Chicken Tandoori + Dal Makhani + Naan
at Bombay Brau
-Songdo, Yeonsu, Incheon, Republic of Korea-
In Incheon. Here to supervise a book fair at CI, my first one at this school (previously in 2019, before I came on board). Anticipated to be our biggest event of the season, and given the long distance home, I will be staying in a hotel for the duration, a full fledged duty travel (see also 12.104 Gonghwachun Jjajang Myeon).
CI Winter Book Fair (Day 1)
- Day 0 (13.334 Roasted Lobster – Special)
- Day 1 (13.335 Chicken Tandoori + Dal Makhani + Naan)
- Day 2 (13.336 Gimbap Gift Set)
- Day 3 (13.337 Veggie Sweet Potato Hamburger Steak)
The 2.2-km route from the hotel to the school took 6 minutes by car (probably would’ve been quicker on bike). By comparison, the 58-km route from home would’ve taken around 1.5 hours.
Bombay Brau is an Indian restaurant chain. The menu is fairly standard, mostly curries, along with a a few tandoori dishes, plus naan and biryani.
I was too tired to dine in – just sitting there waiting for the food was painful – so I got the food to go and ate it in my hotel room, mostly on the bed.
The food was quite good. The chicken was very tender, nicely seasoned, though a bit short on smoky tandoori flavor. The naan was beautifully chewy and tasty, but again kinda lacking in char. The curry was somewhat boring per se but worked as a kind of sauce for the chicken and bread. Best Indian meal in ages (see for comparison 12.184 Chicken Tandoori).
