The third time really was the charm. After a couple frustrating lack of parking episodes, I almost missed again today due to a really bad sinus headache, I finally found myself at the Friday International Cafe event on UCSD campus (where I work not too far from).
today was in honor of India, served up was Chicken Tikka Masala, rice,
Chaat Salad and Suji Halwa dessert. All for five-bucks. The
chicken was super tender and the sauce although mainly tomato based had a
definite curry flavor. The dessert was like a sweet polenta with
raisins, yum. The salad of chickpeas and fresh bell peppers was nice
I also ran into local uber Japanese blogger Mrs. Shinobii where
I first learned of this weekly meal bargain on campus on her blog. (It
was nice to meet you and your friend Shinobu-san!) Chatting up with a
Mathematics visiting scholar from Belgium and few other smart people at our table was a bit intimidating at first, but it all turned out
a nice relaxing afternoon.
Next week, South Africa!
