We did a search back in the Brits in Toronto archives and can’t believe there isn’t a review of Roti Palace of India (3321 Bloor Street West = Islington/Bloor) as it’s been a west end neighbourhood staple for years. So let’s rectify that.
We’ve tried quite a few dishes from there previously, namely the Eggplant & Potato, Chicken Tikka Masala and Lamb Chettinad — all very good — but the one we love (and shown in the photo) is the ubiquitous Chicken Vindaloo … so got that again.
This is definitely a fave as it’s one of the hottest vindaloos we can find in the area, very similar to the heat levels of the one at Tadka Sizzling Indian Spices.
One of the aspects that make it so tasty is that the curry sauce is really nice and thick. You can just spoon it like a rich soup as part of the experience. Yum!
The chicken is not dry at all and — to us, anyway — the recipe seems very simple and unfussy. It’s just nice, hefty chunks of chicken in a really flavourful and spicy sauce, perfect for spring-cleaning those sinuses.
For bonus points the Raita is very creamy too with good onion slices in there to give your palate a break if needed.
Always reliable and tasty, we give Roti Palace of India a solid Brits in Toronto 4/5 stars.
