This time we thought of Indian Samosa, It is cheap, delicious and a great way to try our new discovery which is “Bombay Grill”, Another Indian restaurant in Zagreb.
We had to limit the attendance to 8 people as the restaurant is small. People started arriving one after the other although the weather was rainy and cold. Around the table gathered the International crowd with – as usual – a strong Croatian presence. We had USA, Hungary and Spain this time in addition to the local participants.
If you don’t know Samosa is a fried pastry with savory filling. This time it was filled with potatoes, green peas and peanuts.
The surprising news was that the restaurant doesn’t serve coffee or tea or the famous Mango lassi. Drinks options were Sweet lassi which is a blend of yogurt, water and spices and tea with milk. Yes! they don’t’ serve tea but they serve tea with milk. It is mystery that needs to be resolved.
When it comes to the food, it was very delicious, mildly spicy and freshly cooked. For someone hungry two Samosas were not enough for sure so some had to order some extra main dishes.
When strangers come together the chat is usually about discovering each other’s country of origin and their career fields, basically what they do in life!
Programming, architect and researching were the main fields, and then comes the life experiences what you saw in other countries what you like about the city and what you don’t. The Croatian language and how to master it and is it essential to find your way around the city? Is having a business more relaxing than having a 9 – 5 job?
Many other enjoyable topics were discussed and that’s how we spent Saturday’s afternoon.
