East is East

East is East on Main. M planned the night for only L but Winw and I ended up joining. It was the first time I've ever been here but heard great things about it prior. They serve Silk Road cuisine.

They have a lounge there and also live music playing on the stage. Great ambiance!

The ceiling. It's very beautiful!

Dinner started off with a little chai tea sample.

Most of us decided to go with East is East's signature tasting menu: the Chai Feast. It comes with soup, salad, boulani, kefir naan, garlic pickle, Afghan and basmati rice. You can then choose any the main dishes, two at a time - it's all you can eat!

 Mystic Soup: Lemongrass, green curry, ginger and mushrooms in coconut milk. I loved this one.

 Beet Salad: Steamed beets, sour cherries with cumin w/ balsamic vinaigrette

Lamb Kebab: Perfectly spiced and grilled chunks of lamb in a savoury yogurt, black cardamom and bay leaf curry (dairy)

Afghan and basmati rice and naan.

Mango Butternut Squash: Butternut squash and mango cooked with coconut milk, ginger, nutmeg, cinnamon and curry leaves (vegan)

You can request more naan if you want. They are sooo delicious! We absolutely had to!

Dinner was delicious and I was so stuffed after. Great deal at only $25! I'd definitely go back again!
