100 Followers Milestone/ Philly Restaurant Week Recap!!

You like me! You really, really like me!

This morning I received notification that this blog has reached 100 followers! I know this is nowhere near what some bloggers have but it is a victory none-the less. This little blog has come a long way with much more to go!

In other news, I’ve been wanting to try Indian food for a very long time. I was finally able to convince my bestie to try something different this time around for Restaurant Week. We decided to check out a place called Indeblue, an upscale Indian restaurant in downtown Philadelphia.

We didn’t make reservations so we seated ourselves at the bar but when there was an available spot, our waiter kindly allowed us to relocate. The decor is nice, however it is a bit of a squeeze.

Also, just a heads up. Participating restaurants usually offer 3 Pre-fixe  courses for a set price. However, Indeblue offers three selections for each course. Are you following me? So instead of having one meal per course, you’ll get three per course. I stress this because I was unaware and it totally reflected on our bill. So do yourself a favor and really pay attention and read the menu.

Ok, moving on. So, the night always has to start off with a drink of some sort. My drink of choice was the Indeblue-tini, the restaurant’s spin on the classic martini, I’m guessing. Whatever the case, it was yummy! It remided me of those mango Naked juices but spiked.

I chose the crab cakes for my first course. Not the kind of crab cakes I’m used to having. They were really crunchy, almost hard on the outside and I didn’t really taste much crab. I also didn’t care for the sauce that surrounds the cakes. The presentation though? Lovely.

For the second course, I decided to go with the Crab and Shrimp Moilee served with a side of rice. I wasn’t crazy about this dish, however, I can appreciate real jumbo shrimp and lump crab meat. It just didn’t do it for my pallet though.

Last but not least, dessert! Esspresso ice cream with saffron rabri. Delicious.

It was a nice experience overall. I didn’t fall in love with any of the dishes but I won’t let that discourage me. I will be back! Any suggestions?

    I have tried Indian food before I like it, very spicy and tasteful! I guess it all depends on what you order. You should try Tashan Restaurant and lounge, located 777 S. Board Street.
