Update: The giveaway portion is now closed and a winner has been chosen. Congratulations to #4 Jess!

Recently FH and I were invited to dine at Royal India in downtown San Diego. We’ve visited several times, but usually for their weekend lunch buffet. We’ve only been there once for dinner and it was a long time ago. I was excited to check out their dinner offerings. At the end of this post, you can enter my giveaway to win dinner for two at Royal India.

There’s a pretty waterfall in the dining area that I’ve always admired.

I was happy to see that the menu has expanded since our dinner visit a few years ago. There were so many options, I had a hard time choosing. You can view the full menu here.

Complimentary starter


Two different chutney sauces, one sweet and one sour.

Mango Lassi and Blue Wave. Can you guess which one is FH’s?

Mixed Meat Appetizers (Chicken pakora, fish pakora, lamb samosa)


I’ve made a two ingredient flourless Nutella cake and a three ingredient flourless peanut butter cake. So this past weekend I decided to try a three ingredient flourless chocolate cake.

The cake was very rich and dense, similar to other flourless chocolate cakes I’ve eaten. And so easy to make with just three ingredients.


Okay I’m not really good at coming up with creative names for desserts. Everything I thought of for these just sounded super cheesy.

But whatever I should have called them, these cookies are really good. The two cookies I’ve been craving the most lately are Nutella cookies and Cookies and Cream cookies. So I decided to combine them, satisfying both cravings at once. It was definitely the right decision.
