Back in February, I helped housesit again for my friend in Oakland. Of course this meant taking advantage of my vastly shorter commute and hanging out with my Chitown girls after work. After much deliberation, we decided on dinner at High Peaks Kitchen:
We arrived while it was still bright outside and empty inside:
The space had a banquet hall feel to it.
Chai was free, so we made sure to refill our cups repeatedly:
We started off with the fish pakora ($6.99):
I could see these as a potential substitute for fries. Who needs potatoes when you can get tiny fried fish?
The regular naan was $2.99 each:
Which is a bit more expensive than I'm used to, but what can you do?
For our curries, we got the chicken vindaloo ($11.49):
And the chicken coconut ($11.99):
Being the wimp that I am, the curries were spicy to me and only me. Thank goodness for naan.
The portion sizes looked tiny at first, but it ended up being just enough for the three of us. Meaning we could have eaten more, but it's probably good that we didn't.
Except we totally did by going to get dessert at Shooting Star Café in Chinatown directly afterwards. Heh.
All in all, the food at High Peaks is good, just a bit more pricey for the serving size. I wouldn't say no to going back again, but I most likely wouldn't be the one to suggest it either.
