What I Ate: April 12, 2009 (Popeye's, New Tandoori Cafe)

Around lunch-time, I ran out to drop off a trunk load of stuff off at Goodwill. Afterward, I headed over to Erik's DeliCafe but they were closed (because it's Easter). I went one more block to Popeyes Chicken and picked up three pieces of spicy chicken with a corn-on-the-cob. (I grabbed Tina a Chicken and Sausage Jambalaya and Mashed Potatoes and Gravy.)

For dinner, we headed down to New Tandoori Cafe (5134 Stevens Creek Blvd, San Jose, CA‎ - (408) 247-9010) because we wanted something reasonably quick. Tina ordered a new item - the Chicken Desi Burger - which was quite tender and flavorful (but it took a long time for it to come out). The chicken was heavily seasoned in "Indian" spices. I ordered the Lamb Seekh Kabob Wrap with Garlic Naan (which is what I normally get). As usual, it was tasty.

We also ordered Aloo Gobi which arrived before anything else. I was a little disappointed in the Aloo Gobi because part of it was cold (colder than ambient) while other parts were hot… did they microwave this? Except for the temperature issue, it tasted good and we devoured it fairly quickly. (We were also really hungry and sending it back would have delayed putting food into our stomachs.)
