A marriage between two cuisines is preferable to a marriage between two clones of Sylvester Stallone, a process that eventually results in a baby reared on raw egg and meat punching bags. Savour a simpler fusion with today's deal: for $25, you get $50 worth of tapas and drinks at Waterfalls Indian Tapas Bar & Grill in downtown. Waterfalls' innovative, extensive menu incorporates elements of traditional Indian fare, pizzas, and pastas into shareable tapas dishes. Indian-infused calamari ($9) graces tongues like a seductive world traveller, and the Waterfalls special mussels ($9), pampered in curry cream sauce, hush hunger more effectively than biting off a horse whisperer's finger. The drink menu includes more than 60 wines, 11 beers on tap, specialty martinis and mojitos, and even three variations of an Obama cocktail ($6.95).
- I finished the meal, which I savored and enjoyed every bite of by the way, with a pot of very good, hot chai tea, and a great desert recommended by the waiter, Rasmalai (a cottage cheese-like, sweet white desert with some chopped pistachios) – Bill S., Yelp
Waterfalls Indian Tapas Bar & Grill
Rassi Mahendran spent years in the hotel industry catering to his guests' whims—a skill for pleasing people that transferred to his restaurant's menu, which aims to satisfy every type of palate. A 2009 feature in dine.To described his cuisine as “an exotic flow of flavours fusing Indian ingredients with Mediterranean cuisines.” Tandoori chicken joins peppers, cheese, and housemade tomato sauce atop whole-wheat pizza crusts, and the same succulent morsels intertwine with fettuccine noodles in a curry cream sauce. Chefs simmer lamb and beef in zesty vindaloo sauce and marry potato and peas with a blend of spices. In the dining room, an eye-catching chandelier bathes tangerine walls with warm light as tables populate with fried masala potato balls and chicken pakoras that can be shared with a date or stealthily hidden from your shadow.
