Houston Does India Proud!

Indian food is a delicacy and if cooked correctly, can push your palate into a whole new world. Whether it’s off the beaten path or standing tall in the trendy Galleria area, there are many good restaurants to choose from in Houston. Indika has been a popular restaurant in the Houston area for a long time and continues to bring in rave reviews. The classy Kiran's restaurant is sure to "wow" your date with its spectacular menu, ambiance and service. And, if meat isn’t your thing, Udipi Café specializes in vegetarian cuisine. Indian food can be prepared from mild to volcanic, so make sure you specify the amount of heat your tongue can take! Raita, a whole-milk yogurt mixed with cucumber and carrots, is recommended to soothe the palate against spicier dishes. Eating Poppadoms, which is a wafer-thin Indian bread seasoned with spices like cumin and pepper with select sauces for an appetizer at an Indian restaurant is similar to eating tortilla chips and salsa at a Mexican joint. If offered, mint sauces are good for digestion prior to eating a big Indian meal and is generally served with poppadoms.


Houston offers an array of restaurant choices from casual to classy, from traditional menu to exotic and from curry to pizza. Yes, pizza. So, if you haven't tried Indian food, don't shy away from what Houston has to offer. The choices for reasonably priced, authentic, Indian-styled food are pretty awesome!
