I’ve been hearing about Punjab Sweets for awhile now. But it wasn’t until our friend, Ajit, set a time and date that we finally made our way to this out-of-the-way hole-in-the-wall restaurant located in a strip mall in Kent, WA. I’d say it was worth the wait but I’m wondering just why did I wait???
Above is a thali plate – an assortment of vegetarian nibbles tempered with yogurt, rice and a sweet jelly-like sweet in the middle. The little tins contain palak paneer (spinach and cheese), bhindi (seasoned okra) and aloo gobi (cauliflower with potatoes). In the back corner are pickled carrots and a slice of small hot pepper.
This is a dish of aloo tikki chaat. It tasted as vibrant as it looks – bursting with spices including mint, tamarind, onions and tomatoes with chick peas all mixed in.
Unfortunately for me, Punjab Sweets is located (during light traffic) about 25 minutes away – otherwise I’d be there often. Despite the drive, I expect to visit often.
