Cauliflower pakoras at Kathmandu Spice, Arlington

It's been a while since I've had Indian food, and so when R was working from home today and asked what I wanted for lunch, “Indian!” came out quickly. We settled on Kathmandu Spice, a newish restautant on Mass Ave in East Arlington for their lunch buffet.

Kathmandu Spice advertises itself as Boston's first Nepalise restautant, but the cuisine is very similar to Indian. The restautant was clean, nice tables and booths, virtually empty at 1:00pm on a friday so we were sat right away. We had the option of garlic naan or regular to order (which is nice, some place just laid out a basket with the buffet). We chose garlic, and it's was good and very garlicky. In the buffet ($9), there was the standard tandoori chicken (okay, not too dry), chicken curry (good, moist and flavorful), a chickpea dish (nice spice, but it's chickpeas), a potato dish (boring), basmati rice (not as fragrant as it is normally) and a tomato rice (strange to have two rices).

The highlight of my meal was the cauliflower pakoras they had; they were lightly breaded and fried cauliflower florets with garlic and onions. They were light, crispy and airy; the perfect bar snack. I could have eaten a dozen of them. I think it's on the regular menu as Golden Gobi. I think I will be eating a dozen of them again very soon.
