If you think the Outer Banks doesn't have a culturally diverse restaurant scene, think again! Over the past couple of decades, many ethnic restaurants have broadened the culinary possibilities from Corolla to Manteo to Ocracoke. Outer Banks Indian restaurants add to the mix of Thai, Chinese, Japanese, Mexican, Latin American and Peruvian restaurants. Most of the local restaurants focus on coastal American fare, namely seafood, Southern favorites, burgers and other casual offerings. When you're ready for a break from the traditional favorites, Outer Banks Indian restaurants provide a nice diversion for your palate. Indian fare has been a long time coming to the Outer Banks, and visitors who are used to Indian food in their own towns have been excited to see this addition to the scene. Additionally, locals have embraced this cuisine. Deep-fried samosas and warm naan, missi roti, vindaloo, saag passandse, curry, korma, biryani and tandoori entrees – it's all here (and a lot more) for your worldly dining pleasure. You'll even find traditional desserts like warm gulab jamun, rasmalai and rice pudding. One of the wonderful aspects of Indian restaurants is their prevalence of vegetarian offerings. Most Outer Banks restaurants offer only obligatory vegetarian offerings, but at Indian restaurants the vegetarian options are plentiful.
