We stay at the same hotel in Mountain View for many of the art shows we do on the San Francisco peninsula. We stayed there last week for the San Carlos show, and we planned on eating at a little Vietnamese restaurant that I thought I had noticed across the street the last time we were there. We walked over from the hotel, and the Vietnamese restaurant turned out to be an Indian place. Well, my mouth was ready for hot and spicy, so I was pretty disappointed. The Indian place had fluorescent ceiling lights, and not much ambiance. But then I saw that it was vegetarian, and I got excited again. We decided to try it out, and it was so great I still can't believe it. It was a Saturday night, and the Indians were out in force, in their glorious native garb. 75% of the patrons were Indian. The food was absolutely delicious, the best Indian food I have ever eaten, and we still don't have a clue what we ordered.
We will be staying at the same place for the Menlo Park show this weekend, so you know where we will be dining. I will remember the name of the place to post next week.
Oh yeah, and dinner for the two of us was $17.00 before the tip!
