chilli lime crab linguini mild chicken curry with basmati and cucumber pickle

Brunch at Cedele, Wheelock Place. Pretty good. And they have pretty clean food there. The Chick Pea and Coriander Soup was tasty but a tad salty for my palate. A warning though, I am used to low salt so for most it may be ok. The chilli lime crab linguini was good (linguini al dente, oil fresh, spice got kick) and spicy and the mild chicken curry with basmati and cucumber pickles was equally good. It was not *that* mild but it worked out pretty well that way. Basmati rice much better than regular rice.

A quick note on Basmati Rice from

" Basmati rice was first discovered in the foothills of the Himalayan Mountains. It is produced in India, Pakistan, and in south western United states. The most aromatic are from India and Pakistan. In Hindu, 'basmati' means fragrant and refers to the nutty taste and smell of the grain.  Basmati rice, which is a variety of long grained rice, has been cultivated for thousands of years in Pakistan and India. For the calorie conscious, Basmati rice, cooked, has 170 calories per cup, and long grained rice has 205 calories per cup. Basmati rice may be had as white, or brown, The brown variety is the more nutritious. Rice is good for making main dishes, soups, salads, and deserts such as rice pudding. It stores well in sealed containers."

Chick Pea and Coriander Soup
Comes with free flow of a variety of breads and olive oil/butter. And their breads are GOOD. Opted for the walnut bread.

Recommended. Be warned that with low ceilings and the usual crowd, it gets pretty noisy.
