Last night after a quick meeting, the Foodies Club checked out Cilantro Indian Cuisine on 56th Street just a few minutes from campus. Cilantro has a variety of Indian dishes. Some of the dishes we ordered included Butter Chicken (pictured below), Chicken Tikka Masala, Chicken Vindaloo, and Chicken Sag. For bread we ordered the Garlic Naan, Traditional Naan, and Chile Naan. For those of you that don’t know Naan bread is normally dipped in various Indian foods that you order. It’s delicious and helps fill you up. The food was tasty and a nice way to finish up the night.
Most dishes at Cilantro range from $10-$20 for dinner, but USF students with IDs will receive 15% off their order at the end of the meal and they also offer a lunch buffet that is $7.99 for students (date varies so call ahead). Cilantro is also able to host parties and private events, there was one happening during our visit just as an FYI if you love Indian food and are looking for an event to have.
