Best Curry-Induced High San Francisco 2001 - 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.
