Boy oh boy...looks.. like I'll be having some NAAN in my future!

About a half a block away from my apartment.

If they have some: Naan, Samosas, and lentil soup.. I'll be doing the happy dance.

This used to be a THAI place and it closed about 3 months ago. They've been remolding for a couple of months and the name of the new place was installed a few days ago. Let's just say that I've been looking up, checking to see if an OPEN sign has been put up, everytime that I walk or drive by this corner.

It's actually the corner that I turn off the main 6 lane street onto my side street that takes me to my apartment. It is also the street that I walk on to go to PT for my hand injury.

AND.. the Korean message where the big number '10' ??? A friend asked someone and they said that it says that they will open by the end of OCTOBER and people.. I'm gonna say it.. "IT IS THE EVENING OF OCT 29 right now as I type this!" SO, it could be tomorrow? Or maybe the 31st on Wednesday?

Boy oh boy... I'm ready to be the first customer. I had that honor of being the first customer about 20 years ago in my home-town in Oklahoma.

Ok, check often for a restaurant review of the Doli Curry and Tandoori Restaurant.

**DO you see the name: Knowing? This is the street where I turn to go to my apartment. When I first moved here.. I would look for the GOLD AND WISE BANK and that would remind me that I was WISE to turn at the next street because, if I do so, I will KNOW (Knowing store) where my apartment is.

Hey, when you live in a 'highrise' city w/out street signs on the streets.. you do what you can to find your way home! :D

I've never had Thai food, Not a big Market for that in Oklahoma though.

Have a great week!

I never had a meal in the Thai restaurant when it was open- but, a few people that I know had either been there or knew those that had and they all said:

Expensive and not that good.

SO, here's hoping that the INDIAN FOOD will be: GREAT and reasonably priced. I mean.. how much can some Naan bread cost? :D

Thanks for stopping by. I will check the sign today when I get home from work-- to see if there is a sign that says: OPEN or even if the other sign has been taken down to signal that the place is now OPEN.

I love the way you find your way home. I like directions like that..well unless the business or whatever I'm using as a landmark closes.

Only 2 more days in October so you should be eating something new and good soon!

Susan.. when I lived in Okinawa, Japan.. the Americans had actually printed a book that gave directions like that.. go 5k and turn left at the big blue sign, and right at the tall tree/etc. :D

Everything was in Japanese.. so, you did what you had to do.

I'm a great direction giver.. I even did this sort of thing in the states. I'd give 'landmarks' so you know you're in the right place.. and living in a foreign country-- it's even more important!
