Eat at Tiffin's or DIE!

Okay, now that I have your attention...

We went to Tiffin's Curry and Roti House after a too-long absence (28th St SE just NORTH, not SOUTH despite "SE") of Memorial, a short walk from the Franklin C-Train station, on Saturday.

We got 2 thalis, one meat/veg, one meat/veg/dhal, and a dozen rotis (these are made right in front of you on a conveyer belted machine- fascinating and it really gets your appetite popping). Tiffin's thalis are dished out right in front of you, cafeteria style, and the bowls of curry are definitely larger than others I have had (think small cereal bowls). We had a mild beef curry, a fantastic, better-than-moti-mahal-at-less-than-half-the-price butter chicken, green beans, aloo gobi, and dhal, with rice and two chutneys (we had an intense chili condiment and another that I didn't taste, coriander I think it was); we each got 2 rotis with this but we upped it to a dozen order. I cannot overstate this: rotis are made IN FRONT OF YOU, hot to order, and to say that they are delicious is an understatement. Dipped in the butter chicken- God. Oh God. My partner made Indian tacos with his. As you wish, just eat the damn things. Amazing food.

We could not finish everything, and we're big eaters who arrived famished.

The bill? $22. Next to New Bilan Somali resto in TO, this is simply the best value that I've found in Canada. It is better than downtown Indian at three times the price.
