exterior of Tarka Indian Kitchen in San Antonio, Texas
Texas Indian restaurant chain provides some delicious renditions of Indian favorites and
takes pride in operating green. At Tarka Indian Kitchen, chicken
is hormone free and lamb is grass fed and halal. And in addition to offering the expected meat
dishes, the menu makes it possible to put together a very satisfying vegetarian
meal. For that, begin with vegetable samosas, add
a few curries--perhaps malai kofta dumplings, channa masala garbanzos, or aloo
gobi cauliflower and potatoes. An order
of garlic naan or roti will round things out, and a mango or strawberry lassi drink
can pass as dessert.

propeller, allowing for a smooth and safe, yet fast and exciting, ride through
the sometimes shallow water.In addition
to being extreme fun, jetting down the Rogue River in one allows you to observe
some of the area's plentiful wildlife.On my family's ride, the driver slowed to point out ospreys, great blue
herons, and deer.We also saw fishermen
netting huge steelhead.
Trips vary in duration, and some include a meal.The four- hour dinner excursion boat ventures
into the spectacular Hellgate Canyon and then turns around and docks for dinner
at the OK Corral ranch.You’ll have the
choice of walking up to the dining room or of riding in a tractor-pulled
cart.There, sheltered in a covered dining
room with window portals open to the outside, you’ll be seated at a table with
several other families and served a bountiful home-cooked meal.
is convenient to stay the night in town, especially so at the Riverside Inn where
the boats dock.
