If two heads are better than one, then two cuisine-noggins fused into one restaurant-body are better than one. Support admixed eateries and your local thesaurus with today’s Groupon: for $10, you’ll get $25 worth of delicious Indian-French fusion fare and delightful baked goods at IndAroma, an epicurean hybrid that helps you expand your cultural palate as if it were a balloon stretched over the mouth of a fire hydrant.
The cozy, WiFi-ed space is ideal for feasting on made-from-scratch fare, including chaats, kati rolls, sandwiches, and wraps. Try the alu tikki burger, a Mumbai special that sauces up a veggie cutlet in tangy mint ($5.75). Potato lovers will eye the spicy pav bhaji, a bun bursting with spicy spuds and veggies that goes above and beyond the traditional twice-baked ($5.75).
Satisfy a sweet tooth with a selection of fresh baked goods. More than just Indian eatery, IndAroma also specializes in sugary snacks including puffed pastries, stuffed croissant, apple danishes, and samosas. Cake, the celebratory dessert of choice, is also represented in all incarnations: fruity (mango, pineapple, strawberry), decadent (german chocolate, chocolate truffle), mini (cupcakes), and pounded (pound).
The family-operated shop (30-year food-biz veteran Yogesh Handa spearheads the operation, and son Abhishek Handa and son-in-law Rahul Marwaha manage marketing) opened earlier this year with the aim to create a creative, comfortable space, hence its firm No Dragons policy. IndAroma is open Monday through Saturday, 8 a.m. to 10 p.m., and Sunday, 9 a.m. to 10 p.m.
- I just tried this joint and what a find. I tried their Chicken burger. Awesome. what a combination of sauces. Also their cakes are great. My office mates luved it. – stevebr73, Going Out Guide
- When I've eaten more, probably four stars! The puffs: lamb, paneer, chicken tikka, are all splendid with masala chai. – robinsok1, Going Out Guide
Delicious baked goods are the most common bait utilized in fiendish traps. Here’s a list of warning signs to make sure that cupcake is cupsafe:
If your cupcake screams with the voice of a man: It is safe to consume. This cupcake is actually an evil prince, most likely imprisoned by a dryad as punishment for denying the dryad a carriage ride when she was in the guise of an old crone. End its misery, but chew carefully, there is a gold coin in the middle that will duplicate itself a hundredfold if left overnight in a bowl of saltwater.
If your brownie is still warm, and smells strongly of cocoa: Do not consume. This brownie is exuding heat isotopes due a series of quantum folds within, most likely placed there by a science genie. Biting into it could cause the so-called “empty space” between your electrons and atomic nuclei to balloon with dangerous Reverse Matter, causing you to rapidly de-age into infancy, and the spontaneous de-cancellation of the show Dinosaurs.
If your croissant contains a curved, glinting blade inscribed with the Runes of Zortania: Do not consume. Your father did not prepare you for this mission. Forget you saw it, and stay away from that strange, yet familiar, old woman in the cave and her crackpot tales of heroism and destiny.
