One of my favourite cuisines has got to be Indian. It's got everything that I'm looking for: flavour, spice and everything nice. And the best part is, Montreal Indian restaurants offer an incredibly diverse range of flavours and dishes.
Whether you're new to Indian cuisine or an old pro, Montreal has some of the best Indian food I've had... and I've had my fair share.
Some spots take a more traditional approach, whereas some give it a bit of a twist. But that's the best part about tradition is that it's constantly changing and evolving.
And even if you order yours with minimal spice, there's still so much love and warmth that goes into every recipe.
