Best Curry-Induced High

The Ganges

In recent studies, certain kinds of curry have been shown to have mild narcotic effects and be slightly addictive. What better place to "turn on" than the Ganges, a vegetarian restaurant that looks like it was built in someone's living room. Under the tapestries and the seductive drone of the raga cassettes, a flavor revelation takes place. The temperature rises from spices attacking the blood. The pupils dilate. Twenty-two ounces of watery Indian beer calm the nerves, and all that's left is a foggy memory of stuffed baby potatoes in spinach-coconut sauce. Despite some short-term memory loss, most customers find themselves returning again and again, so make reservations.
