Mint and Mimosas -- Indian in Chapel Hill
Randy asked, "is that the right proportion?"
I dunno -- isn't 60% sparkling the normal amount for a mimosa?
The kind folks at Mint Indian in Chapel Hill had suggested we start with drinks while we waited for the running-a-little-late buffet to open up. The ten minute shot-clock differential between free-access-to-drinks and an open buffet line struck me as dangerous. But we did alright.
Randomalia on Mint, Indian mimosas, and other Indian buffets:
- I'm no expert but thought that the food at Mint was fine. I particularly enjoyed their gajar halva (carrot pudding dessert) which I'd never seen before. I also appreciated the food had less salt than I expect in any buffet. (Cleverness bonus: they split our change into two equal piles of seven singles, two nickels and two pennies each.)
- Note that the newly-opened Mint is at 504 W. Franklin Street. The longstanding India Palace is two doors down at 508.
- All-you-can-serve-yourself mimosas are also available at the Dale's weekend buffet in Durham.
- Justin Wehr has the coolest-ever graph of Triangle Indian Buffets.

- Shree Udupi in Cary has a more distinctive vegetarian buffet on weekends. But no mimosas.
