Silicon Limey struggles to find chicken tikka masala

IT, over at his bog, complains that it’s hard to find good Indian nosh in San Francisco. It’s not, you know IT, it really isn’t.

There are plenty of places in SF where you can nosh out on your fave stuff – there’s two places just opposite the Hilton that are half decent.

However, you just cannot compare this with Ole Bengaluru. My bananas in the garden are no doubt growing nicely, but Nandini’s, just down the road from our office, serves up fab food at a cost you cannot imagine. Unfortunately, this is a “family restaurant” so you can’t get a beer.

For that go to the now famous 100 Feet Road, and to the Nandini Palace, where things get much spicier as you climb to the third floor.  The Nandini Palace is where 100 Feet Road bends on the right before you get anywhere near TGI Friday and the Leela Palace. Nandini seems to have a big franchise on milk (dudh) in Bangalore too.
