Roti – Indian Dinner

Most of the Asian restaurants were closed today so we found ourselves at Roti – an Indian restaurant in Queen Anne. This is the 2nd time we’ve been there and we love the food. The restaurant has fairy lights all throughout it, giving it a festive ambience.

We started with samosas with some chutney and mint yogurt.

Then we shared 2 entrees: Methi [Fenugreek] Chicken and Lamb Biryani. Both delicious.

Very Chocolatey Cake

Double chocolate cake, chocolate ganache and chocolate buttercream. What’s not to like?!

Polish Deli

My camera phone came to the rescue this afternoon when I wanted to take a picture of my delicious deli delight [this one’s for my alliteration-happy cousin]. I have reformatted my memory card for the other camera but I haven’t tested it out yet. Maybe tonight. Last night we had a fabulous time at the Pink Martini concert and didn’t have time to take pictures of the tacos we made. The Benaroya Hall is gorgeous and the acoustics, amazing, we’re definitely heading back for more.

So back to my lunch – I walked down Madison yesterday to a deli I had seen while heading to the library the night before. George’s Sausage & Deli is a Polish Delicatessen. They stock some wonderful looking sausages and cheeses. You can also find all sort of confection and Polish gossip mags. For some brief moments, I felt like I was in Europe.

I decided on a nice pastami on rye, something to drink and brought home chocolate wafers and a Kinder Bueno for Mike. He loved the Kinder Bueno – I used to eat it a lot when in Singapore. Wait till he tries those Kinder Eggs. It was all scrummy.

Cannoli

After going in to the studio for about an hour today, we went to the Mediterranean Bakery to get some freshly baked bread and a cherry cannoli*.
