Essence of India is the BEST! Bar naan (get it?) bar none.
Any who, on my never ending trip to Miami, I made plenty of stops along the East coast, including a pit stop in Tallahassee to see my king for his birthday.
Staying there for a few days, I had to make my way to one of the best restaurants in the world!
Now hear me out, for eight dollars you get a salad, a bowl of lentil soup, an entree (that could easily feed two), unlimited naan and a dessert of the day.
At Essence of India, food is always delicious, and I probably eat four pieces of naan by myself (seriously it's crazy good!). I ordered the Palaki Tofu. I wish it were a little more spicy but nonetheless awesome. My friends ordered curried and makani fish, and everyone left full and satisfied.
The desserts are hit or miss, and this day it was a vanilla custard (not my favorite), but I ordered a glass mango lassi as my sweet dessert ending to a fairytale meal.
Lunch specials last from 11a-2:30p, but get there before 1:45p if you really want to get the best out of your 8 dollars. I did tell you it's eight dollars right!? Ok good!
