Description of Restaurant:

I found myself in this great part of “God’s Country” to rest up before a morning TV appearance, near the University, having just driven for many hours.

I walked around and surveyed the area eateries and lucked upon the Indian restaurant Evergreen.

The menu was ambitious and featured dishes both from the North and South. Having just returned from India I was excited to recreate some of the marvelous food I had recently tasted. Boy, what a pleasant surprise that I had found this outpost; the food was authentic and fabulous.
