(9)
August 31, 2014

Bombay Grille Cuisine of India is a delightful surprise for vegetarians and especially vegans. It has a large selection of vegetarian entrees and appetizers (many of which are vegan) and waiters that know exactly how the food is prepared.

Restaurant Review: Saffron Indian Cuisine

Understand, when I do a restaurant review, I do it from a veg (and mostly vegan) point of view. That means, a place like Saffron (2135-B, Ayrsley Town Boulevard, Charlotte, NC) might have the best goat biryani in the world, but I’m not interested.  That’s not what I’m reporting on.  I’m judging and reporting on the… Read More ›

Restaurant Review: Maharani Indian Cuisine

Maharani is, without question, my favorite Indian restaurant in Charlotte. I admit I’m prejudiced. Maharani is where I had my first date with my partner … on September 21, 2009. And, Maharani was my re-introduction to Indian food.  Charlotte, until recently, was not very diverse.  Growing up, there was only one Indian restaurant in Charlotte,… Read More ›

Restaurant Review – Sangam Indian Cuisine

More proof you can find vegan Indian cuisine in the Charlotte, NC area … Sangam, a restaurant that specializes in Punjabi food (my favorite)!

Indian restaurants can be a bit intimidating your first visit or two.   You enter the restaurant, and your mouth waters – but you can’t really explain or identify what you are smelling.  There may be traditional or contemporary Indian music in the background – you start to get into it, there’s some sort of weird funky one-string… Read More ›

Update … To Ghee or Not To Ghee

I called/emailed most of the Charlotte-area Indian restaurants today to see how willing they were to prepare a vegan meal.  Woodlands, Situl, Bombay Grill, Copper, and The Blue Taj all said a vegan meal would be no problem!  I did clarify that a vegan meal meant no butter, no cream, no paneer, no yogurt.  Still… Read More ›

To Ghee or Not To Ghee

Whenever someone hears my partner and I cook mostly Punjabi food, the reaction is always the same. “You eat all that GHEE?  But that’s SOO many calories!  I could never eat Indian food – I’d be as big as a house!” an omnivore will exclaim, looking askance at my size 6 body and my partner’s slim… Read More ›
