Taste of India, Riva Del Garda, Italy

Italians aren't really big on foreign food--or at least they aren't in this area of northern Italy where I was staying. I tried Indian food here last year, made by Indians, I might add, and it was not good. So, when my Italian friend mentioned that he knew where to get good Indian food 20 minutes away, I was all for it.

Taste of India is located in the bustling beach town of Riva Del Garda in a little strip mall. The funny thing about this place is that it serves Indian food and pizza. Why? Because, apparently, just Indian food doesn't cut it in Italy. This place would fail without offering patrons pizza as well, so they obliged.

Inside, the restaurant is quite large with orange and black tablecloths. We started with some delicious pappadums and chutneys. An order of fried samosas filled with veggies took the hunger away--salty, but good.

For my meal, I ordered the Vegetable Kadai made with carrots, green beans, cauliflower, and broccoli in a rich sauce. It was very good and spicy--just how I like it!

I also got an order of garlic naan that was out of this world.

All the while we drank a great local white wine and gazed at the mountains just outside the window--so picturesque.

I'm so glad to have discovered good Indian food in this area! There are lots of vegan options too! Highly recommended.
