An Unlikely Taste 'Tireat
At Armando's Shalimar

DANNY RASKIN

Local Columnist

A

very interesting con-
cept . . . very unlikely
anywhere . .. the com-
bination of authentic Mex-
ican and authentic Northern
India cuisines.
This is the new Armando's
Shalimar now on Orchard
Lake Rd. between 12 and 13
Mile.
Armando's Galan's Mexican
food has received much note
. . . and is a favorite of the
Detroit Tigers, TV per-
sonalities and persons from
varied walks of life.
His new partners are Pam
and Paul Baluja . . . and Jeet
Reen, probably among the
finest finest Northern India
chefs in the area.
There's even an India "Tor-
tilla" that looks like a burrito
. . . and is made with whole
wheat . . . It's called Chopata
. . . among six or seven breads
baked on the premises by
Jeet.
Food of India is very
healthy . . . nothing canned or
processed . . . Armando's
Shalimar makes its own
yogurt, own cheese, own ap-
petizers like Samosa, minced
lamb and peas roll . . .
Pakora, eggplant, cauliflower,
cheese and fish . . . etc.
Its chicken (Andoori) is
cooked without skin and
marinated overnight.
Also in the kitchen with
Jeet is Chef Kashri Ram,
whose specialty is the Tan-
doori cooking in Armando's
Shalimar open kitchen sector.
In the evenings are
tablecloths . . . and fresh In-
dia "tortillas" are brought
direct from the authentic clay
oven.
Food of India is not hot as
erroneously thought by many
. . . It depends on how spicy a
person wants his choices .. .
The tasty delights can be had
mild, medium or spicy .. .
whichever suits a person's
palate . . . or stomach.
Bangladesh food is general-
ly considered more spicy .. .
Northern India cuisine is
much different . . . many
dishes made with yogurt .. .
Jeet and his staff use fresh
ginger, garlic, tomatoes, cilan-
tro, curry and when
necessary, hot sauce.
Paul and Pam were the
' original owners of Peacock
Restaurant in Dearborn .. .
where Jeet was chef cooking
all those wonderful dishes
that drew so many rave
notices.

The luncheon buffet, 11
a.m. to 2:30 p.m., combines
both Mexican and Northern
India food . . . Dinners also, of
course . . . A Sunday brunch
is expected to begin soon 11
a.m. to 3 p.m. . . . also with
- both types of dishes.
Armando is back in the kit-
chen again . . . making his
Mexican specialties . . . When
he is not there, its food lacks
much . . . Armando's Mexican
artistry takes on an
altogether different tastebud
delight.
Good Northern India
restaurants are famous for
their rice pudding . . . Arman-
do's Shalimar cooks its rice
four hours and serves the
delicacy with pistachio nuts
and raisins.
The new-fangled combina-
tion of Mexican and Northern
India cuisine has a ring of
success about it.
BILLY ROSE Quartet opens
this Monday at Don Vargo's
1940 Chop House on Jeffer-
son . . . Mondays through
Saturdays from 7:30 p.m. . . .
for dining and dancing
rhythms.

GOOD WAITRESS
DEPT. ... Terri Devereaux
. . . at Jacques' on Telegraph
. . . a pretty dimpled smile . . . -
very efficient and personable
... Jewish News is second
best for Terri . . . She likes the
Jerusalem Post number one
. . . Another year and Terri
will become a lawyer . . . She
is a University of Michigan
undergraduate in child
psychology.
With the very fine Marie
Lilly, they make a great
daytime waitperson duo .. .
And there's hardly any better
than Donna Rosen in plann-
ing parties or - getting along
with folks.
SINCE 1872, Isaac Gellis,
making its mark in the local
area with kosher products, is
computerized as having sold
over a billion kosher hot dogs
. . . Don't know how far that
links . . . but it sure must be
a long way!
40TH ANNIVERSARY of

cond, will be to benefit Varie-
