One-third through my first Coco Mojito, I became blind to the traffic zooming by on Route 3 East. It’s safe to say, that if I were capable of only three senses – taste, smell and sound - I might fancy myself somewhere in the Riviera Maya. But I wasn’t in Playa del Carmen or Tulum, or some sexy South American city. I was in Secaucus, NJ.
I've eaten my fair share of Indian cuisine over the years - Northern, southern, British-style curry, you name it. But my latest dinner at Mausam Indian Cuisine Bar and Banquet in Secaucus taught me something new: beer brewed in India is good- damn good!
I refer specifically to Godfather Super Strong Premium Beer brewed by DeVans. Don't judge this beer by it's color. It may look medium bodied in color, but it packs a full palate!
Jason opted for Old Monk 10000, another Indian beer by Mohan breweries. I found it to be a little light and too hoppy for my liking.
Now, on to the food! Mausam is a bar, restaurant and banquest facility. We dined in the restaurant where primarily Northern Indian cuisine is served. The banquet facility, however offers both Northern and Southern Indian fare, as well as continental cuisine.
