When you are an alien in a foreign land, every once in a while, there is this urge to connect back with the mother ship. Being a vegetarian Indian visiting a predominantly carnivorous country, one tends to seek out Indian restaurants as ideal trans-communication portals. Sometimes, the meal hits the spot…often times, not.

I would highly recommend Tandoor Restaurante 1 to anyone craving Indian food in Sao Paulo. The food was tasty (as can be deduced from my empty thali), and pretty authentic.

The misses were:

  • Garam Masala 2, which was hippy cool with dishes that were almost, but not quite, entirely unlike Indian food.
  • Delhi Palace 3, where I had buffet style lunch. It was OK at best. And they played the most random Bollywood songs ever.
