i actually had a lovely meal (lamb tikka, gobi aloo) at bollywood bistro, a swankish, newish indian caff in makati. unfortunately, no photos 'cept one of the very nice "mango mafia" dessert: pannacotta with mango, pistachios, and rosewater.
overall food was good--not the best indian i've had, but certainly far from the worst; for some reason it tasted healthier--less oil, and cleaner (probably because it's not that spicy, so the flavours aren't as complex). the decor is tasteful, although a little like a teenage girl's idea of "ethnic", and there's a casual, friendly vibe, efficient service and one of the nicest hosts i've come across anywhere, with indian movies on a flat screen tv and live entertainment at night (geets, gazals & qualies, anyone?).
anyway, i was sort of engrossed in the film playing, which was bombastic (typical), but set mostly in snow (er, atypical). from what i remember it's mainly about an indian guy in the russian army who is fighting in a civil war, and at the same time falling in love with a young russian peasant girl. er, indian country girl. in russia. hip deep in snow. okay, see why i was preoccupied?
