Located in the corner of a strip mall right off of Route 52 in Fishkill, Tanjore is easy to drive by, but it would be a shame if you missed your chance to stop into this restaurant. One of our Indian friends claims that Tanjore is the most "authentic" Indian restaurant in the area, and the lady will tell you that it's by far the best locally. Let's take a look and see what we have here, shall we ?
|Here it is, don't miss it!|
|This mango lassi was served in an attractive glass. Drinkable yogurt never tasted so good!|
|Pappadum along with mint chutney, onion chutney, and tamarind chutney. A feast for the senses!|
|One order comes with 2 samosas. Good thing it was just the two of us :)|
|Vegetable samosa - it's not just a carrier for the tamarind chutney! It's its own tasty little beast!|
|I love a nice bowl of soup - this Mulligatawny is a little bowl of sunshine!|
|Marina Beach Chicken with Basmati rice. This is the lady's favorite!|
|Baingan Bartha along with Keema Nan! Super tasty!|
On this trip, we didn't order any dessert because we were quite simply stuffed to the gills after all of this food and as mentioned, we both had to take home a doggy bag :) This more or less concludes the meal, but before you leave, check out some of the lovely decor that we enjoyed while in Tanjore!
As you enter, you're greeted by some beautiful flowers floating in water.
|This bowl of Chrysanthemums welcomes you as you come in.|
|Beautiful Indian Artwork.|
Above the bar area, there is what we believe to be a representation of Ganesh adorning the wall.
|We believe this to be the deity of Ganesh|
Finally, on your way out, (or perhaps on your way in), there is a cute little statuette - cover your eyes children, she's in the nude! - holding your typical Indian restaurant candy for you - sugar cubes, candied licorice pieces, and those seeds.. fennel seeds? That have that same taste. Always good for refreshing one's breath and palette after a tasty Indian meal :)
|This Indian statuette is offering you some tasty candy :)|
