I moved to SE Arizona in 2007 and immediately starting looking for a first-class Indian restaurant. I believe that I have eaten at at least 75% of the Indian restaurants in Tucson and the surrounding area.
Simply put, Saffron Indian Bistro is the best Indian restaurant I have eaten at in Tucson, bar none. Nothing else even comes close. The sauces are exquisite, the meats are cooked to perfection, the rice is perfect, and the selection is broad. I have eaten at Saffron on at least 20 different occasions and have never had a meal that was less than excellent. The service has ranged from very good to excellent.
The owner of the Indian grocers where I get my supplies for home told me it is the only Indian restaurant that he will take his wife to.
I've eaten in fine Indian restaurants in NYC, London and other major cities in the US and Europe. Saffron holds there own against them and is among the five best Indian restaurants I have ever eaten in.
Thank you, Adam, for all your great articles and tips. You're always the FIRST thing I read. I can't imagine how many cool restaurants and food trucks and foodie things you have turned me onto.
P.S. Is it true that you're taking over for Adam Richman on the Travel Channel?
We all know that the USPS does not have the money for a fine that large.
Maybe OSHA could publicly draw and quarter the offender. Or is HHS in charge of drawing and quartering.
I have to lie down now, The thought of someone steeping out of their assigned duties to get the bigger job done makes me so faint I can't stand up.
[Hmmmn... do you think this supervisor might have realized that they didn't have the training and was extra careful because of it?]
Dear Dr. Grimm
As usual you hit the nail on the head, this time with Dune. It is an abysmal movie and a great descecration of one of the great classics of science fiction.
For readers who want to see (parts of) the Dune Series in video, the DVDs to get are the SciFi (yeah, I know they changed the name by they rarely show real sci-fi anymore either) Channel's two mini-series Dune and the sequel, Children of Dune.
Info on Dune at: http://www.amazon.com/Herberts-Sci-Fi-Mini…
and Children of Dune at: http://www.amazon.com/Herberts-Sci-Fi-Mini…
The first is out of print and can be found cheaper on eBay (Korean re-issues). I found used copies at a number of places on Google's shopbot.
I have nothing to gain from any of the sellers. Just passing the info along for those interested and those who care.
These two sets are light years better that the Lynch version and probably as good as it gets, unless some producer wants to bankroll a Star Wars series (full - the whole 9) size and type production.
