I never had a Gateway to India beer before and liked it. I'm not a beer connoisseur and beer to me is either good and refreshing or flat and sucky ... or free in which case it's always outstanding. This was good. Beer for me also means I'm off. I'm done. Can't call me to go to work. It's almost a statement of implied relaxation. So sometimes even bad beer is good.
Our papadam was pretty standard and served with a Tamarind dipping sauce along with a chopped onion relish. The onion had a nice bite to it and the Tamarind had the standard sweet, astringent, tang.

This dish was excellent. The heat was part of the dish, not the main attraction. It was a delicious earthy mix of mushrooms, I think there were Shitake as well, and peas in a nice rich mushroom sauce. My buddy's chicken, he said, was noteworthy as well so returning to this place was definitely discussed and if you're so inclined to bring a carnivore they won't be disappointed either. I just wish the vegan items were marked a bit better and my foodal requests were taken a bit more seriously. Actually, I wish the world was vegan but that's another story.
