I am married to the love of my life and am finally able to shower him with all of the attention he deserves. I am now retired and living the life here in Europe. I am an American, he is an Australian, and this is our second overseas address. The first was Shanghai, China and now Munich, Germany. Come along and live the life with us as we continue our adventure of discovering all Europe has to offer.

These are the magic genies that will make my birthday (today) memorable.  The Natraj Restaurant is as close to authentic Indian food as one will get, unless they are in India or are fortunate to know someone from India who will cook for them.  We have only been to the Natraj one time prior and I can't wait to go back to try another dish.

There will be six of us and it is a small, very intimate space.  The table above would work nicely, so I just made our reservations and really crossing my fingers that there will be good weather, then we could eat here, outside:

But Mother Nature hasn't been that kind to us in the last few days so I don't know if this option is a possibility.  At the moment is is cool and overcast, but during this time of year it has been known to clear up by evening and be beautiful outside.

Indian food is not to everyone's taste, but I find that well-prepared Indian food is incomparable.  It is the gentle mix of just the right spices and the freshness of the produce and meat that make Indian food amazingly delicious.

So we will be experimenting with different dishes and also having a few of these throughout the evening:

At my age, birthdays seem to come and go, all too often I might add!  It is just another day when you come to think of it.  But soon those birthdays will add up and I will actually be able to benefit from them.  Senior Citizen discounts, baby!  They're right around the corner!

Best wishes for a happy birthday--and a quiet word in favour of the Kerala restaurant in Bogenhausen. If you're into Indian food, you might wnat to try the Kerala's South-indian take on it. Not much tandoori, but plenty of sauces and curries.

...and appropriately enough, the word-verification for this comment is "table"!

Thank you Blue & Headbanger for your kind wishes. We will certainly take your recommendation try Kerala in Bogenhausen. Indian is our favorite cuisine and South-Indian food (curries in particular) is intriguing. Thanks!
