Northern Indian Cuisine in Austin?

Thanks all! Ended up trying Bombay Bistro. It was the right atmosphere for the evening we had planned and, happily, the food was pretty solid too.

Will keep adventuring and give the food at some of your other recommendations a try.

Chilaquiles

We concur on the Curra's - though we had them at the Señor Buddy's location on HWY 290.

If this were a Seattle thread we'd send you to Señor Moose Cafe in Ballard. Still on a quest for our favorite and taking copious notes here.

@ebloom - we're with you on the migas... still just don't quite get it. Maybe it's just a preference for the over-easy eggs vs. scrambled...

Thai Groceries

I second the MT market recommendation... it's a bit of a drive for us too, but a fun occasional excursion and reasonable prices.

We stock up on the non-perishables like fish sauce, palm sugar, etc, and grow the Thai Basil in our herb garden. (The Siam Queen was a rockstar until the freeze hit.) On a good day you can get a decent selection of veggies (eggplant, daikon, etc.) at HEB.

Seeking Gourmet Stores in Austin region

MT Supermarket on N. Lamar is a larger store, but an awesome resource for Asian and other international items (including produce) that can be hard to find elsewhere.

Northern Indian Cuisine in Austin?

So it seems... from poking around online it looks like most report to be Southern & Northern and the reviews are either few or oddly mixed. Granted, a lunch buffet can be quite a different creature from a weeknight dinner service in any given restaurant, so that is a factor to consider.

Northern Indian Cuisine in Austin?

We're hoping for a recommendation on some good home-style Northern Indian food in the Austin area. A place that might have a solid Lamb Rogan Josh on the menu or a great Aloo Saag.

It can't be a fast food style place (a la Tarka) and we're not looking for "fusion" cuisine – however fabulous it may be – just a good place to go with friends and enjoy a nice authentic dinner.

Willing to travel a little out of the way for something good.

Excellent Felafel found

Zaina's makes a roasted cauliflower sandwich as well. They have mixed the cauli and falafel for me in the past, which is tasty. Not so sure about the pickle, though...

Excellent Felafel found

Sounds like a beautiful felafel, staffstuff.

As "felafel sandwiches" go, though, have to agree with RandyB - Zaina's is wonderful. These are not the lettuce and tomato stuffed variety like you find at Med Mix and most other locals. The location downtown by Macy's closed a few years back, but the ones they made there were spicy and magical.

Antonelli's Cheese Shop

Stinky cheese rocks!! Sounds like you have a convert - way to go! :)

Antonelli's Cheese Shop

Antonelli's is a gustatory god-send!

It is so much fun to taste and choose your cheese with people who appreciate the good "stinky" stuff. And with the seasonal and limited availability of many of their artisanal items, there is always going to be something new to experience.
