A Taste of India
Recently I went to the Taste of India restaurant on 16th Street and Bell. The outside is located in a normal looking strip mall which interestingly also included an Indian/British grocery, a Thai restaurant, and a Greek restaurant. Inside is a totally different world of sounds, sights, and smells. There was traditional Indian music and décor. A picture of the Taj Mahal covered the back wall. The owner/server was Indian but spoke
with a British accent. I learned that this is not uncommon due to the long British occupation of India. There appeared to be many Indian customers. This restaurant seamed to be a place of familiarity for them. The menu mainly consisted of Indian foods but there seamed to be a blend of American culture. There was a variety of sodas to choose from and you could order fish and chips for the less venturous.
