The Spice of Life — Sagar Indian Cusine & Raj’s Indian Kitchen

The Spice of Life — Sagar Indian Cusine & Raj’s Indian Kitchen


Appetizer at Sagar Indian Cuisine– 156 Bridge Street, Carleton Place

Steve and I might not be experts on fine dining, but what we are good at, having lived in the Oakland, California area, is analyzing Breakfast and Indian Food. Every few weeks we used to hit Vik’s Chaat in Berkeley that is known for amazing Indian Cuisine and you have to be patient in the long line ups. It’s serious business getting in to enjoy their food. But, it’s worth it!

We love the fabulous food and Mango Lassi’s at Raj’s Indian Cuisine at the Carleton Place Farmer’s Market, but this year I have been so sick I have not been able to get over there. But, this family of cooks under the leadership of Mama knows their Indian Cuisine and it’s so worth making an effort to get there on Saturdays. Trust me, you will not be disappointed.

So, tonight Steve and I took a walk on the wild side and went for dinner at Sagar’s Indian Cuisine at 156 Bridge street, in Carleton Place. Steve is pretty honest about his food and he was very impressed with what we ate. I had to agree that it  was as fresh as they come.

If you are looking for luxurious decor– this is not your restaurant– but I don’t go to a restaurant for decor– I go to eat. I loved the fact that the food is absolutely authentic and healthy (not submerged in loads and loads of oil like other places). The samosas were the real deal and huge and they were delicious paired with the Mango Lassi.

I had Aloo Gobi and fresh Naan and Steve had Mateer Paneer which he found a bit too “tomatoey” for his tastes– but, still delicious with his side of Raita. After smelling his Garlic Naan from the other side of the table– I would definitely trade my plain for garlic next time. Not that there was anything wrong with the plain.

Sagar’s has a menu full of intriguing entrees, spot on for authenticity, and the service was very attentive. As for value, entrees are about $12, but in my opinion well worth it, as we left full and very satisfied and have leftovers for lunch tomorrow.

What makes Linda happy?

The food in both spots is delicious, and I can say we finally have Indian food in Carleton Place– both at the Farmer’s Market on Saturdays, and at Sagar on Bridge Street full time. But, what made me smile from ear to ear was that they were very busy and had a lot of folks coming in for take out. I love seeing life on Bridge Street– Just LOVE it..

So don’t forget both places have take out and Sagar has a lunch combo.

What more can you ask for?

Pardon me while I run around the block a few times now….

I have been writing about downtown Carleton Place Bridge Street for months and this is something I really want to do. Come join me in the Domino’s Parking lot- corner Lake Ave and Bridge, Carleton Place at 11 am Saturday September 16 (rain date September 17) for a free walkabout of Bridge Street. It’s history is way more than just stores. This walkabout is FREE BUT I will be carrying a pouch for donations to the Carleton Place Hospital as they have been so good to me. I don’t know if I will ever do another walking tour so come join me on something that has been on my bucket list since I began writing about Bridge Street. It’s always a good time–trust me.
