Saffron Indian Cuisine
7724 West Sand Lake Rd.
I already loved this place before we walked in because they were the only restaurant open on Thanksgiving day outside of Disney World. Joe wasn’t too thrilled with the aspect of eating inside an Indian restaurant so we ordered our lunch combos to go. But when we arrived to pick up our food, Joe didn’t want to bring it back to our hotel room because the Indian food smell would linger there. So we ended up eating at the only outdoor table we could find in this shopping plaza in front of a Panera which was closed. I apologize to the countless number of drivers who thought Panera was open cuz we were sitting out front, parked in front of Panera and then walked up to the door only to find it closed.
There were options for super spicy so I got a super spicy chicken tikka masala. It was creamy and delicious! When Joe took a bite, he choked on how spicy it was. He then drank all of our water….But he did agree that this was really yummy. The rice was fluffy and hot.
My chicken tikka masala was so good that I poured my rice into the plastic bowl to insure that I could soak up every last bit of the sauce. Joe’s lamb vindaloo was a bit tougher to chew and it was a different type of spicy, more like a smokey hot spicy.
This is a sweet carrot pudding desert. It’s made with little shredded pieces of carrot, sweet milk, cream, sugar with little slivers of almonds. It was soooooooo creamy and delicious.
