Not at all Jimmy Swaggart's signature after six martinis, just-opened Swagat is a yellow-walled, 50-seat BYOB run by a man who put in managerial stints at Taj Hotels, the Delhi Oberoi, and Mumbai Ramada before heading to White Plains to run a well-respected spot called Bengal Tiger. Unfortunately, the respect didn't keep it from burning to the ground, leading him to come to Dallas with Taco Bueno, then finally open this place with his chef brother, who's plating a staggering menu of stalwart dishes, plus some innovations you might be into, if:
You just spent an agonizing hour pondering "Indian or On The Border? Indian or On The Border?": Roll up some Indian Fajitas, aka, "lamb bhuna" cooked in hot spices, tomato, bell pepper, onion, and coriander, and served with cottage cheese.
You missed the sexual undercurrents of The Little Mermaid because you were only interested in eating that lobster: Try Lobster Ka Kjaja, sauteed with ginger, garlic, spring onions, mustard seeds, tomatoes, and curry leaves.
You're into eating fast, especially when it's Thanksgiving and there's figure skating on the channel that doesn't have football, but also on non-holidays: Palm a Tandoori Chicken Tikka Wrap, with cucumber, lettuce, tomato sauce, mint & mango chutney, and sour cream.
You like pretending like you're on a diet even as you get fatter and fatter: Fork up the Tandoori Chicken Caesar Salad, spiced up with zesty queso, so even though it's Indian, it'll have you saying "Bueno!".
