A Quick Trip to Agra, Without Leaving Home

This entry is part of a series, Restaurants»

Recently my father-in-law was in town on a mission to single-handedly rescue the central Texas economy doing a little window-shopping and foraging. Since he’s retired now he can do pretty much as he pleases so long as it’s at the explicit direction of his wife. He’s been […]
