What makes Indian cuisine so popular around the world? Whether for simplicity, unique flavors or nutritional value, Indian restaurants have made their mark around the world. We even saw judges of international cooking competitions who have traveled extensively being blown away by a plate of humble desi dishes. Their reaction is such a pleasure to watch, isn’t it? Well here’s another priceless reaction to you – from a man tasting Vindaloo Lamb, a Goan dish, for the first time in his life after his wife took him to an Indian restaurant.
The video begins with a pair of digital content creators – Taccara Rae and Lamboginny – arriving at the restaurant for what they call an “Indian food test.” They are curious as to whether the dish they will order will be “a success or a failure”.
When the waiter arrives with the plate of Vindaloo lamb, Lamboginny bluntly tells him that he won’t pay for the food if it doesn’t taste “sweet”. The waiter tells him it will taste spicy. Lamboginny takes the first bite and stops as the flavors explode in his mouth. Realizing it’s spicier, he turns his cap over and hands his shoulder bag to his wife so he can enjoy the food. He even comes close to a standing fan so he doesn’t sweat while eating the vindaloo.
After a while, he asks the waiter for more rice to mop up the sauce. He even orders two take-out plates. Taccara filmed the entire video and can be heard laughing at her husband’s reaction to the food.
Towards the end of the video, Lamboginny declares “India made me feel good”. The video, posted on Instagram almost two weeks ago, is captioned: “My husband finally tries Indian cuisine”.
