Carroll Gardens delivery options

Appetizer: Fresh summer rolls, which consisted of mint leaf, tofu, noodles and bean sprouts, with a tamarind dipping sauce. Not as special as they could be. One out of four stars

The Main Event: Massamun curry, with shrimp and tofu. This is one of the best curries I have ever had. Very simple, as massamun should be, with no more than potato, onion slices and peanuts. The curry was thick, fairly rich and held together in a way few take-out curries do...the oil had separated before delivery but a quick shake of the take-out container re-constituted the curry and it remained intact throughout the meal. The shrimp were a little over cooked, again a symptom of most delivered curries as the shrimp continues to cook in the hot container, but the tofu was stellar: fried and tender, very, very fresh, I would guess homemade on the premises. It was delicate and fell apart on the fork - and this was not a problem! Four out of four stars

I'll be back...
