Tonight I Dined: Ritu's Spice Utsav

While in Manchester, NH I dined at Ritu's Spice Utsav. The restaurant was located in a little strip mall, and it would be easy to miss--but don't. It was truly an excellent meal in cute space with wonderful service.

Also, unlike many other Indian vegetarian restaurants, Ritu's clearly labels their vegan dishes. Not having to ask any questions of the waitstaff makes this vegan very happy.

Ritu's had an abundance of options, it was so difficult to decide what to order because everything looked so appetizing. I opted for an Indo-Chinese dish, Gobi Manchurian. It is fried cauliflower tossed in a  chili garlic sauce. If you've never had this dish, it sounds like nothing special--but you would be wrong! Gobi Manchurian is a fusion of flavors and textures, and even though it's not trying to be anything else, it is similar to (but way better than any) "cauliflower wing" out there.
