What I ate:
"PP" and I shared the following ...
1. Papri Chat (3.95 USD): Flour crisps and spiced potatoes, served with a variety of chutneys. I liked the refined presentation of this popular street snack. The flavors were on point - sweet and tangy tamarind, cool and refreshing coriander. I recommend this starter. Spicy, too!
Parking: Park at any of the ramps located in Old Pasadena - the first 90 minutes are free. The closest one to Akbar is the ramp on Raymond, across the street from Memorial Park. It's about a block or two away.
The Bill: About 16 USD.
My Rating: star out of four stars (satisfactory to good). Open Sunday to Thursday, 11:30 AM to 10 PM, and on Friday and Saturday, 11:30 AM to 11 PM. Visa, AmEx, MC, and Discover accepted. www.akbarcuisineofindia.com
Last Word: To answer my own question, it was decent.
Oh, and afterwards, "PP" and I stumbled upon a new chocolate & coffee shop at Raymond and Green called Amara. It opened a couple of weeks ago.
Here are a couple of photos I took:
"PP" tried the latte (3 USD) while I had a shot of espresso with dulce de leche - Amara's Cafe (3.15 USD). Not bad!
The interior was decorated nicely. Amara herself (in the photo above) talked with us about some new equipment she just got: a Japanese cold coffee extractor! It sounded cool. Go ahead and give Amara a try!
