Bangla Deli

My wife brought a couple of dishes by my work last month as a surprise and a treat and theywere both. She had been reminded by a friend to stop by the old Deli on Simonton at Truman. The facade remains the same as ever, more or less.

It used to be a fairly undistinguished greasy spoon, the food was okay prices were reasonable and service was rapid. They had a devoted following among certain locals but after a very long run I guess exhaustion set in and they closed. They have been reopened by a new owner who still has the original café menu augmented by a couple of regular simple but delicious Indian dishes.

Not being Hindu I permitted myself a beef curry which hit the spot, to go unfortunately I had to get back to work. I should have enjoyed taking a table and people watching in air conditioned comfort.

I am looking forward to seeing what the vegetable curry tastes like and exploring as many of their specials as they care to put on the growing menu.
