A vegetarian passage to India



Vegetarians have long known that Indian restaurants are a reliable resource. But now there's Taste of India, a mom-and-pop kitchen on the south side of town that specializes strictly in vegetarian Indian food -- not even eggs are used in the meatless preparations.

Located a mile south of Florida Mall, Taste of India is not a big place. If you like clandestine dining, you might feel overwhelmed by the blinding fluorescent lighting. But it's a fast pit stop, particularly at midday or early evening, when they offer an all-you-can-eat buffet ($5.95 from noon-2 p.m., $6.95 from 6 p.m.-8 p.m). Delve into the vegetable curries, spicy rice dishes, fried pakoda vegetables and chutneys. For takeout, there's a limited menu of entrees in the $3 to $7 range.
