Change of Plans

Actually, we did not end up at Tamarindo. They don’t take reservations, and by the time we got there, we were told the wait would be more than an hour. We’re glad to see a downtown Oakland restaurant become that popular, but we decided to go elsewhere. We ended up at Breads of India for an excellent dinner, marred only by my learning that chicken tikka masala is not an authentically Indian dish—it’s a colonial English invention. This was disappointing news, but it didn’t stop me from having it anyway.

Indian food might seem like a strange choice for Valentine’s Day, especially this Valentine’s Day, but I’m happy to report that no violence broke out.
