Passage to India
Unfortunately, Carlisle just didn’t do to the trick, so off we went to the parking lot of a Days Inn in Harrisburg. It sounds sketchy, and well, it is, but it sure is delicious. Passage to India is literally attached to the outdoor pool of this economic temporary housing, but don’t be turned off. The décor is charming, the menu is expansive, the wait staff is extraordinarily attentive, and the food is spicy. Perfect for a date night, eh, ladies? In order to try as much of the menu as possible, I ordered The Ultimate combination platter, which came with creamed lentils, lamb palak, chicken makhani, spiced vegetables, and the most tender tandoori chicken I’ve ever had. To scoop it all up, we splurged on an order of garlic naan, which was magical. Finally, some saffron rice pudding satisfied my insatiable sweet tooth.
Despite being a little hard to find, Passage to India delivered on legit fulfillment in a way only an Indian restaurant in a hotel parking lot can. We left feeling full almost to the point of regret. I always consider that a success.
