Let me first give you a bit of background on me. I’m American born East Indian. I’ve never been to India yet but when I go see my parents in Southern Virginia, a vegetarian Indian feast is what we have every day for lunch.
Now it’s very hard to find Indian food that is like home. Its kinda like what they say about Chinese food…. it’s not REAL Chinese food. Same goes for Indian. For me that is.
Well, I found this little gem in Tampa. It’s delicious. It’s real! It’s almost like home.
Royal Sweets and Fast Food was awesome. The ladies in there are so sweet and nice. The place is a hole in the wall, nothing fancy. But the food was good!
My sister and I shared a few things.
Pani Puri (you have to just put the whole bad boy in your mouth and experience the explosion of flavors)
Somosa Chaat (this was a vegetarian Somosa covered with goodness. Think of it as an Indian enchilada)
Rava Dosa (these are like crispy crepes that you can fill with the spiced potatoes, and a few other toppings like sambar which is like a yummy vegetarian gravy, coconut chutney, and another red chutney)
Besides that they have countless Indian sweets and Indian trail mixes to fill all your hearts desires.
Check it out.
This place is awesome. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who would like to try some authentic Indian food.
