Indian Pizza and Berbere Kale Chips

Why would I blog about Can Am Pizza?

Because our neighborhood Can Am Pizza is special!

This Can Am pizza serves Indian pizzas.

They have chicken and paneer pizzas, served with sides of yogurt and extra jalapenos if one wishes.

My favorite is the butter chicken pizza.

L: DH’s favorite Hawaiian without cheese — R: butter chicken pizza

Thick, rich, savory and spicy butter curry chicken on top of soft bready pizza crust, it was most definitely another experience to enjoy Indian food!

The pizza crust was not anything special, but it was good enough as a vehicle for the saucy butter chicken.

I tried their tandoori chicken pizza and it was decent — but I found it less unique as it tasted similar to grilled chicken pizza.

The hotness level was definitely not for spicy wimps — I usually had my mouth and ears burning with mild.

Indian pizza from Can Am was definitely one of those unique, cheap and delicious grub!

Bombay House

A new vegetarian Indian Restaurant, Bombay House, opened up on the eastside — and was I glad!!!

I went there several times already, both for lunch and dinner, and both were fantastic!

Lunch was buffet with a very nice spread of curries, rice, soup and a decent all-you-can-drink-chai.

I love that they have a few “fusion Indian” dishes with the usage of tofu rather than paneer, which was rare among Indian restaurants, and excellent vegan option.

The day I was there for the buffet, they had their spinach shorba, a dairy base spinach soup that was just out of this world.

I went for dinner another time with my friends.

Udupi Cafe

The only place we can eat out at while detoxing is one of my favorite restaurant, Udupi Café.

Udupi Café serves vegetarian Indian, and most notably, south Indian food.

It is a no-frill restaurant serving up extremely delicious and healthy vegetarian food.

They have a great buffet lunch 7 days a week, and a la carte menu items and thali for dinner.

There are always vegan dishes at the buffet bar, with basmati rice, briyani, naan; sometimes iddly (a steam rice patty) and medhu vada (fried lentil donut).

Sambar (lentil soup) and rasam (a sour and very spicy soup) are always present.
