Doable Doaba

Just 10 blocks south of Columbia, Doaba Deli is a hidden gem serving delicious Indian food. This family owned restaurant is small, but the food is certainly excellent.

When you step in, you only see about three different tables and a glass display case with various foods. Though this eatery is small and easy to pass by, the food is both affordable and tasty.

I ordered the palak paneer, which consists of spinach, a tomato gravy and paneer (a type of cheese). It was spicy and delectable. Although the dish is not served with rice, you can order the various types of breads or rice on the menu. This is a bit of an inconvience, but the food that I tried was still appetizing.

I also ordered the mango lassi (of course) and it was a bit thinner than some other lassis I have tried before. Though it was not my favorite, it was still tasty.

Everything is under $10, so this place is perfect for those of us who do not have too much money to spend on outside foods. Doaba Deli is also not that far from campus, so it is easy to stop by if you have some time during the day. Though it is not a fancy sit-down restaurant, it is an excellent option to consider when you want to eat some no-nonsense foods.

Most of the food on the menu is vegetarian, and they make it very apparent when you look at the available dishes.

Therefore, I would give Doaba Deli three and a half Bobby Flays.
