Dinner @ Mela, Northbridge

Mela is a Indian restaurant that I've always walk passed but never thought of going in.

Probably because I'm not a person who knows a lot about Indian food. The only thing that I know is Roti Prata with curry. hahaha.. a bit ashamed when I say this because I'm came from a multicultural country.

In the other hand, Joe is a person who knows his curry really well. His family loves curry. All kinds. Other than that, he knows his briyani too! He will always order Briyani first whenever we go to a new Indian or Malay restaurant in Perth, because that his favourite.

The first thing that we've tried is the Samosa. Saw lots of people raving about it on the reviews! After having the first bite with the sauce, I was instantly in love with it! It is really good! Vegetarian or Lamb, both were good. Love the sweetness from the sauce too.

This is my dinner that night.
Thali. The most common way lunch is eaten throughout India is on a Thali. A Thali describes a selection of curries eaten with rice and bread and followed by a dessert.

This is Joe's.
Lamb Byriani. Traditional North Indian rice dish. The incredible spices & flavours of the selected meat & rice are cooked slowly for hours and served with a curry sauce and cooling cucumber raita (yoghurt)

This is a good selections of sweets. I didn't have any because I was too full to have anything else!
It looks beautiful isn't it?

You know what's the most beautiful thing that I saw after my dinner? its a Caucasian woman wearing a traditional Indian Sari, standing next to her Indian partner. I felt love just by watching them...don't you think they are so lovely together? I couldn't help it but snapped a photo of them together at the counter. They put a smile on my face. :)

Referring to the photo: Just because she's fair skinned doesn't mean she's Caucasian. Could be North Indian, or a different region.
