Our region’s only Indian restaurant didn’t survive COVID. It now reopened with different owners. They are sweet, wonderful people. But they are from Nepal and Afghanistan, and the Nepalese side of the family is front of the house. The Afghani part cooks. I’m very interested in Afghan food but when Afghanis do Indian, it’s like me cooking Mexican. It all tastes like I’d rather have some borscht.
They should have totally opened an Afghan restaurant. We are a college town. People would definitely go to a more exotic place.
I’ll still go to the restaurant because Afghan Indian is better than no Indian.
