Bombay Talkie

Is it strange to dream of lamb chops? Does anyone else wake up at 4am gripped with icy fear that the waiter is on his way back to the table to tell her that they are, in fact, sold out of lamb chops? And imagine my sadness when I realized that oh, don’t worry, it was only a bad dream, there are plenty of lamb chops – BUT NONE FOR ME BECAUSE IT WAS 4AM AND WHO IN THEIR RIGHT MIND EATS LAMB CHOPS AT 4AM, NOW GO BACK TO BED!!

I think this is what caused the panic…

These are Bombay Talkie’s Lamb Chops marinated in ginger, garlic and yogurt, cooked in the tandoor and drizzled with a cilantro and mint spread. I think. Honestly, the description doesn’t really fit. It’s pretty easy to identify flavors like ginger, mint and cilantro, and they can even overpower a dish. But these lamb chops didn’t taste like anything but MAGIC! They were lamb chops is special secret sauce, mystery chops of perfection. The only problem (and, to be fair, our server warned us about this one in advance) was that there were five of them and two of us. Five divided by two = big fight. Other diners may have heard things like “I’ll pay the bill if you just give me that last lamb chop,” “I’m going away for ten days; you’ll miss me and regret not giving me the last lamb chop,” and even “do you really think you need another lamb chop?” (that last one is only effective if you stare at your dining companion’s waistline while you say it). If you go to Bombay Talkie, just get your own order. Best $15 you'll ever spend on lamb.

Mmm, magically delicious lamb chops! I'd grapple over the last one, too!

Well, first off, yes, dreaming about lamb chops is strange. Really strange.

That being said, there are worse things your could dream of. I once dreamed about a pregnant pelican landing on the roof of my office building. That was years ago though. I'm much better now.

We've always talked about trying lamb chops, but haven't done so yet. Remind me never to be with you when we do order them - I don't need that snide waistline comment/look in an attempt to steal my lamb chop. ><

I'm not a huge fan of lamb, but those look spectacular. I'm salivating just thinking about them-- even w/ these taco hell burritos sitting like a rock in my stomach...Bombay Talkie has been on my list for a while-- I love that name....
