I tried a new (to me) Indian restaurant today – Bombay Express. Here’s my review:
“What’s on your thali plate today?”
“A vegetable korma, which is…”
“I’ll take that.” (I love korma!)
“Do you want to hear the rest?”
“Nope. Can I get the vegan option.”
“The korma isn’t vegan, I can swap it with the chickpeas.”
I’m a little sad I forgot that korma is cream based, but not at all sad that I still went with the thali. Also, major props to the staff for knowing what’s vegan and what isn’t without having to run ask someone. AND, you can’t tell from the online menu very obviously, but almost everything on the menu either already is, or can be made vegan (korma wasn’t on the regular menu). And the portions are totally filling. I will say that I’m used to taking home left overs when I go out to eat because typical portions are so huge, so if you’re someone who always cleans your plate on American super sized portions you may want to get an additional side. My friend got a dosa and samosas and took one of the samosas home. I did manage to finish my thali and I left completely stuffed and completely satisfied. I can’t wait to go back.
