There are a few great places to grab other ethnic food choices in town, but sometimes eatingsomething different also means spending more of your paycheck.
Ever get a craving for Indian food but don’t want to break the bank? Check out Taj Mahal in Korea in Sinmae!
The Taj Mahal opened last fall and offers all your favorites: plenty of chicken, lamb, and pork curries; garlic, honey, and plain naan; and sohan papdi and gulab jamun, traditional Indian desserts. Taj Mahal has an extensive menu with tons of choices. They even have a special lunch set menu on weekdays from 11:30~3:30!
Prices run in the 9,900 won ~ 14,000 won range. My personal favorite is the chicken tikkamasala with garlic naan. If you’re curious about the dessert, I recommend trying the sohan papdi with ice cream. Sohan papdi is made from a variety of nuts and is a mildly sweet, fibrous snack.
It was a little drier than I anticipated, though I enjoyed it. Next time, I will definitely try it with the ice cream offering.
