Last night we used our first Groupon purchase to an Indian food restaurant in Anchorage. Both Craig and I have been to Namaste Shangri-La a couple times, but that was a couple of years ago when they first opened.
It was evident the restaurant has gained some popularity because the place was packed when we got there and had to wait about 20 minutes for a table.
When we were seated, the service was good, but it did take a while for our food to come. We probably waited 25-30 minutes for our main entrees.
We didn’t mind too much though because it gave us a chance to talk. 🙂
Pappri Chaat – Fried whole wheat crisps topped with a medley of chickpea, potato, yogurt, chutney, and Indian spices.
Craig has had this before and loves it; I thought it was okay.
I ordered the:
Rangoon Kafta – Fresh spinach, paneer, and minced vegetable croquette cooked in ta tomato cream sauce
Shrimp Yangoon – succulent shrimp cooked in a traditional spiced with coconut sauce. Specialty from Burma.
Craig really liked his dish. I thought it was okay but preferred my dish.
We did have a fair amount of food, yet at the same time, I don’t think it was more than we usually have. For me, personally, I don’t think my stomach is used to that type of food. So, while the food was good, I don’t really care feeling bloated after eating.
With all that food still lingering in my stomach this morning, it was time to hit the gym for a sweat session.
I have not run since last Sunday and the only other exercise I’ve done was a 90 minute yoga session on Friday night. That is unheard of in my book!
I hit up the gym this morning for some time on the stationary bike and elliptical.
bike: 30 minutes
elliptical: 15 minutes
This afternoon, I did some baking.
Strawberry Jelly Surprise Muffins
The only modifications I made was that I used half whole wheat pastry flour and rhubarb jam for the center filling.
Hope your weekend was a good one!
