For ex Sri Lanka Curry House fans

This may be old news (sorry if so) but a friend alerted me to the fact that
the lady (the owner-chef's wife I guess) who used to be at the Sri lanka Curry House (much missed) is now doing her stuff Mondays (only) at the Highland Grill.
Am going to check it out in a couple of weeks when I am next in town on a Monday.

  1. That would be Heather. And she does know her food!

    1. Would love to hear from some folks who have been. Thanks

        We went tonight. Butter chicken curry with curried potato fries, dhal, & collard greens stirred with coconut. Served with papadums; a sweet potato chutney & a cilantro-habanero sambol for $14.95. Delicious & filling-I so miss that place! For dessert she served a scoop of Izzy's vanilla ice cream with a coconut syrup sauce (reminiscent of maple syrup, actually)-topped with chili spiced walnuts. Perfect accompaniment to the dinner, & not too heavy (unlike my son's root beer float-this is the Highland Grill after all!)

        Two thumbs up...

          Heather (aka the Curry Diva) is hosting an Indonesian Feast at the Edina Grill on Wed November 10th. A family style Indonesian curry meal with wine pairings for $55.
          Sounds great too!

            Great to hear that it was good...being a Sri Lankan and having just returned from Sri Lanka after 3 weeks of great food I'm craving some now!! I did have couple of questions....

            1. Was it a set menu - as in, did you only have 1 or maybe 2 choices?
            2. What about the spice level - when I eat Sri Lankan, I like to sweat so I hope it's not watered down...

            Thanks in advance.

              Mmmm...Indonesian feast!

              It was a set menu with the one entree, which I believe changes from Monday to Monday. The chutney & the sambol were served on the side. The server instructed us to add small amounts to the dish, tasting for spiciness. It was spicy, but not too spicy, & Heather Jansz was circulating through the restaurant throughout our meal, so you might be able to request more spice.

                Thanks for the info. I will check it out.
