I need to check Verandah out the next time I'm bicycling through Hampden.

 

Sounds yummy.

Over the past several years, Hampden has cemented its position as one of the food-friendliest neighborhoods in Baltimore. It's no surprise, then, to discover that behind one of the bright facades on a particularly charming stretch of 36th Street, a small crew is cooking some fantastic Indian street food.

 

The restaurant is called The Verandah and it is, sadly, open only for lunch. But between the food's bright flavors and the staff's welcoming attitude, oh what a lunch it is.

Try ordering Chicken Vindaloo sometime but order it with a "T" instead of a "V"......Tindaloo. You'll have the same experience Homer Simpson had when he ate the the Merciless Pepper of Quetzalacatenango.

I eat a lot of Indian food here in the UK, I have been to India a couple of times and enjoyed it there (it is quite different). I make an Indian dinner at least once a week, my personal favourite is Mutton Rogan Josh. Tindaloo I believe is a British invention, the hottest curry is a Phal, it is too much even for me and I like it hot.

There is a lots of Indian food that you will like to Hop on. Hyderabad chicken biryani is also awesome with great flavors. You can also give it try to Thai food(http://www.yellowpag...ese-inc-4618031)  that also use lots of spices and have variety of flavors in a single dish. Thai dishes is cooked using lots of spices like Indian dishes.

It is with great pleasure that we take this opportunity to invite you to attend Baltimore’s Annual Rathayatra Parade and Festival of India on Sunday, May 29th 2016. The Parade begins at 12:00pm at the corner of Key Highway and Light Street behind the Science Center at the Inner Harbor, continuing up Light Street and ending at McKeldin Square on the corner of Pratt and Light Streets for the opening ceremonies of the Festival of India starting at 2pm.

 

 

The last twelve years of festivals were a grand success, drawing not only thousands of local Maryland participants, but people from as far as New York, Pennsylvania, Virginia, North Carolina and even Florida. Local television stations and newspapers also covered the event. Over 2,500 plates of free vegetarian food were distributed to participants and passersby each year
