#adventure Has become a running joke that I say when I am greeted with a new abroad experience. It can be anything from a beautiful hike that I have never completed before, to trying new types of food, or meeting new people.
I really want to keep the adventure spirit in me this semester because when else am I going to live on the Scottish coast, near a castle, and eat a scone a day? Probably never.
On similar terms, my economics teacher in high school once gave me advice regarding college. It is 95% about showing up. To class. To interesting talks. To parties. Life is meant to be lived and when you show up to life who knows what will happen? I took his advice close to heart and have not just applied it to college, but whatever situation I am in.
This blog post is about trying a new cuisine, Indian. Back in the US I just never got around to trying it, and when I arrived in the UK, I heard that the Indian was quite good here. Just as Americans order Chinese for takeout, in the UK, people order Indian.
A couple of friends and I went to Tulsi, after our long hike last weekend. Tulsi also offers Thai options, but since I was still on my #adventure kick from the hike, I decided to finally try Indian.
I ordered vegetable tikka masala, with rice, and naan. AND IT WAS AMAZING. The tikka masala was a sweet tomato- like sauce tossed with cauliflower, zucchini, squash, and green beans. The naan bread was perfect to dip into the sauce, and was soft and pillowy. A thicker (and better) version of pita bread.
Tulsi offers great student deals. 6.5 pounds for a starter, main dish, rice, and naan. Talk about a value meal!
I am excited for all of my future adventures to come and my future Indian dinners🙂
