Curries got their name from the colloquialism "to curry favor," which means flattering somebody with love letters written with spices. Spice it up with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of Indian dinner fare and a dessert (up to a $6.50 value) at Shalom Bombay (up to a $51.50 total value). This deal also includes a three-month Kosher Advantage membership, which is valid at more than 250 kosher markets and restaurants.
Under the observation of a Mashgiach who is onsite at all times, the chefs of Shalom Bombay prepare an extensive and eclectic menu of authentic, glatt kosher Indian fare. Succulent cubes of beef cook to a tender finish in cashew paste and mild spices in the beef korma ($19.95), and portions of spiced lamb vindaloo ($24.95), just like a 1950s prom date, woo the senses on a dance floor of freshly baked garlic naan ($5.50). Celebrate the tastes of tandoori chicken ($14.95), marinated in parve sour cream and roasted in a clay oven or sift through the delicate flavors of bhinda masala ($13.95), a combo of okra, onions, and tomatoes mingling in olive oil. Patrons can conclude dinner feasts with any selection from a menu of desserts, including carrot pudding or house-made Italian gelato.
Customers also get a three-month Kosher Advantage membership, saving them up to 15% at over 250 of kosher butchers, markets, and restaurants. See the full list of participants here.
Shalom Bombay operates under the strict supervision of The Orthodox Union, meaning compliance with kosher dietary laws, such as nixing milk and butter for olive oil, and replacing meat from tofu birds with the vine-ripened alternative. This approach has earned Shalom Bombay a unique following, including celebs such as Rosie O'Donnell, Matisyahu, and Senator Menendez. Bombay's more than 20 vegetarian entrées have also helped earn the 50-seat eatery positive reviews from both The New York Times and The Jewish Voice.
Four-foot flames warm the faces of Bombay chefs as they fuse beef and lamb with sumptuous accents of ginger, onion, and fenugreek. While fresh naan and cashew accented chicken bake in Shalom's clay tandoor oven, a fully stocked bar serves up unique beers such as India-imported '1947'––a nod to the year of India's independence, and universally agreed to be the best year for salt water taffy.
