Houston Restaurant Week and lemonade

One of my favorite times of the year is Houston restaurant week – good food, good prices, and giving back to the community — what more could you ask for? Last night, i had the opportunity to try Indika, and I was truly impressed with the relaxing vibe and interesting yet not overwhelmingly complex selections.

I had the Chaat (Indian Street Food), Organic Chicken stuffed with Pistachio and Mango Chutney and the Ginger Chocolate tart w/ coffee ice cream (note: the Actual menu in restaurant is  slightly different than what is posted on the HRW website)

I had never had Indian food before, so this was a rather novel experience for me – but also relatively authentic according to more seasoned veterans of the cuisine.  The waitstaff was extemely accomodating and quick to make reccomendations – I will definately return as several menu items were quite appealing.

On the note of Houston restaurant week, Daily Grill restaurants nationwide will donate all of its proceeds from lemonade sales on Friday, August 20 (National Lemonade Day) to a special nonprofit that was formed by a 4-year-old girl whose short life continues to make an impact. Daily Grill founder, President and CEO Bob Spivak hopes to double $5,000 typically generated in sales and donate 100% to Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation for Childhood Cancer.  Daily Grill’s fresh-squeezed, hand-shaken lemonade has been one of the restaurants’ signature items since 1988.
