Today I stopped by Durbar 84 (2103 Allendown Dr) for lunch. Durbar classifies itself as a Napalese & Indian restaurant. We got there about a half hour before they closed for lunch, and the place was dead, so the buffet (which looked pretty inclusive) was not in the cards. Besides, I was interested in the Napalese aspect of the place, which does not seem to be featured in the buffet.
I tried the momos, which I had never heard of, let alone tried before. At least as they are served at Durbar, they are dumplings filled with ground chicken, turkey, and spices. They are served with an interesting spicy sauce — basically tomatoes cooked in their tandoor mixed with sesame seed, chili peppers, and lemon juice. It was an interesting experience for me. I quite liked the momos, but especially so after I got the balance of dumpling to sauce correct. You should absolutely order them if you go there, but even though I liked them and am glad I ordered them, there was something missing to make them a truly great experience that I would go out of my way to return for.
The highlight of the meal was actually something the waiter needed to convince me to overcome my fullness to try: the rice pudding. They have, unequivocally, the best rice pudding I have ever had. It is perfectly balanced with cardamom, actually giving the dish the mistaken impression it contains cinnamon and nutmeg. Seriously, this was the stuff dreams are made of.
