Spices: New Bombay Indian Restaurant

Ever since I had my first authentic Indian meal, I was hooked. There are two authentic Indian places that I frequented, Swagat and New Bombay. I remember years ago when New Bombay was just a small canteen/cafeteria place but now I was ecstatic to see New Bombay turned into a full-blown resto with different branches in the Makati area.

The Mix Pakora are different deep fried treats that are coated with chickpea flour and different herbs. Treats such as Finger Chillies. Sliced Onions, Sweet Potatoes, Cauliflower and my fave is the Cheese. This was served with two kinds of dip, a tamarind and lentil dip.

When it comes to curries, three types comes to mind. Japanese, Thai and Indian. Among all three, the curry that has the most complex flavor is the Indian curry. It has that pungent smell and taste that people will either love or hate. What's nice about this resto is that you can ask them to adjust the spiciness level to your liking. You can go for mild, hot or extra-hot.

The Vegetable Kofta is a mixed vegetable meatball. This is one flavorful filled vegetable dish that's healthy at the same time. So good!

Aside from the fragrant Basmati Rice, Indian meals wouldn't be complete without Naan/Roti bread.The warm soft flaky flatbread is the perfect partner for curries and sauce-laden dishes.

Cheese and Garlic Naan - Php115

When dining in an Indian resto, one must not forget to try out the Lassi. It is a cold creamy yogurt based drink usually served either salted or sweet. There are flavors to choose from but my fave is the Rose Lassi. It smells of roses I like how the sweetness and sourness balances each other out.

Rose Lassi - Php75

When I saw New Bombay expanding I was both thrilled and worried. I was scared that the quality of food might suffer but to my delight it still was the same like it used to be.
