Totally my bad on letting that slip…I know I promised a post on Aeheli weeks ago when we decided to go to Cesca against popular opinion.
Sunday, October 14, 2012: After a relatively heaving night of drinking the evening prior, TH and I wanted to settle our stomachs with some heart warming and flavorful Indian food. We tried Aeheli on 55th and 9th Avenue – and all I can say is that it was AMAZING. Great, high-quality, no frills Indian cuisine. The restaurant is teeny tiny and nothing super fancy or high-end, but the food is really awesome. I had Chicken Tandoori, which is basically just grilled chicken; however it is rubbed in some spices and Indian yogurt and then baked in a clay Indian oven – a Tandoor and some Gobi Bhuna which is cauliflower tossed in a red sauce filled up with spices including cilantro (my fave and some curries – really fantastic).
Anyway, I ended escaping an Indian restaurant with a relatively healthy meal, minus any Naan I had – that stuff is just too good to resist.
Again, more to come – so much to catch you up on.
