One of my best girlfriends, Anjali, is a blog regular. Y’all know her. She’s a blast, and she is also responsible for introducing me to the Indian culture. I’m a little obsessed with it now, and I’m plotting how we are going to set up our kids one day so that they can have a gorgeous Indian/Jewish wedding. (My fingers are crossed that I can make that happen!)
Anjali gave me my first sari. (Isn’t it pretty?!)
She arranged for me to get henna done for my first time.
And I’ve gotten to experience some incredibly beautiful cultural + religious events + ceremonies with her family.
One of my favorite things Anjali introduced me to over the years is Indian food – which I’d never tried before she and I became friends. I love it now, but I think I was intimidated to try it before only because I didn’t know anything about it or what to order. Anjali took me to Bhojanic in Decatur to try Indian food for my first time, and she guided me through the menu. After that, I was hooked!
There was a problem, though. Bhojanic was located in Decatur, an area of town that I adore but rarely make it out to. Well, my problem has been officially solved! Bhojanic opened a Buckhead location yesterday in the Shops Around Lenox!
Now, it’ll be so much easier for me to drop in to taste some of THIS deliciousness.
Here’s a little bit about Bhojanic from their website:
In a city that is becoming increasingly populated with Indian culture, one would think that there would be an abundance of traditional, home-style Indian cuisine available. In Atlanta, this is not the case but thankfully, Atlanta is home to a truly fabulous, home-style Indian eatery that has the traditional taste of home with a warm and cosmopolitan ambiance.
The owners of Bhojanic understand the need for authentic Indian fare. With over 20 years of experience in catering and food service and a beloved first location in Decatur, the owners of Bhojanic are skillful at making delicious and creative Indian food nestled in lovely surroundings. The quality of food, the delightful atmosphere, and the excellent service that this restaurant provides are unmatched! The finest vegetables and meats are used to create the flavorful experience of the Indian culture.
The food you find at Bhojanic is exactly like the food cooked in the homes of Northern India. Using yogurts, authentic Indian spices, and other fresh ingredients allows the food to remain nourishing, light, and filling. With a wide selection of food at Bhojanic, there are choices for everyone.
Welcome to the ‘hood, Bhojanic! I’ll see you very soon!
