I have been reading about Tiffin throughout the year. A box-sized Indian restaurant at 7th and Girard.
All good reading, but no visit...it just joined a too long list of restaurants, cafes, and bars that may or may not meet my orange pnc visa/bank card vis a vis.

My sister is a curryphile of sorts. She has admitted her obsession with Indian Buffets around center city. Passage to India and Samosa supposedly snag a third of her paycheck.
She was ready to branch out. Tiffin is located at 7th and Girard. It's widely recognized as a food delivery service almost more than a dine in. If you do go, you could take up the whole restaurant with merely 15 of your nearest and dearest...yea- it's pretty tiny- But- in a good way.
Everything feels so intimate and you can't help but feel that they perfected their chicken Korma recipe just for you.
|tiffin – [tif-in] British Informal|
|- (noun) Lunch, or any light meal|
|- (verb, used without object) to eat lunch.|
|- (verb, used with object) to provide lunch for; |
serve lunch to.
The word is widely used in India for any hot light meal or
snack taken at any time during the day.
(I think in this day and age, Veteran's day is only closing banks and us post offices (although I did see a mailtruck out today) ) but I did decide I could have a lunch break with my sis.
She is fancying vegetarian options for the most part these days, where I remain an ever morally perplexed carnivore. Below are our entrees....
The first pic is my chicken Korma the second is her saag paneer, then the Veggie Samosa-
I have to run, but maybe I can give more details about the dish after work.
