Saturday Smorgasbord at Reba’s

My mom grew up in a large farm family (seven girls, one boy, one bathroom) and all of them learned to cook. So one of the first things you can expect when the Clan gathers for a major event is a big meal, somewhere. Aunt Reba got tagged this time…

We were only a few […]

Does Kung Fu Buffet Lives Up to Its Name? My Sample Says…

This entry is part of a series, Restaurants»

Most of us have an image of what Kung Fu means. Unfortunately, in the States it usually comes from things like the TV show, or Bruce Lee movies, or maybe kids breaking things with their feet and hands. Yes, martial arts is the top response that […]

Chola Indian Restaurant: A Good Indian Eatery Gets Better

This entry is part of a series, Restaurants»

I enjoy good Indian food. Like many Americans who appreciate this great ethnic cuisine, I only had experience with the food here in the States. Authenticity is tough to judge without visiting the motherland, of course, and I have been fortunate to go “over there” to […]

So I’m lucky that I have a great Indian buffet […]

Gandhi’s Birthday Feast

Today is Gandhi’s Birthday, a major holiday in India. He is revered as the father of modern India, now 60+ years ago. A man of strong will and gentle ways, he led the (mostly) nonviolent ejection of the British from their largest colony, and was featured on the cover of Time magazine three times. He […]

Working Hard for You: Buffet Grazing in Hyderabad

There are so many good things to eat in India that I’m glad my hotel serves several buffets each day. It doesn’t matter to me that they feel obliged to serve Western and Far Eastern style dishes to accommodate the range of their visitors. I wave hi as I go by the maitre d’hotel (who […]
