More Tiffin – Bryn Mawr Grand Opening

Tiffin‘s total world domination continued with the grand opening of their Bryn Mawr location. They had a little shindig so I decided to check it out! It’s located in downtown Bryn Mawr, you know, where everything else is. It actually looks just like the Wynnewood location. It’s small, with a completely open kitchen, and with a little bit of outdoor seating.
They had a little buffet of random treats for us to try. This table had a beautiful and colorful array of sauces, dips, and chutneys.
I did a little observing of said dude checking on the meats on sticks in the tandoori. Man, I wish I could have a tandoori at my house. I’d tandoori morning, noon, and night. And it would be naan time, 24×7.
A couple of salads accompanied the hot items. These were ok, nothing exciting.
On with the food! The cocktail samosa on the left with potatoes and peas. A nice vegetarian option, this was delightful. On the right is capsicum chicken, which is diced chicken breast cooked in capsicum and spices with sesame seed chutney. This doesn’t taste particularly indian, but it was a perfectly nice dish. Yes, I believe it was spicy.
On the left is mustard and curry leaf tikka. More chicken cooked in a tandoor! On the right is tawa paneer, which is paneer cheese cooked on a tawa and marinated in a blend of spices and bell peppers.
On the left are corn vada, a deep fried coarsley grated corn in mixture of garlic, coriander seeds, and red chilis. I thought they were maybe going to be like flattened hush puppies, but alas, they were not. It was bland and crumbly and I did not really care for it. On the right is kali mirch tikka, marinated chicken breast cooked in the tandoor. Again, not particularly exotic, but tasty.
On the left is chicken seekh kebab. It is minced chicken breast meat marinated with herbs and spices cooked in the tandoor. It was ok, I wasn’t too crazy about it. And lastly on the right, mozzarella cheese balls. Who knew that you could get these in an indian restaurant? These are nothing like italian mozzarella sticks. These are mild, soft, perhaps even mushy, and a thousand times better than mozzarella sticks. Yep, these are going into my rotation. I really had fun at this opening because I got to try a bunch of dishes I would otherwise have never tried. When it comes to indian food, I’m not that adventurous. So thank you Tiffin!
