~ Tandoori House (Dublin, Ireland)

Tandoori House
* 1 All Saints Park, Raheny, Dublin, Ireland * Open 17:00 – 23:30 * http://www.tandoorihousetakeaway.com/ *

After a long drive across Ireland, we ‘couldn’t be bothered’ about cooking up a meal, so decided to see what we could find online for delivery in our area. We found this little gem with excellent service, fast delivery, delicious food, and affordable selections. Indian food at its finest. Much enjoyed and we were quite satisfied.

Hasmis Kebabs and Turkish Kitchen (Canberra, Australia)

Hasmis Kebabs Turkish Kitchen
* 11-13 East Row * Canberra, Australia Capital Territory, Australia * 2601 * 02 6249 7783 *

We popped into this hole-in-the-wall quick Turkish cuisine spot near the Phoenix for some lunch fare. While the service was average, the food wasn’t anything to write home about. All three of us felt the fare was unsatisfactory. The restaurant and take-away offers pizza, turkish cuisine, and indian fare. They are open late at night, often serving the bar crowds. They have outdoor dining and free wi-fi. Family owned, Ridvan Sadil and his family took over the business early in 2010. Not so hot. Rating: 2 stars out of 5.

William IV Pub (Truro, Cornwall, England)

William IV Pub
Kenwyn Street, Truro, Cornwall, England * TR1 3DJ * Telephone: 01872273334 *
During mid-week, William IV Pub is one of the few pubs/restaurants opening and serving food after 6 pm in downtown Truro. Located in the busy city center of Truro, the pub boasts a vibrant atmosphere and a fantastic selection of beer and wines. During my visit on 6/15/10 – it was a bit low key, quiet, and excellent speedy service. Since I don’t drink beer, I can’t comment on the selections as I stuck with my usual vodka and tonic. This tuesday was “Curry night” and had some pretty tasty chicken curry presented. I was pleased. The bar runs from 10 am every morning and closes at 11 pm for Sundays through Wednesdays, and closes at 12 am on Thursdays, and 1 am for fridays and saturdays. Food is served noon until 10 pm every day. The pub has its own onsite car park so parking is usually not a problem. William IV is part the the St. Austell Brewery Company. The pub is pretty elaborate, having Sky TV, pool tables, fruit machines, quiz machines, food served, real ale, outside seating in a patio, etc. Overall though, the pub is not any more distinct or different than dime a dozen pubs. Rating 3 stars out of 5.

Yak and Yeti (Truro, Cornwall, England)

Yak and Yeti
* 10 Kenwyn St * Truro TR1 3DJ * Cornwall, England * 01872 272363 858085 * yakandyetitruro.co.uk *
It was my first night wandering around Truro, during my first vacation in Cornwall. Truro was a quiet town and unfortunately, many of the restaurants closed by 6/6:30 pm … and just as I was about to settle for some more English standard pub fare, I spied this little gem. Himalayan\Nepalese\Indian Cuisine – and they were open – much later than most restaurants in Truro. According to the web site, it apparently stays open until 11:30 pm. (23:30) While the staff didn’t seem to be that great with their English, the service was great, prompt, friendly, and efficient. The food was quite tasty and a welcoming break from the English meals I had been dining on pretty solid since this trip to Europe. I feasted on the lamb tikka masala … it was quite excellent. Definitely a pleasing dining experience. Rating: 4 stars out of 5.

Bombay Bowl (Denver, Colorado)


Bombay Bowl * 12023 E Arapahoe Rd * Englewood, CO 80112 * (303) 339-5500 * http://bombaybowl.com/ *
Dropping into this little restaurant that was style after the Tokyo Joe’s and other unique grills, was a bowl of sensations called “Bombay Bowl”. Fresh Indian food fixed before you, quick Indian food to eat in or to go. At first one would think it be a popular chain, but its just starting out. I tried the Chicken Korma with Garlic Naan, and a Mango Latte. Affordable pricing, excellent food, and friendly staff. I’ll definitely be back, now one of my favorite healty fast food spots next to Tokyo Joe’s. Why doesn’t Colorado Springs get any of these amazing little restaurants? Delicious and Amazing.

To celebrate my birthday one of my co-workers introduced me to this fabulous little Indian restaurant off of 8th street in Colorado Springs. (Thank you Linda!) They had a enormous selection of a buffet offered. I got all my favorites and some tasty Naan as well. Great service, great food, good atmosphere, and all of your favorites for all you can eat. The Mutter Paneer and the Malai Kofta were my favorites. Great restaurant. Rating: 4.25 stars out of 5.

A rooftop/upper floor restaurant with nice views of Kitslano is a quaint Indian restaurant with style and grace. Great servie and friendly atmosphere. The food is delicious but very small portions for a high price. We went for the butter chicken, mateer paneer, and another dish, garlic naan, and rice pudding dessert. Good times.

Trader Joes Edamame Hummus


Trader Joes Edamame Hummus

Trader Joes’ Edamame Hummus
~

Review by Leaf McGowan/Thomas Baurley, Technogypsie Productions ~

A very smooth blend of Edamame and hummus that is extremely delicious with the “I can’t stop” attitude. Dipped with pita bread, its a fantastic snack or meal if you eat the whole container like we did on our first trial of the new product now offered by Trader Joe’s grocery. Dynamic. Rating: 5 stars out of 5.

Yak and Yeti (Arvada, Colorado)

Yak and Yeti Indian Buffet (Arvada, Colorado)
7803 Ralston Road * Arvada, CO * 303-431-9000 * http://www.yakandyeti.net/
A nice chilled restaurant and pub nestled in what looked like an old historic house. Supposedly once the Cheshire Cat Pub, now a Yak and Yeti, this establishment had quite a few Alice in Wonderland decoration and ambiance. They had a delicious Indian and Nepal buffet, with some of my favorite dishes. Quite affordable lunch. Great service. Rating: 5 stars out of 5.

Yak and Yeti Indian Cuisine (Westminster, Colorado)

Yak and Yeti * Westminster * 8665 N. Sheridan * Westminster, Colorado * 303-426-1976 * http://www.yakandyeti.net/

A high-quality Indian chain restaurant with a delicious buffet. This Westminster branch is located in a shopping court and is easily located for a drive by from the highway. The decor is modest and lacks extravagance as one usually sees in most moderately priced Indian restaurants, but the service is very good, as is the food. The Buffet is all you can eat for $14.95 and gives you a wide variety of some of your favorite Indian dishes. All in all, a good experience, and I’m sure I’ll be back. Rating 3.5 stars out of 5. Visited 7/18/08.
