How about empanadas filled with curried beef or chicken. Would be kind of like a samosa.

Tacos are the universal solvent for leftovers. They WORK. A little shot from the bottle of that spicy guacamole sauce or whatsit and whatever you've got on hand is transformed into GOODNESS. Easy on the cook, too.

Well, hey, we ate there today, and I thought it made a nice change from our usual restaurants and Chez Moi. Variety is the spice of life.

Took 2 combos meals home today. Very good. Great to have them here for a quick meal. Much better than Jasmine's.

We call those "Jamaican patties" in Vancouver. They were started by a couple illegal Jamaicans on Vancouver's giant nude beach - Wreck Beach, they also sold spliffs and cold beer, figured, correctly that police would be unlikely to raid. I was concerned where they kept their change and the patties, but they had change purses and ice coolers. Then they opened a storefront and commercial kitchen. I miss the large West Indian influence there.

Roti is like a flour tortilla, made with Atta flour, which is ground wholewheat. The Vancouver patties have an enclosed, crunchy flaky pastry, inside dripping with greasy goodness and quite spicy for palates of that time.

Australians have their famous Hansa pie, a small meat pie where the top crust is puff/flaky pastry, the bottom is wholewheat pastry. Again filled with greasy goodness. Australians can cheer their favorite football or rugby team with a pie in one hand, large can of beer in the other. Canadians have a unique talent, which I have witnessed many times, they can carry a can/bottle of beer, and a cigarette at the same time, and if they fall, not a drop is spilled or a puff wasted.

I fight myself not to eat at this curry place every day! I love the veg curry, and everything I've had has been delicious.

I am no expert in Indian food, but I tried it today and enjoyed the curry chicken and butter chicken I had, along with the rice. Not "hot" spicy but tasty enough. I'll return.

I thought the naan lame. Definitely not fried, just sort of a tired piece of bad pita, or something.

Naan isn't supposed to be fried. It is brushed with melted butter and baked in an oven or on a grill. I found it lacking in garlic.

I know naan isn't fried. But this just wasn't much of anything. Maybe they ran out of naan and I really did just get a piece of pita. Either way I'll be back.

I really like the food there and go about 3 times a week, for now - or until I get tired of it. The people are nice and since I cannot eat the wheat items they usually give me a good serving of curry and rice. Works for me.

However, I was disappointed to see today that the to-go container has gotten smaller.

As did Kiwifruirt, this boy spent some time in In India traveling about and my time there was in the 1960s when a 2nd class (there were three classes on Indian trains in those days) cost me the equivalent of about $13 USD. 3rd Class was dirt cheap but quite uncomfortable and, shall we say, crowded and 1st Class was subject to robbery by highwaymen in those times plus passengers one met there tended to be a bit snooty. I became quite fond of Indian food there although I must say that I found the Indian food in East Africa better when speaking of Northern Indian cuisine but that's another story. I look forward to returning to Ajijic from San Cristobal de Las Casas soon to try this new "Indian" restuarant there but my expctations are modest ad I have found Indian food in North America to have been modified to suit North American tastes. Exported Indian food is generally spiced down except, in my experience, in England and East Africa and that is my expectation in Ajijic as well.. I have no. doubt about this. My favorite cuisine in India was Madras style vegetarian food. i will abslutely not be experiencing that style of cooking in Ajijic and that presumption is not meant as a negative, simply a fact of life

Like Trailrunner, I was surprised at the quality and taste of the vegetarian curry, and the vegetarian with black gram lentil stew. Real home style, comfort food taste. The rice cooked to perfection as well. If they were smart, they would stock some Indian and Pakistani curry pastes and chutneys. Big profits on those items.

No doubt is right. In Ajijic an egg salad sandwich is spiced dowm.

Has anyone else noticed the attitude of the "spicier than thou" toward those who can't digest hot, super spicy stuff? Makes me feel like I should have ordered a new stomach before daring to move to Mexico.  But then, I keep running into Mexican natives who can't handle it either.  A comfort of sorts.

Whether it's totally authentic or just marginally so, that new Indian restaurant's food is "just right" for this wuss. Love the flavors !
Very Happy

Yes, Gringal. I have noticed the condescending attitude by some toward those who can not handle super spicy (or even spicy at all) food. I enjoy a moderate amount of heat but do not apologize for passing on the stuff that sets my mouth and insides on fire.

Same category as the "more Mexican than thou" who can't resist posting in Spanish on this or TOB.
lol!

Can't they be easily ignored?   Just like the person who can throw down 15 straight shots of whiskey while someone else is nursing one pina colada.
Don't bother me either way or up or down.....to each his own.

I do ignore them but I notice it because, well, I am reading their post or listening to them talk. Just making a comment about it now since Gringal asked. It's called conversation and not a big deal.

....not meant to be taken seriously, just "conversation" as Lady O.L. said.
Another branch of the same tree as those expats who don't want to be where there are "too many gringos".  

Fine if you're fluent in Spanish and say so until you decide to post an entire article in same on an English speaking web board where some do and some don't have their Spanish solidly in place.  Some are too old to learn; some too deaf to converse and some just dinna care.
I say give them a break.  Google Translate turns languages into mush. Be kind to the language impaired.

In my family, Spanish is the first language, I use my IFE card for ID, and my Mexican passport for travel abroad, so being "more Mexican than thou" comes naturally and without malice.
Mexicans are all over the place on how much comida picante they can handle, but it is probably more than foreigners, but to say spicier is saying a lot more. Mexican cuisine has/use a lot of spices that are not picante. Picante is one word non Spanish speakers should learn as English doesn't seem to have an equivalent. ("hot" has a very different dual meaning as well as "spicier")
When I'm around family, I'm probably around "too many Mexicans", and when I indulge on this board, I'm probably around "too many gringos"....so be it. lol!
I try to only use Spanish here, in/with interaction with a few other members who occasionally write something in Spanish, and not to "show off".  I haven't seen any rules of the board that prohibits the use of Spanish, and I can guarantee that there are a whole lot of Spanish speakers, that I know, who follow this board with some degree of regularity, that don't post because they are not articulate in English, but like to learn how English speakers converse and more importantly their attitudes about things. This also applies to TOB and why I have so much problem with it, especially MC and his chief toadys.

I understand what you're saying.  I suggested that you don't take any of mine or Lady Otter"s banter on the subject seriously.  You know who the "put down" artists on these boards are who do the "more Mexican than thou" number; same with the "too many gringos" people or the ones that feel superior because they DON'T live in Ajijic and then, the ones who feel superior because they DO.  You haven't been guilty of any of it, by the way. Good on you.

Most of us do learn early on that the word is "picante" for fiery cuisine. Otherwise, our only hope is requesting "crema" or going hungry.

I've taken at least three Spanish courses over the years and worked with online courses. I'm old and nearly deaf, so serious conversation in the language is hopeless, but I can usually get through printed material and exchanges with workers, tradesmen and my tolerant neighbors.

Now, how about that Indian food court food: have you tried it?
