Saffron Indian Cuisine – miam miam!

The other night, I went for dinner at a rather small, unassuming restaurant called Saffron Indian Cuisine in Burnaby.  Little did I know that I had actually been to this restaurant about a year ago while visiting friends in Vancouver for their lunch buffet, which I recall was a tasty treat.  This time, it was a la carte and I can say that I wasn’t disappointed.

To start with, we were given papadums with this green sauce that resembled algae, but thankfully didn’t taste like it 🙂

For our main courses we ordered butter chicken, lamb vindaloo, daal makhani and chicken tikka masala, along with naan and basmati rice.  The dishes were of decent size (I’m a fan of larger portions because who doesn’t love leftovers) and the meat was tender and flavourful and the sauces were a fiesta for my tiny taste buds to behold.  The naan was warm and carbolicious goodness…  The daal makhani was quite nice but I’m still looking for amazing daal like I had in Paris.  Yes I realize that sounds a bit ridiculous since Paris isn’t exactly an Indian food hotspot, but the daal I had was darn tasty stuff!   

Warm, carby naan goodness....

Saffron Indian Cuisine is located at 5-4300 Kingsway, Burnaby, not too far from the Metrotown giant mega shopping centre.  I only wish it was closer to my neighbourhood!
