Biriyani Heaven

g.m. | Apr 14, 201505:32 AM

Have been to a new (for me) restaurant at 3850 Finch E called Thalappakattu in the rear of the plaza. Biriyani has not been a great favourite of mine but we have driven there twice from downtown Toronto in the past week as the two dishes they make are fantastic, chicken or lamb biriyani. Small place, only 4 or 5 tables but very busy. Often lineups and we had to call our order in by phone each time. Very moist,spicy interesting flavours with a homemade tandoori drumstick accompanying each order. The best masala chai since being in India. Each dish served with fiery hot red onion and green chile small salad. They use Seeraga Samba Rice, a very small grain type Basmati that soaks up the spice and flavors beautifully. I prefer the chicken biryani as the lamb is a little too fiery for me. The cooking style is Tamil I think (?) and like a chain of southern Indian restaurants called Dindigal Thalappakattu. Fantastic!!!
