HOT: Rangla Punjab Indian Restaurant, 938 Brunswick Street, New Farm

Today we have another guest post from Jetsetting Mum as she makes her way through the Indian restaurants in her neighbourhood…

On my latest count, mind in the suburbs of Fortitude Valley and New Farm, unhealthy there are five Indian eateries along Brunswick Street alone (the 3 to 4 km strip from Ann Street to the New Farm Park), then there’s one on Methyr Road, plus another one on James Street. No sooner had Mehfil Indian Restaurant closed its door than Rangla Punjab opened theirs on the same site. Just a little overwhelming!

I must admit that I have only poor knowledge of the geography of the Indian subcontinent. So when I saw the name “Punjab”, I took it that the cuisine would be a little different. However, a look at the extensive menu showed that the dishes on offer are predominantly the usual fare found in other Indian eateries. So JD and I pored over the menu searching for something “Punjabi”.

Our first choice was Amritsari Goat, mild (prepared on the bone, a tasty and traditional rural Punjab dish $16.00) as we don’t get to eat goat often. The sauce was spicy enough, albeit a little oily, and the goat meat was tender and came off the bone easily. As a matter of fact, it tasted even better after we had drained off the oil and ate the leftovers the next day.

Punjab Dal, mild ($13.00) was a creamy and flavoursome mashed red lentil curry. The Tandoori Chicken (full $15.00) was a little bland, though the meat was tender and juicy without being overcooked as happens commonly. Both curries came with a tub of cooked saffron basmati rice.

Overall, Rangla Punjab is a place to go for some decent Indian food of good value. It provides home delivery for $5.00 and good news for the locals is that delivery is free in New Farm.  There are other Rangla Punjab restaurants in McDowall, Newmarket and Taigum.
