Indian Buffet

What is your favourite comfort food? What do you eat on those days when it’s snowy and cold outside? I crave Indian food. There’s a buffet around the corner from where I work that I really enjoy. I usually go with a friend, but I’ve been known to sneak off by myself if I can’t find a lunch companion, and sometimes that’s hard since it’s so much food and really heavy to eat when you have to return to work. I’m sure that I smell of garlic afterwards and sorry to my coworkers as this could potentially be the reason they keep a safe distance from me on those days. 

My friend Caroline was always willing to go with me. I think she’s an even bigger fan since she’ll get a side of the Butter Chicken sauce to dip her naan bread in. Caroline started a new job further south so she can’t meet me anymore. I can sometimes convince other friends to go but most of the time they’re not in the mood. I miss my buffet companion! Anyway, it’s snowy out and it makes me want buffet.

The buffet I got to is Indian-Nepalese. They have a pretty good selection of dishes, especially vegetarian. They used to serve a beef or a lamb curry at lunch, but now only serve Butter Chicken and a goat curry. That was a little disappointing when they changed that, because I think I'm one of the few who isn't too keen on Butter Chicken, and the goat curry has too many bones like goat always does. I think if you go on the weekend you can still get the beef or the lamb. Regardless, they have such a good selection of veggie curries I'm not too bothered by it.

Check it out!


  1. ohhhh i love that place. alex always took us there! ;)

  2. I didn't know that! To think we could have gone when you were here. We really didn't take advantage of working in the same area nearly enough.
