taj

taj
서울특별시 중구 명동길 73 YWCA연합회; also at 서울특별시 중구 명동1가 1-3
tel02-776-0677

what was consumed: indian food! samosas, paneer makhani, lamb vindaloo (these tend to be my usual at indian restaurants. hahaha)

yum. indian food! 

i asked my indian american friend about her preference for indian restaurants in seoul. even before i could finish my question, she recommended taj. she said that it's on the pricier side, but it's worth it and the best she'd had in seoul. i'm glad i trusted her opinion because taj is delish!

so, kenny and i, as was our tradition, trekked out to myungdong to try out taj after christmas (or was it easter?) service. the dinig room was quite large and i've never seen it totally fill up (in subsequent visits to taj, that is). that just means there is always a seat for us, and frequently the exact seat that we want. once seated, we quickly put in our order and wait for the delicious food to come our way. we start our meal with samosas and move on to the curries. 

not surprisingly, taj has most other indian dishes (like tandoori) and they seem to be popular among other diners. kenny and i, however, have our favorites.

the first time i'd ever had paneer makhani was with kenny, at ganga, in seoul, years ago. it's still one of our favorites and something that we always order, without fail. taj does a good job, with its buttery-ness and paneer-ness. i often wish they served larger portions, even though that's just my eyes talking because i always leave too full (but happy).

i dunno what it is about indian food, but it's always on my list of places i need (not want. need) to find. luckily, in seoul, there's taj!
