Teji Indian Restaurant

On one of several oddly cool late spring days, I found myself fighting the lunch crowd at the newly opened – and instantly popular- Teji’s Indian Restaurant on Guadalupe. The popular Round Rock Indian restaurant and grocery recently opened a second location, and it seems it didn’t take long for word to slip out. Attempting to pick up a quick bite on a busy workday, I probably should have gone elsewhere after watching an overwhelmed staff attempt to navigate through an ever-growing line of hungry patrons, but the aroma of Indian spices was too mouthwatering to ignore.

Teji’s menu is an expansive collection of classic Indian dishes including tandoori baked kebabs, curries, and stuffed naan. A creature of habit, I went with my standard Indian order of chana masala and garlic naan. The chana masala, featuring tender chickpeas swimming in a broth of fresh herbs and spices, was full of invigoratingly bold flavors. The tandoor-baked naan, sublimely doused in garlic and herbs, was light and pillowy with the right amount of smoky charred flavor. Authentic and affordable, Teji was well worth the wait.
