This past Monday evening, Yelp Elites were wined, dined and otherwise enticed by La Grange's newest addition to the local dining scene, Kama Bistro. Upon arrival at the elegant restaurant, guests were wooed with a welcome cocktail, either a fresh mango or pineapple martini.
After some mixin' and minglin', guests sat down for a taste adventure which focused on traditional flavors representing the Punjabi region of India. Appetizers included Chicken Lemon Tadka, Paneer Karara, two variations of Chicken Tikka, Fish Amritsari and some special off-the-menu lamb meatballs! A refreshing plum cardamom juice drink was served to cleanse the palate before bringing out the course of red and white Argentine wines.
The Yelp Elites were then bedazzled by a sword-wielding belly dancer before noshing on the signature entrée, Lamb Biryani with Raita (a traditional Hyderabad royal family recipe). Wait, but there's still more! The exhilarating epicurean journey culminated with saffron-laced rice pudding.
A huge thanks goes out to our gracious hosts, the staff of Kama Bistro for making this full-on dinner party possible! And of course, thanks to Rain Vodka for providing the spike to the mango and pineapple martinis. You can read the reviews from your fellow yelpers here, and peep the photos snapped by photographer Matt Ginger (Ginger By Design).
Until next time, SYOY!
