Breads of India

This is a short post mostly because I wasn’t prepared to eat here nor planning to blog it. BUT the naan here is the best I’ve had in Berkeley – the pools of melted ghee on top of each naan with the perfect amount of saltiness to bring out the richness was indeed a factor. As was the chewy, almost mochi-like or half-baked consistency of the edges (this might turn some people off but it was a great texture for me). Mine was layered with fresh sweet peas nestled between the layers of bread. This place lives up to its name, with at least five different types of naan (3) everyday. Some are stuffed with chickpeas, ginger, radish, or corn.

I was underwhelmed by the veggie curry (8) but my companion raved about the lamb (11). The menu is short and apparently changes daily to suit “the discerning gourmet”. Translation: they have only a few items and pre-cook everything to save money/time, which means our orders came out five minutes after we ordered. It’s a nice place to get something quick but for a sit-down place I wasn’t really expecting that – I mean, House of Curries can afford to cook the food right in front of you and take at least ten minutes. But I’d go again for the variety of awesome naan and maybe try the Korma.
