t get the t-shirt, have eaten some of their cakes!

    1. I will wait to hear of your experience there, Sheree. For we all have such different likes and dislikes. But it should prove to be an interesting experience nonetheless, of that I can assure you. Is the book any good? My baking goddesses are usually Nigela Lawson and Mary Berry 😉 xx

  6. Another delicious post that made me hungry (again) 😉
    I used to go to Magnolia Bakery in Chicago every weekend, we should go when I am in NY please 🙂

  7. It looks amazing! The whole lot. What a fantastic treat. I wonder if working class British Food would work on a tasting menu – bubble and squeak, toad in the hole, shepherd’s pie…spotted dick.

    Cakes look good too!

    Don’t go all American in your diet!

    1. The first few days I had my fill of fried chicken and burgers, and I was convinced that this was it, I was on my way to fulfilling Javon’s prophecy. He was the guy who had sold us our mattress in NYC and had told me, ‘You will become Big now.’
      I was alarmed.

      We are watching portions with gimlet eyes and trying to get back to our usual mode of eating home-cooked food. Btw classic British food in a tasting menu would be great, don’t you think? I am sure there are folks already doing it in London though I have not read about it.

      1. We are on the mission to get some good fish n’ chips in the city next! Adi is pining for some because this is the time when we would be out on our various country capers, digging into hearty pub meals. xx

  8. Sounds great!

    I have been known to make very average naan bread on occasion – I will be wedging some blue cheese in there next time. Now, can I fit a traditional clay oven in the corner of my kitchen?

    That’s the question.

    1. Once an Englishman told me in tones –
      suggesting that it was ridiculous for the thought not having occurred to me in the natural scheme of things – that, ‘Why, everyone can own a fireplace!’

      Inspired by him, I shall say, ‘Why, everyone can have a clay oven in the corner of their kitchens!’

      I smell the start of a path-breaking adventure in the kitchen.

  9. I can’t decide if you were being kind or cruel in posting this. The descriptions of your dinner were already making me drool, but then you had to add pictures?! It’s cruelty. I am going to go in a corner and weep bitter tears for the meal I did not get to savor…

      1. There is no making up for this one until I eat a delicious meal that includes naan and curry. I will work on that asap so we can resume our friendship quickly. ? Or I will show Cam the post and use his hunger-induced impaired judgement to buy airline tickets to New York. Then I will be thanking you. Or both… Yes, I think both.

        Oh and glad you guys had such a nice dinner to celebrate. Happy birthday to Adi! ?
