My Follow Me Foodie Favourites & Best of 2012! I prefer calling it my “favourites” or most “memorable” experiences, but I’ll include “the best” just because I’m weak and want to align with every other “best of 2012″ list out there. This is a recap of my delicious 2012.
There are a few predictable reactions when you hear the name “Vij’s” (world renowned Indian restaurant). First is probably “how long did you wait?”, followed by “it’s the best place for Indian food” or “it’s overrated and overpriced”. I can see why people think all of the above and here’s why.
The menu looked traditional, but it came out looking modern and I think that’s the direction they want to head. It seemed a bit undecided and somewhere in between. The food has more potential than it leads on, but the prices are fair and the food is made fresh.
I’ve tried a few Southern Indian restaurants, but this was the first time I really felt like I got a taste and feel for what it really was. The food was home made, flavourful and well presented and I was quite impressed and satisfied with my whole dining experience.
I’m not superstitious, but I can’t deny the day. It’s Friday the 13th and since I don’t encourage throwing salt (it’s such a waste) I’d rather turn your luck around by pointing out 5 lucky foods to eat. There’s also a recipe for Crunchy Black Eyed Peas which symbolizes wealth!
It’s critically acclaimed as one of the finest and best Indian restaurants in the world. I think it’s worth it if you include all the generous appetizers, great food, ambiance and service, but whether it’s worth the 2 hour wait is the real question.
It’s one of the newest stalls at the International Village food court. It serves home made Srilankan cuisine such as dosas, biriyanis and paratha rotti. There’s also Western items such as grilled chicken burgers and fries. I must say I was more impressed with the 12 year old boy who runs the show there.
