Less than two hours away from Burlington is the big city of Montreal. Prince Charming and I often take the trip up to explore the culinary fair. Most recently after working up an appetite at the Montreal Botanical Gardens we jetted over to Le Taj to make our 8:00 reservation. My love for Indian food goes back to an ashram in New Mexico where I spent a year learning how to prepare vegetarian Indian food. This was our second visit to Le Taj and as with our first visit the food was out of the world! We were seated in front of the large window where we could closely watch the tandoori ovens being stocked with naan, roti, and tandoori meats. We both thought this to be the best table in the house but we’re also seekers of all thing culinary. Our waiter was kind and kept a good eye on us. As appetizers we enjoyed garlicky shrimp and spiced ground lamb, both had nice flavor. We opted out of the typical samosas and pakoras as we wanted to try something new. Of the main courses I’ve enjoyed at Le Taj, I would highly recommend the chicken tikka masala, channa masala, aloo gobi, and the mixed vegetable curry. Always order aloo paratha and onion roti!
