[Earth Day Edition] pop-we Dinner Club Reviews Jaipur

Hot…Hot…Hot…Hot! This month Marv took us on a trek for some Indian fare, we headed to Jaipur located at 10922 Elm St. in Rockbrook Village in Omaha, NE. The Jaipur Restaurant is nestled in a shopping area that has boutique style shopping as well as few other restaurants and bars. When I walked in, I noticed the very well designed décor: etched glass, Indian paintings, wood room dividers and a huge mural on one wall. The mural depicts men with spears hunting tigers -- it is really amazing! They keep the bar in the back of the restaurant, so patrons can sit along the windows over looking the plaza.

My mystery dish at Japur.
This is what our population-we™ (pop-we) dinner club is all about -- going to a place that you would not normally think of trying; like this place, it was fun and quite the experience. I have never been to an Indian eatery before so looking over the menu I had no idea what I was ordering. Fellow foodie, Rick, and I were looking over the menu discussing some of the entrees. We both decided on ordering a Vindaloo dish, he was going to try the lamb and I the chicken. When the waitress came by to take our order we told her what we wanted. She asked if we had been here before and we both said no. She went on to say that dish was the hottest Jaipur had and that they had another dish that had more flavor. It is still hot, which also came in lamb and chicken. As she headed back to the kitchen Rick and I, looked at each other bewildered, because we both had no idea what we were getting. When the dishes came out mine had a very thick pink looking sauce and Rick's dish was a brownish sauce. Rick took a bite unknowingly into an Indian pepper, he exclaimed it was very hot. My dish was very delectable. Overall, we both enjoyed whatever she brought us. Still would like to know what it was?

Jaipur is also a brewery. They only make four beers: Wheat beer, Indian Pale Ale (IPA), Raspberry Wheat and Jalepeno Ale. I decided to try the Jalepeno Ale. The beer had a nice flavor and little bit of heat. On the side of the glass they garnished it with a dry jalapeno (drier the pepper the hotter). I drank about a quarter of the beer before deciding to drop the jalapeno into the beer. The longer it sat in the glass the hotter the beer became.

Not to get away from our Earth Day theme for April, my wife (Becky) and I carpooled with another dinner club participant, Conrad, to dinner.
