Try Sunshine Restaurant 69-15 Northern Blvd., Woodside, NY 11370 (718) 639-6900 Have to call ahead as they dont have it all the time.   The wet curries at this place are AMAZING.....  Try the Korma, or the Haleem.  Best Korma I have had in at least 10 years.  Haleem ranks up there too.  One of the few places where the vege dishes are good enough to make you feel guilty for eating their even better meat dishes. I usually get those big aluminum catering trays and feed all my friends.  I think I'll start inviting those who alert me to Edward Greens in my size NWT for under a hundred bucks too.

I would consider that as "I did not have enough of a vacuum between my ears to even consider driving in Delhi"

I've never been to the north or spent much time in cities like Bangalore, Madras/Chennai, Bombay/Mumbai. Most of my time is spent in Mysore. OK, now to get to the point... I don't like to go out to eat when in India because I'm not "allowed" to drink water (Aquaguard, bottled, whatever) outside of the home. If at relatives' homes, we always ask if the water has been boiled. I get mostly south Indian food. On occasion I have north Indian food. I like dosa with mint coconut chutney, poori, palak poori, fish curry, chicken/beef (seekh?) kebabs, appam and curry...damn, I'm getting hungry.

I haven't been there lately but had someone pick up food for me to eat. Lets see, I have had their food about 5+ times in the last two months. Wish I was having some tonight. Their cook may have left. Come to think of it I had that amazing Korma about last year. The Haleem was around Oct/Nov too. Now you are causing me anxiety, will I be able to get that korma again? However, the vegies I had, squash with chickpeas (??) was out of this world. If you are throwing a party, their food turns out to be quite inexpensive.

We never had any problem getting bottled water in restaurants in India. As long as you deal with a reliable brand (Himalaya seemed common as did Kinley, the latter owned by Coke) and open it at the table you should be fine. If you're concerned, just get a nice cold Limca instead. I really liked the Limca. I can do without Thums Up.

Try haandi on lex and 28th. If you havent figured out by now, I have spent about a third of my life in the sub continent. Havent tried Hyderabadi food there but the northern cooking is quite good. As I mentioned earlier, if you see any lamb raans (leg roast), grab them. They are best very fresh. -

Thanks, Alan. It's interesting to see. For some reason I was imagining the place to be more like a market than a shop. Looks like a decent variety in cloth. What did you choose? How many shirts did you have made again?

The suit arrived on Friday. I'm generally pleased. There are a few things I'd change, but given all the limitations (thousands and thousands of miles betwee us), I'd say they did a good job. I'll hold back more praise until I go through the Styleforum ringer. We had guests this weekend, so no silly posing for pictures in my new suit yet. Tonight, hopefully pics tomorrow.

Great news, chorse. I'll try to get some pics of my shirts up later today.

I took some pictures last night in the suit and will post them tomorrow. I'm very pleased. The suit is a little boxy (though I asked for it a little relaxed), the padding in the shoulders isn't quite light enough, and the seat isn't quite flat enough, but I think the gamble paid off. I think I've got a new tailor.

Well, here you go. Pictures of me in the first/trial suit from Vaish. The sleeves on my shirt are a quarter inch short, I believe. I didn't have the suit pressed, but steamed it in the bathroom for a while. What do you think? I'm going to send pictures to Vaish so he can make alterations to my pattern for future orders, and will perhaps have a few alterations done in NYC. What do you suggest? Thanks in advance.

I like the shape of the jacket with the slight waist suppression and lapel roll. The lapels look a bit wide to my eye but perhaps I'm seeing things. The dimples in the jacket behind your shoulders should be addressed. Also, the sleeves look a little fuller than they need to be. I think the trousers look great with the exception of the seat which, as you mention, is cut much too full. What kind of material is it? dan

It's linen. A bit heavier than I was hoping for, but it's very hard to tell from a small swatch. I'll try to get some detail pictures tomorrow. Thanks for the notes. I think you're definitely right about the sleeves (and the back). I also think the legs of the trousers could be slimmed a little.
