L'Etoile des Indes: simplement brillant

Posted by Emmanuel / March 25, 2010

Une des perles rares du colonialisme britannique aux Indes est sans aucun doute la libre circulation de la culture indienne au sein de l'occident. M'intéressant seulement qu'aux choses importantes, j'ai envie de vous parler d'un restaurant indien que j'ai découvert dernièrement. Je n'ai aucun mérite cependant, quant à cette découverte, car l'Étoile des Indes est plutôt difficile à manquer en plein milieu de la rue Sainte-Catherine.

Je me considère comme étant assez difficile lorsqu'il est question d'évaluer la qualité d'un restaurant. De plus, étant déjà allé à d'autres excellents restaurants indiens, tel que le Bombay Mahal, il est certain qu'une comparaison risque d'être cruelle. Et pourtant, c'est sans aucune hésitation que j'affirme ceci : « l'Étoile des Indes est le meilleur restaurant indien dans lequel j'ai mangé. »

Je pourrais essayer de justifier cette affirmation, argumenter ou encore prétendre qu'il ne faut qu'y voire une opinion personnelle, mais tout cela serait en vain. Tout ce que je peux faire c'est de vous inciter d'y aller de vous former votre propre opinion. Voici, donc en quelques images ma soirée à L'Étoile des Indes :

accompagnement.jpg

Comme amuse-gueules nous avons reçu ces galettes Pappadum, dont le goût et la texture rappellent un peu les croustilles au maïs, quoiqu'un peu plus légères et huileuses. Celles-ci étaient accompagnées de mangues marinées, dont le goût épicé et frais est assez agréable.

Comme entrée j'ai commandé des Sheek Kebab à l'agneau et mon convive a choisi un plat de Samosa, Bhaji et de Kebab. Le seul défaut que je pourrais trouver à ces plats serait l'accompagnement de salade plutôt ordinaire. Le reste fut un plaisir complet. Les viandes étaient délicatement parfumées et épicées sans que cela soit excessif. En effet, les plats servis à ce restaurant passent souvent au travers d'une gamme diverse de parfums et de saveurs, mais cela sans jamais trop alourdir le met.

Cette remarque est tout autant justifiée pour ce qui est des plats suivants. J'ai commandé le poulet Bhoona et le cari aux légumes, mon hôte a choisi l'agneau Tikkamasalla, le tout était accompagné d'un riz Palao. Ces plats furent si exquis qu'il est difficile d'en donner une description gustative qui saurait leur rendre justice. De la même façon que la viande fine et délicate fondait sur mes papilles, une sensation de plaisir envahissait ma conscience. Si ce genre de description peut sembler ésotérique à certains, j'en suis désolé, mais je ne saurais en parler autrement. Ces plats sont délicieux, point.

Je ne m'attendais pas à être encore plus surpris par les délices de ce restaurant, pourtant quand arriva le dessert, la petite boule de fromage frite et trempée dans un sirop délicat dans mon assiette, me ravit une fois de plus. Ce Galub Jamp, bien qu'étant un plat frit, n'est pas pour autant trop lourd comme le sont trop souvent d'autres desserts. Avec une tasse de thé au jasmin, ce fut une conclusion admirable à un repas tout aussi admirable.

Que reste-t-il à dire? Le prix est parfaitement raisonnable autour de 15$ pour la table d'hôte et les serveurs sont aimables. Je n'ose toutefois pas donner une note numérique à ce restaurant, car il me vient un conflit interne à qualifier de façon scientifique une expérience frisant tant la perfection.

Ainsi, je vous demande poliment de cesser de lire ce texte et d'aller prompto payer une visite à l'Étoile des Indes.

I think that everything posted made a bunch of sense.

However, think about this, what if you were to write a awesome post title?
I am not suggesting your information is not solid,
but what if you added a post title that makes people desire more?
I mean L'Etoile des Indes: simplement brillant is a
little vanilla. You ought to peek at Yahoo's home page
and watch how they create article headlines to grab viewers to
open the links. You might add a video or a related picture
or two to get readers excited about what you've written. Just my opinion, it could make your blog a little bit more interesting.
