Origin India

My fiance couldn't stop talking about how much he missed yellow curry for days!  So he surprised me in bringing me to the Indian restaurant, Origin India across from the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino.  It is a very simple and modern looking restaurant thats nice to have a quiet or romantic dinner.

Masala Chai - This spiced tea was milky!  I'm glad I chose this than an alcoholic beverage because I'd rather drink milky teas or coffees:
Homemade paneer cheese tikka - stuffed with apricots and raisins, marinated in coriander and basil glazed in Tandoor, and pickled red cabbage.  If you're a cheese lover, try this appetizer!  This fluffy looking paneer will crumble in your mouth:
Punjabi Kadhi - Punjabi gram flour and veggie dumplings in yogurt sauce with coriander seeds, chili, cumin, and asafoetida (spice).  If you're just thinking that yogurt sauce = Yoplait, you're not close... One way of making yogurt sauce is mixing plain yogurt, tahini paste, garlic, lemon juice, and salt & pepper, sounds more tasty right?
The veggie dumplings and sauce filled me up!  I didn't expect that at all:
Even though my fiance was craving yellow curry, he was curious to try Sag Aloo -  a simple mix of curried spinach with potatoes.  It looks too dark in this pic, see it in person instead ha!  He didn't regret trying this entree:
Basmati rice - grown in the foothills of the Himalayan mountains.  I'm fond of this rice!  I should eat this at home too other than Jasmine or Calrose rice:

Stockholm Trip '17

Over a month ago, my husband and I embarked on our first trip to Europe!!! We were there for a couple weeks and spent our time exploring the capital cities of Norway, Denmark, and Sweden.  The two things I found most captivating was the art, especially the architecture, and the food!  Our trip started in Oslo, Norway and Copenhagen, Denmark (check out the links at the end of the post for more details) and ended our Euro trip in Stockholm, Sweden: AB CafĂ© Never in my whole life did I eat pastries and drink coffee every morning until I arrived in Europe! A lot of pastries I had were hearty which left me wanting to have at least one daily.  In the neighborhood near where we were staying at was  AB CafĂ© .  This is a small, cozy cafe where you can have a small bite to eat and drink before you start your day.  Pictured below is their Key Lime Sandwich, latte, and a bullar (sweet bun).  It was a nice fika !
