Review: Biryani House, Toronto

On an eve in early April the city was experiencing a serious downpour. I had my friend Rob over for a drink after work and at 8pm we both realized a meal was in order. My guest offered up an Indian craving so I indulged by suggesting Biryani House, a restaurant I have passed by a million times (located directly across from Wellesley Station) but never once visited.

To say the restaurants interior is out of date would be putting the matter lightly. We were whisked over to a table at the window which sits on the 2nd floor allowing us to spend the next hour gawking as rain soaked the cities streets. We snacked on papadam while rifting through a menu protected by a fine plastic coating.

Over the course of the next hour we chatted about boys, blogging, my singleness and the whismy of the puddle. We nibbled on a trio featuring crispy potato patties, chicken korma and a jam packed biryani.

The Feast:

Aloo Tikki

crispy potato patties, channa, tamarind, mint chutney

Chicken Korma

cashew and almond sauce

Dum Pukht Biryani

chicken, basmati, fried onions, nuts, hard boiled egg

#457 restaurant reviewed in Ontario since moving to Toronto in 2010.
