I had an interview in Milpitas late this afternoon (5pm). As I was getting ready to go, flower_cat
phoned and told me about a Really Good Indian Restaurant near the Consonance hotel (also in Milpitas). Needless to say, my curiosity was piqued.
I didn't get out of the interview till after 7pm, and since I hadn't eaten since the afternoon, I decided getting food was A Really Good Idea. I then set out to find this place. flower_cat
said this place was "the coffee shop attached to the Super 8 on the other side of the highway." I called her when I couldn't find it after 15 minutes; she gave me the name of the place ("Bombay Cafe and Curry"). I spent half an hour driving around, looking for a Super 8 in Milpitas. I then pulled in at a shopping center with pay phones that had phone books.
It turns out there are no Super 8 motels in Milpitas, but there is
a Bombay Cafe and Curry. It was on "Valley Way." Next, I had to find "Valley Way" with no map. After tooling around for five minutes of driving down side roads, I found Valley Way off Abbott Avenue. The restaurant is attached to the Best Western
motel. I ordered a dish with paneer in a tomato cream sauce, garlic naan, and pilau. The pilau was nice -- fluffy, flavorful, but not overpowering. The paneer and sauce were gently spiced (by my
standards, anyway). The garlic naan kicked ass; it was really
Perhaps the best features of this place, though, were it's really close to the hotel, and it was uncrowded (IMHO largely because of its hidden location), making it a great place to shlep to when folks need to rush dinner at a filk con. I'm not sure whether it's big enough to hold enough of us for a post-con dinner; I need to check it out again when my head isn't pounding from lack of sleep and too long between feedings.
