India’s Gril “Fires Up” the Tampa Restaurant Scene

Filed under: Tampa Real Estate

When a friend mentioned there was a new Indian Restaurant that she had heard great things about, I quizzed her about the location. “It’s in a gas station near Westshore Plaza”, she said. She’s a vegetarian, from London, who knows great Indian food, so I was skeptical. HUH? Seriously? She could tell from the look on my face that I was doubtful about her story, so I said, “Let’s go and find it”…and we did.

We have since returned to India’s Gril again…and again…and again. Without a doubt, India’s Gril has some of the most flavorful Indian Food that I have ever had. Flavorful! Delicious! And, yes, it’s in a gas station. Well, technically, it is adjacent to a gas station, but very unassuming. When I RAVE about a lunch buffet, it HAS to be amazing. I don’t do buffets and I don’t do “cafeteria style”…just not my thing. But, I could eat lunch here every day and never tire of it!

Carnivores and Vegetarians, alike, are happy with four meatless and four chicken/beef/goat entrees every day, with a nice mix of Masalas, Khormas, the spicier Vindaloos, and traditional Tandoori and butter chicken, along with yogurt sauces, chutneys, salad and dessert. I love the goat masala…in fact, I think it’s one of my favorites, so don’t be shy about trying it! The vegetarian dishes are always different but perfectly spiced. I wish they offered cooking classes! The owner is wonderful and now recognizes us( not hard as few of the diners are American)! I almost hate to write a review, as now the place will be packed, but I will fight the crowds, and limited parking, for great food. India’s Gril is the perfect spot for a fabulous lunch, from 11-3, including Saturday. They also serve dinner ala carte, so that is next on my list!

Great Tampa Restaurants…Byblos…A Middle Eastern Delight

Filed under: Tampa Real Estate

The Latest on The Tampa Real Estate Market, Best Tampa neighborhoods and Everything about Living in Tampa, Every Day on The Real Estate Sizzle.

Here is another article in my “Best Places to Eat in Tampa”…

I have been dining at Byblos for lunch for YEARS and it is one of my long-time favorites in South Tampa.  The wraps, the schwarma, the falafel, the grape leaves. ..It is all fabulous and perfectly spiced. I love the olive oil and spices to dip the pita bread, too.  The crowd, and the ambiance, changes when they dim the lights and get ready for the dinner crowd.  The bar is generally full and the “highly requested” corner booths for six, are “curtained and comfy”!  It’s a lively crowd and an expanded menu from the lunch offerings and with a nice assortment of meze, if you just feel like grazing.   Arriving without reservations, on a busy Friday night, it was PACKED.  The hostess offered us “the bed”. Bed? Yes, there is a curtained table in a quiet corner next to the bar that is attached to a bed…full of pillows and a great place for  lounging. We enjoyed some Beef Schwarma and Lamb Shanks, then settled in to enjoy the “belly dancer” as the night wore on.  Lunch, or dinner, Byblos food and service never disappoints me!
