While April has been to Clay Pit a few times in the past, Hedgie and Buttercup have never had the pleasure, and Teji's had been highly recommended, so they convinced her that it would be a good idea to have Indian food for lunch and dinner before her long tour started.
April had visited the new location of Teji's on Guadelupe once before, but hadn't tried the original. She met some friends there for lunch, and decided to try some stuffed fried Anahaim peppers, which were REALLY spicy (she ended up taking most of them home to eat with vegan sour cream). The peppers looked suspiciously like fried mice, which made Hedgie and Buttercup very worried.
Baigan Bharta has always been a favorite for April's, but the Stuffed Baigan ("Baby eggplant stuffed with Indian spices in thick tomato & onion gravy") looked amazing - and didn't disappoint!
One can never have enough Indian food, so April took the hedgehogs to have dinner with a friend at Clay Pit. One great thing about Clay Pit is that all of the vegan options are clearly marked on the menu.
April and her dining companion started out with some veggie samosas and a batata cham (potato patty) that were really delicious - crispy on the outside, savory smooth on the inside, with just the right amount of spice.
For a main dish, April tried something a little different - Vegetable Ayam ("garden fresh vegetables prepared with fresh garlic & herbs in delicious yellow goan curry.")
The Vegetable Ayam is definitely a new favorite!
