Have you ever tried something so rich in flavor that it permeates thru your whole being? Something so hearty that you just overwhelmed with the bursting flavors that seem to come from every direction? That’s how it felt when I first tasted Indian food. The more I had, the more I wanted, and from then on, I always craved it/
Luckily I stumbled upon the Royal Indian Curry House in Poblacion, we were still quite unsure whether to try it but the servers outside ushered us in encouraging us to give it a chance. The moment we stepped inside we could already smell the fragrant spices of Indian Cuisine. I was quite surprised with the interior, it had a nice ambiance, very clean, vibrant, lovely velvet sofas, ambient lighting and these beautifully carved wooden pillars that were on the sides of the room. There were a lot of guests at this time considering it was 10 pm during a weekday.
When we were first seated, they served us this thin crisp Indian bread that the servers called /pa-per/ with sesame seeds and these 3 sauces, namely: Chili, Green Chutney( I think this has a lot of silantro), and tamarind paste. To be frank, all I could think about at this point, were the Samosas that would go perfectly with these sauces. They also used the classic stainless steel plates I usually see used in Indian movies, making it a good balance of casual and high end.
Next up is the Butter chicken. If cant handle spicy then this dish is for you. It’s creamy, full bodied, a bit sweet and tasty. Everything butter chicken is supposed to be. I remember when I used to live in Canada, my uncle who was a chef would make tons of this and stock it up in our refrigerator. It brings me back when I would fill up a bowl with piping hot rice and this chicken. Not bad for 349 pesos per order.
