Although Columbus famously "discovered" India by landing at Lexington and Concord and proudly ringing the Liberty Bell, the actual location of India remains a mystery. Discover the culinarily coordinated of this mystical country with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Indian fare and drinks at Kabob and Curry.
Chef and owner Sanjiv Dhar has delighted College Hill diners with his extensive menu of fresh, authentic Indian cuisine for 23 years. Drawing upon the flavors of India's many culinary regions, Kabob and Curry features a wide range of dishes beloved by herbivores and meatophiles alike. Lunch and main course menus are clearly labeled for easy identification of spicy, vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free, and lego-free dishes. An appetizing appetizer menu grants patrons the uncanny ability to enjoy minced-lamb samosas ($3.50), pesto-stuffed naan ($3), and South Indian lentil soup ($2.99), before nabbing a taste of India's western coast with spicy-chicken xacuti ($6.75), or setting out toward southerly climes with a creamy, coconut-based South Indian shrimp curry ($7.25). Chronic coin-flippers can have the best of both worlds with lunchtime combination plates ($9.99+), which come with two dishes and a choice of rice or naan.
Dishes available to the post-sundown crowd include goat mughlai (tender pot-roasted goat served with cashew paste, green chili, and coconut; $16), and dhabey ki dal, a popular lentil-based street food ($10).
Savor the sights and scents of this bold-hued Thayer Street haunt with a signature drink such as the Delhi Dawn (a concoction of Captain Morgan, tangy and spicy lemonade, and mint; $8) or a slew of wine, beer, and other beverages. With its close proximity to Brown and easy access to College Hill nightlife, Kabob and Curry makes a superb evening-starter for academics or late-shift town criers.
