Anyway, the chapli kababis were awesome. Aromatic, flavorful, and spicy -- I might be experiencing some heartburn later on today, but it will be worth it. They are basically meat patties (minced beef) with numerous spices mixed in, served with rice, onions, and cilantro. There were 5 levels of spiciness to choose from, and I opted for "Hot" (maybe next time I will try "very hot"). Even the rice was aromatic and flavorful -- not your everyday bland white rice. I would give it 5 stars, and will definitely have it again.

Very hot is a lot hotter than hot. It can be a health risk. I have seen someone almost suffocate.... we had to carry him out and administer someone else's asthma inhaler... and he was a strapping young man, too. So be careful with the very hot.... if you must try, order hot and some extra spice on the side and add teeny tiny amounts until it's not fun anymore.

I'm pretty careful with that, but the person who wrote the review that pointed me to this place said he asked them to make the vindaloo (which I haven't tried yet) "as hot as they could make it", and it wasn't all that hot. A lot of restaurants (in this area at least) tend to be afraid of making things too hot -- maybe because of the type of scenario you describe. If I do try the "very hot", I will sample it sparingly at first to make sure I can handle it. But thanks for the warning.

The Jains are strictly vegetarian and wont eat tomatoes beetroot or anything red because its the colour of blood, strange but true or so I'm told Big Grin

Some coffee sounds good right about now. I recently switched creamers when my grocery store stopped carrying Silk brand soy creamers. I actually like the new one better.
