while i enjoyed the rainy weather during my trip to atlanta, i enjoyed the food even better. we ate out every night but only once did we take photos of the food. in decatur, there is a large indian population and judging from the restaurants, many of them are vegetarian. we stopped at one strip center where 3 of the 4 restaurants proclaimed they were vegetarian-indian restaurants. not a problem for us. we walked in to thali restaurant
and were seated, handed menus and like a couple of tourists who don’t speak the language-we sat there lost. luckily for us, a nice young man came over and explained to us that we didn’t need to worry, the menu was prix fixe and all the dishes would be chosen by the chef-all we had to do was eat. so, eat we did! and by the way, we have no idea what we ate; we took comfort in the fact that it was vegetarian and that at least it would be plant parts and not critter parts.
a snack to start with-fried crunchy snacks that were a bit spicy when dipped in the sauces
the appetizer platter. i tried it all and i enjoyed it all too
the main course. i loved the breads and the potatoes. the soup and the dal were tasty too, i ate a lot
the third course was beans and rice and sauce. i liked the beans, they were creamy like refried beans but they were probably mung beans and not pintos. our fourth and final course was a scoop of ice cream with saffron, pistachios and fruit-it was tasty. we finished up, paid the check ($37.08 for 2 with a $5 tip!) and we rolled (literally) to the car…had fun and i can’t wait to go back!
