I had been meaning to try Taste of India ever since it opened in the Fall. But I just never quite got around to it. So when my friend Alan suggested a snowy dinner adventure out there last Wednesday, I jumped at the chance.
Taste of India is on Main Street in Mishawaka, near Drive and Shine. The parking lot can be a bit hard to find under all of that snow, so just go like you are parking at the Arby’s next door.
We ended up with eight people in our party, which was the perfect size to do a family style taste test of many of the dishes. We started with pakoras and samosas, both of which I thought were excellent. The samosas were crunchy, fluffy pyramids of potato, pea and spice. The pakoras were freshly fried and disappeared within minutes.
For dinner we got a sampling of curries (including goat), tandoori chicken, and a delicious cauliflower dish. We over-ordered on the naan, which came out fluffy, buttery, and garlicky. Each piece was the size of a small pizza. We washed it all down with a round of Kingfishers. The staff were wonderful, and took great care of us.
I thought Taste of India was delicious, and I definitely want to go back soon (or even try it for take out).
