I loved the fried plantains appetizer with a spicy sauce! My friends enjoyed the "raw lasagna "--light but filling. I had the Indian dish that was very flavorful. The desserts were delicious. Accompanied by excellent coffee.

Yes. Risotto is usually a safe bet. I'm a vegetarian who absolutely hates tempeh but the walnut crusted dish is delicious. Your wife is lucky to be married to a vegetolerant guy like you!
