Tonight for dinner I made Indian Food from a package. It was those weird Tasty Bite things you buy from Trader Joe’s, and after my other half and I finished eating them we realized how filthy dirty disgusting they are. Then I realized how much they cost (about $9 for three packages-just enough to feed two people). Then I thought, why the hell didn’t we just go out? Especially with all the great Indian food places around.
The best Indian food I’ve found lately has come from India Sweets and Spices, a big cafeteria-like restaurant in Los Feliz (Atwater?) on Los Feliz Blvd. Maybe you’ve heard of it? If not, I sincerely suggest going sometime, especially if you want really yummy food for dirt cheap. About five bucks gets you enough food to bust your pants with, and it’s really good. While you definitely aren’t paying for the ambiance, (unless you like the whole school cafeteria feeling), you are getting more than your money’s worth at this delicious restaurant. When you’re done you can even go next door to their food market and buy the things you just ate, and fail miserably at making them at home, like me. Very fun.
