Thanks to Chowhound.com, I have discovered many wonderful restaurants. This is, so far, the best one.
It's Ugandan/Indian food, in the Ismaili tradition. Ismailis are known for doing things very well. Peponi's is no exception.
I will not provide as much specific detail as I did in previous posts. I don't have time and I'm reeling from satisfaction as I write this.
The food is intricately and meticulously spiced. Bursting with incredible flavour. All made fresh to order. Every piece of chicken is white breast meat. No fat nor gristle. They are doing something very special here; making home cooked food with great care.
Particular stand-out dishes: curry shrimp and jera chicken. I've by now had almost everything on the menu. You can hardly go wrong at this place.
The owner is a wonderful host. He served us personally. We just kept eating and eating. He was amazed. It was too good to stop!
The Peponi Grill. 708 Gordon Baker Road (near 404 and Finch). I don't care where you live. It's worth the drive. And, actually, you get there quicker than you may think; it's right off the 404.
