Which has nothing whatsoever to do with the arrival in Key West Police Dispatch of a wife bearing gifts. It turns out she had gone downtown with some girlfriends and she trailed Kathy to Bangla Deli on Simonton at Truman where they both checked out the Indian food. I'm buggered if I know what they are called but the top one was a spicy vegetarian breakfast dish with some delicious chewy and crispy flat bread. The lower picture shows a beef dish with basmati rice and the usual naan type flatbread.
They were ten bucks each and very much worth it. My wife says the deli is currently offering just a few Indian dishes at a time but they want to have an Indian restaurant running in November. Roll on, I say!
Dispatch isn't the ideal setting for dinner but the callers were considerate and we got twenty minutes of peace and quiet. The Bangla Deli is where the old Deli used to be and I think the transformation promises well in a town that sorely needs Indian food. I have heard rumors too that badboy burrito may be adding Vietnamese food to our city's choices. Things seem to be looking up all round with Amigos Cal-Mex doing well. You can never have too much affordable ethnic food at the end of the road.
