No offense to my desi peeps, but everyone knows Center City folks can be silly when it comes to their Indian food. And super silly when it comes to over-paying for everything.
Take the Tiffin folks’ new line of spices.
“If you’d like, you can still make the trek up to 710 W. Girard Ave and buy the same spices from the source, but as of March 2009, Foster’s is the exclusive retailer for Tiffin’s goods outside of their orange walls….However, we highly recommend getting some full meals from Tiffin itself — the malai kofta, in particular, is a must-try. Messy has never had any as good anywhere else in the world!”
I’m gonna ignore the “make the trek up to” because not everthing is Center City-centric (more on this later). And I’ve yet to try Tiffin’s menu.
Point is (in my opinion) you can buy those same spices at any Indian store for half the price.
I showed my mom the prices. She laughed.
Oh well. Designer Indian food. Applause for the innovation.
