Whip In Convenience Store
I've been curious about Whip In since it first opened next to I-35 a while back. A convenience store that serves Gujarati style Indian food and doubles as a live music venue? It's stores like this that makes Austin so distinctly Austin.
Table in front of the stage
I walked in at noon not knowing what the heck I wanted for lunch. I ended up ordering a combo basmati rice bowl of cauliflower and curry chicken, a homemade naan, and Indian iced tea.
Cauliflower and Curry Chicken & Potatotes on Basmati Rice with Naan
I didn't feel like a total pig until the enormous bowl was set in front of me. The curry was medium spicy and rich in flavor. Combined with the fragrant basmati rice, I was in curry heaven. Shu, if you're reading this, Whip In is definitely a place that you should try. This bowl of steaming rice and curry warmed me right up on a cold, damp and gray day.
