Good Indian Restaurant in Bend Oregon

I went to the Taj Palace a few years ago because I absolutely LOVE Indian food. Unfortunately, it was a huge disappointment. It was among the worst Indian food that I have ever tried. I have noticed though, that it's difficult to find a good Indian restaurant. I have yet to find one in Oregon. I have discovered that if the restaurant is unable to make a good Chai tea, it is highly unlikely the food is going to be any better. Visited a great one down in Hayward, California and a hole in the wall place in Tacoma, WA called "The Gateway To India." Those two were excellent.

Cookie that gets warm before melting in mouth

Thank you for the information about that wafel. It sounds interesting but no, it's not the same. There was nothing inside the cookie. I still think it was similar to a shortbread cookie that gets warm when it touches your tongue.

Cookie that gets warm before melting in mouth

About 20 years ago, a foreign exchange student from Tokyo came over to the United States and with her, she brought some cookies that got warm in the mouth before they melted, almost like they had liquor in them. I don't know if they were a form of shortbread cookie or what, but was wondering if someone might have more information on these. Seems to me they were a thin cookie or wafer.
