Happy Hour at Tamarind of London

Man, I love a good happy hour. Delicious cocktails and bites for half the regular price? I’m there! Recently, I was invited out Tamarind of London to check out their new happy hour. As I had never visited the Newport Coast dining spot I immediately agreed to try it out. Tamarind of London is the only US location of a UK based group of upscale Indian restaurants. Now, I know the UK does Indian cuisine well so I was pretty excited to sample it.

But first, a cocktail. This is the Narangi Crush. Made with vodka, elderflower, blood oranges and grapefruit it was tart and refreshing. The perfect start to happy hour.

Also the perfect start? Naan. Oh, how I love naan. At Tamarind you can get traditional, potato and garlic. I had to try all three (I just had to!) and they were oh so tasty.

And then more drinks. Since I did have to drive home I decided to try the non alcoholic ones. That’s a Mango Sparkler and a Strawberry Mojito. So tasty, I didn’t even notice there was no alcohol.

We were treated to a variety of small plates and my absolute favorites were the Eggplant Curry and the Tandoori Prawns. Both dishes exploded with flavor and I had to resist taking the whole tray from the waiter. Resist I had to because soon came dessert.

Chocolate Samosas. Chocolate. Samosas. One bite and a rich, spicy chocolate filling came oozing out. They were so delicious and the perfect cap to the meal.

Tamarind of London‘s happy hour is now available Sunday – Thursday from 5-7pm. I can’t wait to go back.
