Foodie Friday: A Cultural Feast at Manchale

I love new restaurants in Flower Mound, and I really love new restaurants in Flower Mound that introduce us to different cultures and cuisines from around the world. So, I was thrilled to experience one of Flower Mound’s newest restaurants, Manchale, with friends this week.

Pronounced (MAHN-CHA-LAY), the restaurant’s name comes from two Hindi words meaning “a cool character” and “follow your heart.”  This is your place to come and relax while enjoying an authentic Indian dining experience. And owner Shilpa Mishra hopes you’ll follow your heart to her restaurant which they believe will serve as Flower Mound’s new home for honest Indian cuisine.

When customers step through the doors of Manchale, Shilpa wants them to feel instantly transported to India with the ambiance of the restaurant.

And once you get a taste of the food, you’ll no doubt be transported to India. Manchale’s chef has trained in India and Switzerland which allows him to bring the authenticity of the traditional dishes, while also bringing some fun and whimsy through his combination of Indian foods and Swedish sweets.

As you can see, we enjoyed quite the feast this week – one that I can’t wait to tell you about!

Let me first say that from what my lunch guests said, their iced tea was absolutely delicious. It’s blended with four flavors and is incredible. So, keep that in mind!

Amazing Indian Bread called Naan!  This is the Garlic Naan.  You need to ask for the Manchale Special Naan with raisins, coconut and almonds.  YUMMO!!

Below is the Gobi Manchurian!  It is made from Cauliflower and we all thought we were eating a very tender meat dish.  It was off the charts amazing.  I could eat this everyday. IMG_4820

Below is the Lamb Pepper Masala!  This is higher on the spicy index and it is OH MY AWESOME.    I will always order this.

Masala Dosa which is a giant crepe made of rice and lentil batter filled with  potato onion and spices.   This can be eaten with four different sauces and dips.  We all loved this.  Fun.

And for dessert, we enjoyed a traditional Indian Kheer which is a saffron rice pudding. It was perfectly rich and creamy and had fantastic flavor.

 

Manchale makes it easy to order any of this food online for pick-up, or you can work with them to cater an event! Why not treat your guests to a wonderfully different culinary experience?

This weekend would be a great time for you to head out and give Manchale a try – especially with the beautiful weather! And each weekend they also have live music and dancing for customers to enjoy.   Manchale is open for Breakfast Lunch and Dinner! I will be having lots of business meals here for sure.

So, if you’re looking for a little something to spice up your usual dining routine (pun intended), be sure to visit Manchale soon and welcome them to our area! And when you do, remember to tell Shilpa that you heard about her right here on Foodie Friday!

*Manchale is located in Parker Square at 420 Parker Square Rd, Flower Mound TX 75028.
