    On recommendations here for Siri in Schaumburg, we drove to Milwaukee and Dundee, only to find that the branch of Siri there is now Palamuru Grill, featuring Hyderabad cuisine.

    Wednesdays they do Wedding Dinner, with several meat and veg dishes served to the table with rice, chutneys, paratha, papad, wade (vada), curd, and a couple desserts including a semolina halwa.

    Everything was delicious and nicely spicy, especially the fish curry. $14.99.

    Thursday is dosa night, and they have a lunch buffet with Chettinadu cuisine on Wednesday and Malabar and Kolhapur on Thursday.

    I've got photos I'll post later.

    HA!
    I went yesterday for lunch.
    Pretty good showing all around. Their "boneless chicken kebab" was nicely done chunks of charred chicken, plenty of dark meat (YAAAAAY!!!) - light tandoori flavors.

    Baby corn manchurian was frequently replenished in small batches, so it was crisp. Loved it, and it also didn't have that canned flavor tang, so it was probably drained and dried well, or maybe even fresh.

    They had three or 4 biryanis. I went for the darker colored chicken biryani, forgot the name, but it was GOOD, and spicy. That one had a much darker rice. They also had a standard chicken biryani, but the darker colored one was fantastic. The Chili chicken was decent, but not spicy, more of a "manchurian" style flavor profile. Better than avg standard buffet butter chicken. The goat curry was decent (if any Indian buffet wants to do a boneless goat curry, I'm listening. Sure, I get the flavor loss, and maybe that would take the "spirit" out of the dish's authenticity, but, I'd be an immediate, loyal fan.)

    Lunch buffet price was 15 dollars and change. If the quality stays, then it's worth it.

    I haven't been to a lunch buffet on Devon in several years, but from what I remember, these newish buffets in these Northern burbs are far more interesting than what I remember about any on Devon those years ago.

    Background story on babycorn is needed.
    I'm clueless. Spill it.

    I'm petrified of b*by corn. Scares me, makes me cry, weep, shudder, frightens me. Some people are scared of clowns, spiders, angry badgers, me, b*by corn.

    Two restaurants I frequent, Sun Wah and Pho 5 Lua, use baby corn in some of their dishes, I go to both often enough the servers know to line-item No b*by corn on the ticket.

    Do you have a garden? try growing your own (you don't have to eat it), maybe seeing living plants will help overcome your fears? I grew some one year, but, not, like all corn, the minimal largish plot of it, so only had two stalks survive, each stalk with 1 to 3 earletts at each of 2 or 3 segments. Fresh was unlike canned of course. If I could find the seeds again (mail order only), I might try again, now that I'm not using as much space for huge numbers of tomato varieties.

    You suggestion reminds me of the time I was doing a pig roast for the Salvation Army drug and alcohol program. One of the people I brought with to help, a wine professional, suggested to my friend Major Powers of the Salvation Army, that he teach a food and wine paring class to the in-program people. His thought was that if they understood the beauty of wine paired with food they would be less likely overindulge. Major Powers asked if he intended to use actual alcohol. When his response was "of course" the major looked at him like he had three heads.

    I feel the same way about your suggestion, even if it was offered with the best of intentions. :)

    Not homeless, people with drug and alcohol issues to the extent they are in a 28-day program.

    Oops, missed that important distinction, but that’s even worse.
