This is post 2 in my mini series of Meals with Friends. If you want to read the first one then feel free to go here.
The hubs and I heard about Badmaash a LONG time ago. We’ve been wanting to come since then, but timing would never work out or we weren’t feeling Indian.
When a friend hit me up to go to Badmaash specifically we knew this was the perfect time to make the leap and go for it. Badmaash is Indian with a modern twist. The restaurant is small, but well designed.
It was pretty warm in there when we went, but we had food and a friend so we were content.
We started with both types of samosas-butter chicken and veggie. They were known for the butter chicken and it was the favorite of the two, but I think it would be impossible to go wrong with either.
One is fried dough with curried chicken stuffed in it and the other is stuffed with spice filled vegetables-that’s winning in my book.
We also got the tandoor chicken which came with these beautiful pickled radishes and onions. The chicken was charred to perfection-savory and juicy.
We also got the butter chicken curry and naan to go with it. It was slightly sweet, savory, and had a lot warming spices. The naan was fresh and hot and I love that slight burnt taste too 🙂
Even though all the desserts were enticing we had dessert planned prior to this and decided to go to SK Donuts and try their new Creme Brûlée donut.
Obviously we had to get some of our usual favorite as well…
If you live in SoCal have you tried Badmaash? What did you think??
