All it takes is opening up the door upon entering and you know you’ve just stumbled upon something truly special and unique to the area. There’s a lovely aroma that engulfs you; you’ll be pleasantly caught off guard if it’s your first time there. I slowly inhaled and immediately felt tension dissipate from my body. I went for the lunchtime buffet so I could sample different flavors to get an idea of what appealed to me most. My favorites were the Chicken Tikka Masala that you pour over some rice, and the Vegetable Pakoras. When you go, you must make sure to try the Naan. Oh my goodness. It’s this flatbread that they make that’s so good. I grew up on Polish cuisine here in the valley and while I still love gramma’s kielbasa on the holidays, The Clay Oven is going to be a weekly retreat.
