It's always fun to eat at Streets Of India in Encino, especially in the late evening, when the restaurant is nearly empty and quite cozy. I dined there with two friends recently and we had quite the feast. We ordered a lovely variety of dishes, which ranged from sweet to spicy.
We started out the meal with Samosas ($4).
The samosas were very tasty, as usual. The outside was perfectly fried and crispy, while the inside was filled with a delectable potato concoction. The seasonings were fantastic.
Next, we had the Panipuri ($4).
Next, we had the Vada Pav ($4).
Next, we had the Gobi Manchurian ($9).
Next, we had some unknown vegetable curry, which was given to us in place of our order of Uttapam. I am not sure why we received this instead, but I am assuming the cashier either made a mistake or they were out of the Uttapam.
Lastly, we had the Vegan Chicken Korma ($9).
Overall, I really enjoyed the meal. Everything was flavorful and perfectly spiced. I liked that there was a balance of sweetness and spiciness, so my mouth did not feel an intense heat after eating. The total of the meal was under $20 with our $25 restaurant.com gift certificate. I cannot wait to dine here again.
