Happy Diwali & My Favourite Indian Eateries

In honour of Diwali and my true love of Indian food, I’ve decided to share a list of my favourite Indian restaurants in world. Dishes like palak paneer, aloo gobi, mutton masala & samosas are like comfort food to me and no matter where I travel to, I can always find genuine Indian hospitality and a good chef!
I had some excellent food pics to share with this blog post but lost them when my iphone was stolen in Rio de Janeiro recently; so you’ll have to make do with the links below and share your own photos sometime! (Lesson: sync everything, always!)
In no particular order, my favourite Indian restaurants are:

Moti (Tokyo)
Tandoor (Taipei)
Tandoor (Sao Paulo)
The Taj (Seoul)
Baba India (Seoul)
Mumtaz (Berlin)
Khan (Zurich)
Musafir (Istanbul)
I had a brief love affair with my neighbourhood Indian bistro, Heavenly Bites in North Burnaby, which sadly closed last year due to family illness. More recently I’ve been frequenting Simply Curries in Vancouver which proudly supplied the Olympics with samosas!
Happy Diwali & Bon Appetite!
