NEW DELHI – INDIAN RESTAURANT
This small restaurant right outside the main gate of Kansai Gaidai Nakamiya Campus that serves delicious Indian food. The owner is able to speak Japanese and Hindi, but no one is able to converse in English. It might be hard to order if you can’t speak these languages, but it is worth it. The menu itself has vegetarian options written in both Japanese and English. Every Indian dish with meat is properly labelled such as Chicken Tikka Masala or Chicken Muglai. Menu items without any meat in their name are vegetarian.
I hope the vegetarian options I explored last week are useful for you guys. If you know of any vegetarian restaurants near campus, I’d love to hear your recommendations. Watch out for the next food post!
