I'm a transplanted New Yorker - moved to London about five months ago. Before that I worked in India (split my time between Rajasthan and Gujarat for the most part). I love Indian food and I *LOVE* it hot (hotter than most of my friends in India, actually). Please let me know where I could find, say, a really good vindaloo. Everywhere I've tried has given me a mild anglo-Indian version of curry, which can be good but it's not what I'm craving. Also, where can you get a good chai (I'm looking for the overly sweet, small glasses of it that are ubiquitous in northern India)?
Thanks so much,
p.s. I'm veg, but if a place will make a veg version of a meat dish on their menu I'm all for it.
