I've not eaten much Indian cuisine in my lifetime, and I decided it was time to change that, so we ventured down to Houston and visited Kaiser's Himalaya, a Restaurant focusing on Pakistani cuisine.
I spent some time thinking about my experience yesterday trying to figure out why my thoughts on this cuisine are shallow and completely lacking insight. I've come to the conclusion that because most of the flavors were so new and complex, I simply can't describe them.
However, everything we ordered would be a great place to start if you are new to this type of Indian food. Be sure to visit on a weekend day or in the evening so you can order from the menu. Lunch selections seem to be predetermined. Happy eating and exploring!
Speaking of exploring, if you head down to that area of Houston, bring cash. Many places take credit cards, but cash is so much easier, and sometimes you can get a cash discount.
Another exploration tip: Some of these places don't sparkle and shine like the chain restaurants up here in The Woods. The appearance of cleanliness is not necessarily a priority, so set your expectations accordingly.
Himalaya is located at 6652 SW Freeway in Houston (77074). Like many localy owned places, they are closed on Mondays.
