Ethnic Confusion. AKA Marindian, or in other words, Avatar's. I have been here a few times, but not recently. Paul and I wanted to have a quick but good lunch, and this place came to mind. It was really delightful. Ashok was a most charming and attentive host, and everything was fabulous. Cultures are quite blended here, Marin taste sensibility with the best of Indian cooking. Hmm... another for "A Taste of Terroir"? Although more in spirit than likely much of the goods.
I had a rose petal lassi (yum!) and Paul and I shared a Samosa Plate appetizer.
I had a "Trio of Biriyani". What a blend of tastes! Ground lamb, tofu & vegetables and chicken tenders over basmati rice.
Paul had chicken marinated in yoghurt, and pronounced it quite delicious.
We couldn't resist trying out the ONLY dessert on the menu - Avatar's Dream. Wow, ice cream pie never tasted so good!
