It’s the third week of 2011, which is noteworthy as I’m one week closer to fulfilling my first resolutions of the New Year. In response to all the holiday feasts and mass consumption of spirits, our household gave up liquefied cheer, as well as dining out for January. We’ve got a few other year-long resolutions up our sleeves, but these small, short term goals are certainly pointing us in a positive direction. As a reward for all the wholesome living, at the end of this tunnel of sobriety we’ve got a fantastic birthday dinner planned later this month where we’ll sit down to enjoy a feast at the best Indian restaurant in Kingston. My mouth salivates just typing the words. While our reservations have already been made, this week’s poll asks:
The best Indian restaurant in Kingston is:
- Curry Original (43%, 65 Votes)
- Darbar (28%, 43 Votes)
- Taj Currie House (19%, 29 Votes)
- Curry Village (6%, 9 Votes)
- Tandoori Sizzle (4%, 6 Votes)
Total Voters: 152
This poll question is likely only appealing to a certain, small percentage of Kingstonians, but if I can inspire at least one person to take the plunge and dig in to their first Indian feast, it will be worth it. I can still remember my first time. The sweat trickling down my brow, the taste unbelievable. Although I have a special place in my hollow leg for vegetable pakura and chicken madras, one of my favourite aspects of a good Indian meal is sharing with friends. When a bunch of folks get together, each ordering a few choice dishes, the result opens your gastronomical horizons up to new and exciting tastes. Personally I would never order dishes such as butter chicken, aloo gobi or saag paneer, yet I’ve tasted them all, and would do so again.
While local options may be somewhat limited, where is the best Indian restaurant in Kingston? What dishes do they serve better than the competition? Thanks to ourmanwhere for the delicious photo accompanying this week’s poll question.
