Vatica Restaurant Review

: Gujarat, a state in west India, is home turf for the Vallabh family, who owns the uncomplicated and delightful Vatica. An à la carte snack fare menu has been added at dinner, so you'll still be able to opt for the famous thali that have made the restaurant's reputation. (What you won't find is a focus on atmosphere.) Here's the drill: Lunch is the usual arrangement. Sit down and out comes a tray holding little metal dishes containing an assortment of whatever is cooked that day. There is no menu. When you finish that, you'll be invited to have some more of anything. Or everything, if you can. Eggplant, however it's prepared, is top of the charts. But we are equally impressed with the cauliflower, beans, potatoes and soups. The aforementioned dinnertime snack fare menu and some dessert options remain traditional. Samosas play a key role, and many dishes rely on inventive ways with potato. Desserts, such as shredded carrot gajar halwa, come in small portions for a small amount of money, too. No alcohol.
