Churchgate Station was a Pleasent Surprise

Special cocktail

Last weekend Team Mago headed to Churchgate Station on SE Division for a taste of authentic Indian cuisine. This is a fixed menu, family style dining experience brought to you by the folks from next door Bollywood Theater.

Hyderbadi chicken biryani

Although the food overall was very good, we liked some of the dishes more than others. For example, we thought the grilled cauliflower, endive, and broccoli curry was better than the masala vada (lentil fritters). But the star of the show was the hyderbadi chicken biryani served with amazing rice and two killer sauces 9three if you saved your dish from the curry course). The flavors in this dish were terrific.

Friendly dining companions

We also enjoyed meeting other Portlandians who were sitting at our table. We exchanged notes on Portland restaurants and travel experiences. All four companions were, in a word, delightful.

Morgan is working on a full post for Churchgate Station so stayed tuned.
