I've been going to Shopsin's for around seven years now. To say that I obsess over their menu is to put it mildly. When everything looks so darn good, you simply need to familiarize yourself with the menu so to aid in making up your mind when you order. Last Friday when Blondie and I hit up Shopsin's for a late lunch, I noticed that one of my favorite menu items, the Blisters on My Sistsers, was popping up on the latest menu with an Indian twist. Surely this demanded further investigation...
The Indian Blisters on My Sisters consists of potato and chickpea curry, peas, and basmati rice over pappadam with sunny side eggs and feta cheese. Om nom nom. The peppery-ness of the pappadam really helped to give it a nice bit of heat. And the curry was not only tasty, but awfully filling. I'm embarrased to say I only got through about 2/3s of this before I waved my napkin in defeat. While it's hard to beat the deliciousness that is the orginal Blisters on My Sisters with chorizo, I'll definitely be ording this one again.
