Situated next door to its sister Indian grocery store, Ginger and Spice, at the intersection of Little River Turnpike and Braddock Road, Indaroma looks like a bakery but there's something -- a lot of something -- more to it. Sure, it's a bakery, and a wonderful one at that - breads, cakes, pastries, cookies and more stock the display shelves and cases. Mango cream, pistachio and chocolate are some of the popular cake flavors. Cookies included cardomom shortbreads and others with a distinctly Indian flavor. Whether you want a custom birthday cake or a beautifully decorated wedding cake, Indaroma is sure to please. They do a thriving business as wedding caterers that don't disappoint.
But the real surprise comes when you order a meal at the counter. Samosas, butter chicken, lamb and tandoori chicken are just a few of the multitude of Indian dishes available. They also make a mean BLT! Most entrees are served with a fragrantly spiced rice dish. I like to order an herbed yogurt to cool the spices in the sauces. Don't forget to try the naan - it's freshly made also. In addition to mango lassi and an assortment of bottled beverages, they offer a variety of hot teas and black or peach iced tea to quench your thirst.
The atmosphere of this family-run place is friendly, relaxed and casual and the place draws a regular, devoted crowd for both lunch and dinner. Meet your friends or make a few new ones at this place.
