    Oh I just can't wait until next summer, when I'll be in New York, city of my heart. I hope that I'll have a chance for an Amma dining experience! Congratulations, Mr. Saran & co. All the best
  8. Ah Christmas aromas, fragrances, smells are my favorite - I remember being served gulab jamuns infused with Grand Marnier - the orange and cinnamon blended well with cloves and vanilla. orange cinnamon cloves vanilla
  9. private formal dining, rather stiff and looked uncomfortable, but had a nice view. I forgot to take photos of where we were seated.
  10. I absolutely adore Indian food. After reading Mr. Suvir Saran's wonderfully eloquent posts and of his restaurant Amma, and the glowing reviews, I hope that when I come to NYC next year, I'll have the honor and pleasure of dining at Amma. Congratulations, Mr. Saran, all the best! We have a few Northern and Southern Indian restaurants here in Jakarta but so far I have only been to Mantra. Although I'm sure Mantra comes nowhere close to the dining experience at Amma, we enjoyed a delicious casual meal here last week. We were seated on sumptious peach colored pillows which contrasted nicely with the maroon silk wall hangings. We started out with warm naan, then came lovely dal, a succulent mutton dish, some spinach and cheese, and tandoor chicken. I wanted to take more photos but I was knuckle deep in the mutton, which was the best dish of all. And I don't really like lamb and mutton all that much. But this was heavenly.

    Dinner! 2003

    Monday night: Made breakfast for dinner: pancakes from scratch, over easy eggs, beef bacon, Australian grapes, apple juice and coffee. Tuesday night: Tahu telur (a tofu omelette) with a spicy peanut butter sauce, bean sprouts and chopped kyuri cucumber, topped with golden fried shallots and served with krupuk (shrimp puffs/chips) and brown rice. I was too lazy to trim the bean sprouts. We really enjoyed this light meal, especially with the green tea we drank; it was very special, hand shlepped from Beijing by friends.
