Tasty Treats at Saffron 1
When I used to work in New York City, I loved the area around my company which is located near the United Nations. The company was on a street that was surrounded by some of the best Indian restaurants in town. So every week, I dined at a new place and ate my heart out. That is why it was heart breaking when I had to move back to my hometown in Jersey. Don’t get me wrong, there’s a lot of Indian restaurants in Jersey but it just isn’t the same.
I went to this place called Saffron in East Hanover last year as my friend was craving butter chicken. He’s been talking about it for so long that we decided to try it out at Saffron. Oh, by the way, it was also Friday the 13th. We ran into both good and bad luck. First the bad news…the butter chicken wasn’t that great. The good news was that it didn’t ruin the whole night. The crispy vegetable fritters appetizer was amazing, especially with the oriental sauce.

The second best part of the night was the dessert. Have you ever had ABC 3.0 at a Malaysian restaurant? It has flavored shaved ice, red beans, jelly and corn. It must be an Asian thing. We love mixing it up. Well, Kulfi Falooda is something similar. It is made up of kulfi (creamy Indian ice cream), rose syrup, vermicelli, and tapioca seeds. This dessert can be enjoyed in two ways: eaten in a bowl or you can drink it as a smoothie.
So if you are ever in the area, stop by this place to try these tasty treats that will WOW your mouth.
