India Gourmet @ the San Leandro Farmers’ MarketPosted: June 5, 2008 | Author: marga | Filed under: Restaurants | Leave a comment »
I returned from a short trip to Berlin yesterday afternoon, and the first thing I did, after coming home, was head to the Farmers’ Market. We were there a little bit later than usual, so we didn’t see all our friends as has become the custom, but we did see enough to make me remember what I so love about this place. We also found that amidst the eating choices the market offers (tamales, corn-on-the-cob, teriyaki sticks & hot dogs and steak & sausage sandwiches), there was a new one: Indian food from (I think) India Gourmet in Watsonville. Of course, I had to try it, and the choices were not bad.
India Gourmet offers wraps (for about $6, I think), rice plates ($8) and full dinners ($12), which include rice and veggie sides. The main entrees include chicken curry, lamb curry and two or three vegan options to which I paid no attention (sorry). They have daal, nan ($2) and mango lassis (no sweet ones, though).
Both the chicken and the lamb curry were pretty good. They were well portioned, enough food to eat, though not too much that there were leftovers. Neither was particularly spicy, but they had enough of a kick to keep my oldest kid away. The curries were well balanced and the meats were tender. They weren’t my favorite curries out there, but I’d have them again.
The nan was also very nice, on the thick side.
