Copper Chimney, Part 2


I can hardly get enough of Copper Chimney's fabulous food. On my second visit, which was at the beginning of December (and, yes, there's already been a third!), I ordered something entirely different than the first time. Taking Foodeater's advice, I tried the Tofu Masala (from the menu: Tofu sautéed with tomatoes, onions, spices & garnished with cilantro (specially prepared sans onions pour moi)) and Paprika Rice.

Wow, the masala sauce is packed with spice and flavor and so delicious! The tofu was a bit soft, but not unpleasantly so. I'm just not sure if a tofu novice would care for the texture. While I couldn't taste the spices in the rice, it was perfectly cooked and a wonderful accompaniment to the tofu dish.

I'll be sure to stagger my Copper Chimney posts so you're not inundated, but please visit this restaurant if you're local. The staff is courteous, knowledgeable, and very friendly.

Have a wonderful holiday, whatever you're celebrating!

Yum, ok, I want Indian food right now. Indian feast on Christmas? Hey, why not?

Holy moly those tofu chunks are HUGE! It sounds really good, though. I think a Christmas Indian feast is a great idea!

I think I'd like that meal better than the one we're actually having for Christmas! (Well, okay, maybe just as much).

Hope you enjoy the holidays! :)
