Finally Tried Zaffron Kitchen!

Zaffron Kitchen has been one of those places that I seem to always want to check out but somehow never did. Eons later, I finally did after walking by it for the umpteenth time and deciding to return for it the next day. Boys and girls, procrastination is.....never mind, I tell you later. Moohahaha.
Opt for the Tandoori Mixed Grill ($28)- a platter perfect for sharing between two. Consisting of chicken tikka, malai tikka, fish tikka and seekh mutton kebab, this plate offers variety from the tandoor. The meats were generally nicely grilled and juicy. Dab a little mint sauce for extra flavour.

I also tried the Palak Paneer ($11.50) which also turned out to be good. Firm Indian cottage cheese with the texture akin to firm tau kwa was smothered in a creamy spinach sauce gently accented with a bit of ginger. I gladly mopped up the sauce with the naan.

Speaking of which, the Garlic Naan ($4) was excellent! Hot, fluffy and chewy, it was a delight to tear apart and dip into sauces/gravies. The Basmati Briyani Rice ($4.50) had a delicate flavour and had hardly much oil. Certainly good for the health-conscious with lighter palate. 

I should return to try their curries and spicy dishes. Chants "Moost not procrastinate. Moost not procrastinate."
