India, West Hartford

When you move from one country to another country you probably carry your food memories along with all the other memories. After moving from India to the US, we visited many Indian restaurants from East coast to West coast. Most of the time, I failed to get that authentic Indian taste. Most restaurants had the same taste and same color whether its chicken Tikka or vegetable Korma. Somewhere, I lost interest in visiting Indian restaurants. But, there are a couple of times when you get that taste you are looking for. We recently heard that a new Indian restaurant had opened nearby to our city. I was hopeful to visit because it is the Thali brand, it is popular for its incredible Indian taste. India , West Hartford was a good find. We were there for lunch. Modern contemporary, clean set up was great with Indian touch like displaying framed saree and using colors like scarlet red and jet black which you rarely see in an Indian restaurant in the US. We recently visited India . For lunch

Onion Mountain, Simsbury, CT review

Coming from a small town in eastern part of India with lush greenery I always carry within me and try to find that everywhere I go. Quaint small town charm always appeals me. When it comes to food, I try to find the same small town flavor, local grown real and organic food instead of typical chain restaurants. It always carries the flavor and the food culture of that place. The other day I was trying to find some local green or organic restaurants nearby Hartford , Connecticut area where we stay. I found a few, and Onion Mountain is one of them located in Simsbury , Connecticut . Mexican American self-service restaurant with a cute and casual set up. It offers food like burritos, tacos, salads, wraps, a few sides and option for kids too. Established in 2014, the best part of Onion Mountain is most food is from locally grown places and also mentioned where it is from. Food is decent even though there is no such big menu yet there are options for vegan and vegetarian. Burritos
