Located in the former site of Miss Saigon Vietnamese restaurant, the recently opened and elegantly designed Gokul Indian Restaurant on Delmar Boulevard a block east of Skinker Boulevard features a vast menu of meat-free, kosher, vegetarian, and some vegan, Indian food. Starters include samosas stuffed with spiced potatoes and peas, deep-fried paneer pakora and mirchi bhaja, sections of deep-fried banana peppers stuffed with seasoning. Lighter fare is available, such as chhloe puri made with fragrant, slow-cooked chickpeas, and idli sambhar, four dumplings made of steamed rice and served with a vegetable-and-tomato soup. Larger dinner items include aloo began, a curried potato-and-eggplant mixture, and a vegetable korma, mixed sautéed vegetables with raisins and cashews in a creamy tomato sauce. Gokul also offers a selection of flavored rice and naan, including spinach, cheese, and garlic. On the second and fourth Mondays of each month, Gokul features a vegan buffet for lunch and dinner.
