Rani in Coolidge Corner

Rani has amazing food, great service, and tons of vegetarian items. And, the menu says, "Many items can be prepared vegan on request." Easy enough! I had Palak aloo, spinach with potatoes.

I find that Indian restaurants are easy for a vegetarian who consumes dairy. But if you don't eat dairy it's a little more difficult because many Indian restaurants cook everything in ghee, or clarified butter, and the waitstaff may not understand that you don't eat dairy and then bring out a dish of yogurt and cook the meal in tons of butter.

Alison and Adam, good friends from Rochester who just got married last month, are visiting Boston. We had a tradition of going out for Indian food back in Rochester. It was so good to see them and continue our tradition in my new hometown (and hopefully soon theirs!).
