New Flavors: Bombay Bistro (Closed)

By weeklyvolcano on September 14, 2007

Bombaynine_2 Anticipation is an amazing thing. It can make one fixate on things with almost intolerable clutches. Tacoma is now released from said clutches. Bombay Bistro really truly opened yesterday. Let the gluttony begin.

Like locust descending on a field of sweet corn, Tacomans from far and wide poured into Bombay Bistro at lunchtime for a long awaited taste of the East. Employee Carrie greeted us at the door and gave a nice surprise with, ââ?¬Å?Welcome to Bombay Bistro. Our buffet today is complimentary. Please have a seat where ever youââ?¬â?¢d likeââ?¬Â?. What? The food is, like, free? I felt like Elaine from Seinfeld trying to stifle a huge disbelieving ââ?¬Å?Get Out!ââ?¬Â? Grinning ear-to-ear and giggling like idiots, we staked out two tables for our comrades whoââ?¬â?¢d be joining us soon and zipped over to get in the buffet line. I kept breathing through my mouth and nose at once to take in all the heady aromas; ginger, cardamom, fragrant basmati rice, garlic.

For my early impressions, check out the New Flavors section on the Weekly Volcanoâ��s Web site. â�" Jennifer Johnson.
