Enough with the furshluggina chicken dishes at Indian Buffets, already!
Tandori chicken. Chicken Marsala. Chicken Tikka. Chicken Vidiloo...
Enough with the the chicken dishes at Indian Buffets already! I've been to lots of them between Edison and Lawrenceville. I have chicken dishes coming out of my mehoxis already.
Can't they replace just one chicken dish for a lamb dish? A Fish on my dish maybe? A goat in my boat? I've been to one in Monmouth Junction a few weeks ago...FOUR CHICKEN entrees...not one other non-veggie type! As said in Cochin, "GEVALT!"
If the Colonel doesn't serve goat, why can't the Indian Buffets serve one of their steam trays with a little more variety? Ingredients cost a bit more? Well if I don't want to go because of the overabundance of pulkas and fleegles, they'll lose more by the loss of my revenue.
Friends who own Indian Restaurants...pull up your standards. You don't go to Baskin Robbins and get a three-scoop vanilla cone, do you?
Make a LAMB dish, for corn's sake!
Thanks for the suggestions...as a sidenote, there's a pretty decent Pakisani-halal restaurant, Supreme, in Kendall Park on Route 27...they have Goat, an occasional lamb dish, curries in addition to other stews. And they only charge $8 weekdays. If they can do it economically, why not the northern or southern-style Indian buffets?
I went to one in East Brunswick last Friday...was good but they had only Tandori Chicken and Chicken Curry...the other steamtrays had veggie dishes. It was pretty good, but one other non-chicken meat dish would certainly have been appreciated.
And I see a trend I'm not happy with...cutting out salads. No lettuce-tomato-onion bowls, although they had mint and another chutney.
Whoa! Chicken Marsala?!!! In an Indian restaurant?
I think you have put your finger on the reason for the over-abundance of chicken dishes: lamb and fish are too expensive for an all-you-can-eat buffet.
And for the record, I hate buffets!
P.S. Love the Yiddish terminology! lol
