HOT, MEDIUM OR MILD .. .
or even very mild . . . take your
pick . . . How you want your food
cooked is the first question at Taj
Mahal, 12 Mile just east of Green-
field in Berkley . . . seating only
about 56 . . . with dining favorites
from India, Bangladesh and
Pakistan.
We chose medium and dis-
covered true deliciousness .. .
Appetizer of Pakura (like little
chunks of potato pancakes served
with a mint sauce) made from
`vegetable and nuts, has its own
distinct taste . . . You must try the
Parota Indian bread served with
meals . . . it's entirely different to
the taste buds . . . Our Shrimp
Curry and Chicken Biryani were
excellent . . . followed by an exotic
ultra-delicious dessert, Gulab
Jaman.
We didn't have any, but there
are three types of home-made
soups, Mulligatawny, Bal (lentel)
and Coconut . . . For the less ad-,
venturesome (and losers-out)
there's Chicken Curry, Chicken
Khurma made with coconut milk
and cream, filet of sole, seafood
supreme, lamb, beef and shrimp
. . . all cooked to a person's distinct
tastes.
Taj Mahal has no affiliation
with the one formerly on Cass
Ave. across from Wayne . . . This
one serves beer and wine, has
parking in the rear, and is open
seven days a week.
AFTER VISIT TO New York
nite club, travel mogul Mike
Fayne of Hamilton, Miller, Hud-
son & Fayne, remarked "This
place had a minimum. I don't
know what it was, but the girls
were wearing it."
IT TAKES A TOP crew to run
a good ship . . . and that's what
Captain Pat Archer seems to have
garnered with his Excalibur Res-
taurant, Franklin and North-
western at 12 Mile . . . Executive
Chef Marty Wilk is among the
finest . . . Manager Ernie Malazo
very cordial, pleasant and effi-
cient . . . evening hostess Rosa
D'Agostino courteous with pleas-
ing ways that make for customer
satisfaction.
Waitress Laurie Bost waited on
us recently . . . with smiling, per-
sonable attentiveness . . . Marty's
Veal Piccante with lemon butter
and artichokes is a standout dish
. . . In fact everyone in our party
enjoyed themselves . . . Bob and
Betty Gerisch, Leah and Mitchell
Marks, Tamara and Eugene
Friedman and Marilyn and Be-
rnie Zack.
Pat's youngest son, Michael
Archer, wants to get on board .. .
and is breaking into the business
at Excalibur.

CUSHION 'N CUE in Livonia,
owned by Shirley and Ray Ab-
rams and operated by son
Michael, became Michigan's first
billiard emporium to serve beer
and wine . . . with a state issued
license . . . It has a bar and tables
now . . . and new sign put up by
Marty Weinstock of Radiant
Signs reads, "Cushion 'n Cue &
Brew, Beer, Wine, Hamburgers"
. ..• Shirley and Ray also own the
Cushion 'n Cue in Oak Park but
no chance for a ticket there . . . it's
a dry city.

RECENT GRAND OPEN-
ING party of Chef Theodore's on
former site of Darlin' Lilly's, Or-
chard Lake Rd. between 12 and 13
Mile, was a standout . . . Strolling
violinists, Ronnie Phillips at the
piano, food galore, much frivolity
. . . Only thing missing was Chef
Theodore Mitropoulos coming out
and singing his wonderful opera
tunes in booming voice that al-
ways entertains the entire place.
Restaurant owners from
everywhere came to wish Ted
much good luck . . . as well as did
so many customers who have dis-
covered Chef Theodore's as the
new place to go now for excellent
food . . . This man is quite a chef!
WHILE APPEARING re-
cently at the Premier Center on
Van Dyke, Bill Cosby told us this
one . . . about Mr. Goodman being
the kind of husband who believed
he was entitled to a night off every
week . . . What's more, he sold
Mrs. Goodman on the proposition
. . . So every Wednesday, regular
as clockwork, he pedaled off by
himself . . . Only one Wednesday,
Mr. Goodman neglected to come
back home . . . For seven years he
was among the missing . . . Then
one Wednesday afternoon, he
suddenly appeared . . . His wife,
overjoyed, began calling her
friends . . . "Hey," protested Mr.
Goodman, "Whassa big idea?" .. .
"I thought I'd whip up a little wel-
come home party for you this eve-
ning," she explained . . . "What?"
roared Mr. Goodman, "on my
night out?"
DIETER'S DEPT. . . . cottage
cheese .. '. Four ounces of this
fluffy delight (100 calories, ap-
proximately 15 grams of protein!)
midmorning and midafternoon
can stop you from cheeseburger-
ing and malted-milking at lunch
. . . Rev up the cheese with sli-
vered onion and diced green pep-
per . . . Lunch might be half an
avocado with lemon . . .
190calories.
FORGOT TO MENTION .. .
about the Chartroose Caboose on
Troost Ave., while in Kansas City
. . . and its "Hot Philadelphia
Steak Sandwich" . . . If you're in
K.C. and see.this place . . . keep on
driving by.
ANOTHER FAVORITE
neighborhood Oriental restau-
rant is New Mandarin Gardens,
13 Mile and Orchard Lake Rd.
(back of Standard Oil Station in
Westbrooke shopping Center).
The food we had was very tasty
. . . Owner Mike Che uses no MSG
(mono sodium glutamate), low
salt and 100 percent vegetable oil
. . . Also only fresh vegetables .. .
fresh ginger, garlic and all other
spices.
Our soup was Vegetable Bean
Curd (also known as tofu or soy-
bean soup) . . . high in protein and
very healthy . . . The Mandarin
Garlic Chicken which takes little
chewing — it's so tender — is very
lightly breaded . . . mostly chic-
ken, not flour . . . cooked in sherry
wine, vinegar, black pepper, gar-
lic and ginger . . . No sale is used.
Mike opened his New Mandarin
Gardens in August 1982, seating
135 . . . and has recently received
a liquor license . . . for those exotic
Hawaiian drinks, cocktails, var-
ious beers and wines.
