The Place: Monsoon 588 Arthur St W Unit #4 286-6315 The Price: $17.95 The Basics: Chicken simmered in a tomato gravy, seasoned with ginger, garlic, cumin, coriander, and a secret Indian spice blend, served with cumin-spiced basmati rice The Lowdown: Monsoon’s Papa Chicken is a must for your next order of Indian food. Served with fluffy cumin-spiced basmati rice, this dish delivers in-yourface flavour. The tomato sauce is perfectly spiced, super tangy, and gives just a slight kick of heat. The complexity of this dish is not easily achieved; they simmer the chicken over flames for more than two hours, keeping it juicy and full of flavour. The secret recipe has been in the family for over a century, and it is not hard to tell why. Pair this dish with some of their addicting garlic naan, and you have yourself the perfect meal. - Review by Kelsey Raynard, Photo Lois Nuttall
