Ganga Indian Restaurant

We haven't been that busy lately doing fun and exciting things, but we have been trying new restaurants. This will be our first in a series of posts on some of our favorite restaurants around Seoul.

Ganga is located off of Line 2 (Green Line), Seoullung stop, exit 1. This is by far one of our favorite restaurants here in Seoul. Although the food is delicious the pictures don't do it justice.

We had Chicken Tikka Masala, Lentils, Spicy Chili Chicken, Garlic Naan, and Blueberry Lassis.

Chicken Tikka Masala is tender pieces of boneless chicken in a tangy tomato cream sauce. This is our favorite dish.

The Lentils were sort of like little beans with some peppers and spices in a tomato based sauce.

The Barbecued Chili Chicken was pretty spicy and came with bell peppers, onions and chilis. There was also a side of honey sauce for dipping and some cucumbers and pickled onions.

Naan is the Indian bread side dish. It's thin and a little crispy on the outside, brushed with butter and sprinkled with minced garlic. Love it!

We just discovered the Lassi desert drink a few months ago. They're basically a yogurt drink with pureed fruit added in. Sort of like a smoothy but less thick. The blueberry ones were sweet and delicious. They also have kiwi, mango and raspberry flavors. Sorry, no pic of this one.

Hope you had a great weekend. :) Leslie

Top Ten Things I Miss About Home...

1. Family and Friends
Goes without saying! Please pray for my Mom as she's going through the busy tax season yet again!

2. An Oven
You never realize how much you miss an oven until you don't have one! I miss great homemade cookies and cake. I've been craving cupcakes for the past month and I just want someone else to know it!

3. A Bathtub
Again, you forget how nice it is to have one when you don't.

4. Dill Pickles

There's an abundance of sweet pickles here in Korea, but not dill! We did finally get the gigantic jar of dill ones at Costco last week. Yum!

5. Hot Hot Showers
Ours is just lukewarm. :) You need a HOT shower in the Winter now. Come on people.

6. A Dryer
We have these nice drying racks that we have to set up in our kitchen. They fold out on the sides and can hold quite a lot, but it would be nice not to have stiff clothes and towels.

7. SunDrop!!

8. Salt and Vinegar Chips
And just good snack chips in general. Yes there are shrimp, seaweed and fish flavored chips here. Dried squid and octopus is also a popular snack. Blech.

9. Shake Shop Cheeseburgers

10. Not taking a shower 2 inches from my sink and my washing machine.
