They might be within CDC Code.

Doesn’t matter. Made I feel queasy and OUTSIDE of this virus I have never really worried too much about how food got prepared — coming from a third-world country and having bummed around quite a few other third-world countries.

This just did NOT sit well with I.

SADDEST THING. The SUPREME IRONY.

They were preparing this for ER personnel at the local hospital.

People taking care of other people!

If one person in ER gets it …

Ahhhhhh.

This has to be happening all over the place.

YIKES.

“Taste of India”, Dover, N.H. — 25th Anniversary Special Dinner Buffet A Great Success!

by Anura Guruge



The special dinner buffet at the “Taste of India” in Dover (N.H.) to celebrate their 25th anniversary in business was a great success. Well attended, good food, wonderful buzz and lots of cheer in the air.

We got there at 7pm as planned. Joga Singh, the c0-owner, had kindly reserved a table for us. That was kind, as always. It was a good job we had made a reservation. It was packed and continued to be for the hour and twenty minutes we were there. Nice mix of people, Asian and Caucasian in equal numbers. Great testament to what the two Singh brothers have manged to wrought in their 25 years in Dover. I was thinking on the way back. It could not have been easy, especially at the start in 1991. Kudos to them all. Wonderful family.

Bravo. Congratulations & Thank YOU.

Here is to the next 50 years!

We most certainly like the “Taste of India” in Dover. We try and go there whenever we can though alas that is not that often. We have been to their Sunday buffet and enjoyed.

Though I do not subscribe to their Facebook page this got displayed on my Facebook ‘home’ page the other day. That was propitious, methinks. Going to try and make it if we can. It would be good and nice to celebrate this special anniversary with them.

Nearly ALL of the ‘6 Images of the Day‘ for yesterday, November 8, 2015, were taken at ‘The Taste of India‘. We go there as often as we can. Recommend that you do too. See my two (2) reviews of the ‘Taste of India’ on TripAdvisor.com. Yes, that is our friend Kati Preston who now figures often in this blog.

That we don’t, alas, manage to get there as often as I would like, or as often as we should, does not mean that we don’t think that the “Taste of India” is a very good place to eat — decent Indian food. It is invariably a case that Dover is not a place that we typically stop for dinner or lunch.

I had put them TOP of my list of 10 Indian restaurants in New Hampshire in 2012, and there is no reason, whatsoever, as to why I would even think of changing that ranking. Overall, when you factor taste, SERVICE, price, cordiality and pleasantness of surroundings the “Taste of India” invariably has to come up trumps. A WMUR poll of Indian restaurants in NH confirmed that.

We went to the “Taste of India”, this last Sunday, Father’s Day, after we had gone to see the comedy “Jurassic World“.

It was good. Very agreeable. We ordered a fair amount of appetizers because we all like them.


They made me some very spicey Lamb Shahi Korma and we had a Saag Paneer variant with chicken biryani and Aloo Paratha. It was all good. The kids liked it. They ate a bunch. But we still had 3 containers to bring home. It was good. Got to chat with very personable Joga Singh, an ex-math teacher, now the co-owner (with his brother) and Manager. It was very nice. They have a buffet Wednesday nights and Sunday afternoons. We definitely plan to go. So should YOU.

A series of personal lists to share ‘MY New Hampshire’ with any interested reader.

Check CATEGORY (>>>) for ‘Ten In New Hampshire‘ for the other lists.

Not in any particular order, though the ones that I frequent are at the top (). That said I don’t frequent Indian restaurants that often because Deanna and the girls are not that partial to spicy food. There was a time, 25 years ago, when there was only one Indian restaurant in NH, in Nashua. Things have definitely improved though I was really getting worried that I might not be able to come up with 10. Many may not know this. Indian cuisine is more popular in the U.K. than Chinese. Going for a ‘curry’ is routine and a popular after-Pub activity.
