Occasionally need a London Sizzler “fix” and made it back this weekend. It’s probably been a year since I’ve been.
I love their papadum with 2 sauces and onions, all of which is $1.99. The green sauce is a spicy cilantro sauce and the darker sauce is a sweet sauce. The papadum is so flavorful, but with that green sauce it’s wonderful.
Spicy Indian food is best with cold beer, and I ordered a Kingfisher but they were out and the server said she heard they may quit producing it???! [Edited to add: this is a bad rumor. According to Google, Kingfisher has over 35% of the Indian market and is expanding] Anyway, she recommended Taj Mahal and it was cold and adequate for the job.
For a second app, the table ordered the Special Mogo dish, which is fried and sauced yucca with jalapenos. Excellent.
For mains, there was shrimp curry and chicken tikka masala (the national dish of England for good reason) with garlic bullet naan.
Normally I would add their superior version of saag paneer and some raita to cool things off, but as it is, most of this came home. Apparently, this is a favorite stop for Houston’s celeb chef Chris Shepherd.
London Sizzler is in the same center as Himalaya which has a very different menu and I’m so glad for both of them. One of these days I’ll try some of the other stores and restaurants in the center, of which there are many in this Mahatma Gandhi District (even the street signs say this now). Shiv Sagar is a veg restaurant next to London Sizzler, and on the other side is a sweets shop.
