It has been a little over three years since I first reviewed Nilgiris Indian Sizzler. Well their website may still be up for now but the restaurant is gone. Yesterday I drove by and noticed it was closed. Sad to see that since it was my favorite lunch buffet. With the demise of the Bombay Grill a year or so ago that leaves only the Clay Oven on the Golden Mile as your source for Indian dining in the Frederick Area.
UPDATE: There is a sign in the window that says Delhis will be opening soon.
Today’s harvest from the garden.
Had a wonderful mid-morning bite to eat last week at the Moxie Bakery & Cafe. I’ve driven by the place many times and its been on my (long) list of places to visit. Sat outside with Mrs. F at one of their three curbside tables. While North Market Street may not be the Champs-Elysees it was quite pleasant. The fountain just north of the cafe provided a nice ambiance. We sampled the chocolate croissant and the croissant bread pudding. Both were good but the bread pudding was excellent. Sometimes bread pudding can be too cloyingly sweet for my taste. This one was just perfect and the croissant base made for an interesting texture. Mrs F also had the egg white and roasted vegetable wrap which I sampled. I though it was very good and was an excellent, healthy alternative to a fast food breakfast sandwich. All in all it was a great place that we will return to. There are too many other tempting pastries on the menu not to go back.
Moxie is located at 629 North Market Street. They are dog friendly and have a water bowl outside for canines.
Harvest time! Tons of peas from the garden. Got all hands on deck this morning and shelled.
Just noticed that the 10th annual Washington DC Wine & Food Expo is coming February 14th and 15th. Anyone ever been? I haven’t and am wondering if it is worth it. I like the fact that wine comes first in the title.
Tangentially inspired by another question emailed me I began to wonder the other day what five things do you have to eat in Frederick? I’m looking for delicious, can’t miss foods that a foodie visitor would want to sample if they came to Frederick. I’m still mulling over my full list, but here’s the first item on my list:
1. The asparagus at Isabellas.
I’d love to see your lists, or hear your suggestions.
Hooray for summer’s bounty! Russian pink heirloom and San Marzano tomatoes from the garden. Drizzled with some olive oil, balsamic and topped with salt, shaved Parmesan and basil. Yes !!
