Latest Campus Biryani and Kebab news and reviews
We picked an absolutely terrible, blizzardy night to try Campus Biryani. Thankfully, all's well that ends well. The chef/proprietor was more than welcoming and the freshly prepared, spicy food warmed us right up.
Of the biryani and rice, everyone said they'd definitely try it again (though John mentioned he would bring extra crackers to cut the spice). The chicken was tasty, the mutton tender and very flavorful; and the heat played across the whole palate, while not overwhelming the distinct taste of the ingredients.
The order of mustard greens and spinach curry elicited a pleased, "Ooooh!" from the chef. The dish was yummy, too, though it might have gone better with rice than naan. The light, fluffy naan, however, was more popular (with us newbies, anyway) than the dense paratha bread.
Chris, who wisely walked to meet us rather than trying to drive in the blizzard, wanted to point out the added bonus that no one there thought he was weird for sitting by himself for 45 minutes - and the tea was good.
