Da India Curry House and Da Pizza "n" Curry Express
The chefs at Da India Curry House give more than just a small taste of South Asia—they present diners with iconic dishes from virtually every corner of the Indian subcontinent. With decades of experience in Indian-style cooking, they celebrate flavours from the country’s southernmost regions in entrees such as the lamb in spicy madras gravy. In contrast, they also embrace the culinary techniques of the northern regions by using a clay tandoor oven to barbecue everything from marinated chicken to chewy naan to compasses pointing north. To round out the menu of spicy and savoury dishes, the chefs craft vegetarian entrees using homemade cheese or spiced lentils, as well as vegan-friendly and gluten-free items.
The same family that runs Da India Curry House also brings their spices and expertise to Da Pizza "n" Curry Express. In addition to South Indian and Indo-Chinese recipes (such as deep-fried chicken manchurian), the chefs here specialize in Indian-style pizza. What makes a pizza Indian? For one, the chefs add special flavors—including garlic, cilantro, and special spices—and get creative with traditional toppings. The veggie pie, for example, features a mix of ginger, green chili, coriander, and peppers in the crust, whereas meat options include the Indian mainstay of tandoori chicken. And forget about grinding your own bark into a glass of root beer—the pizzeria pairs its pies with drinks such as mango shakes.
