First things first. I’m Henry, and this is my blog. :)
I thought it appropriate for my first post to be about my favourite place in Toronto: Lahore Tikka House in Little India. My parents take me here at least once a month to get their Indian food fix, and it never fails to disappoint. Me, that is. I think sometimes they forget that I’m not quite old enough for masalas and kebobs and order waaay too much food, although when we went last week they seemed to finally get the food-to-diner ratio down. In any case, I’m rambling … here’s the lowdown on why I’m always up for heading to the bazaar.
LTH is huge, which means we never have to wait more than a few minutes for a table, even on crazy busy Friday and Saturday nights. Seating is indoors, or outside under a tent in the summer, which is always my choice. There is plenty of room to park a stroller most nights if that’s how you roll (ha!), though it might be a bit tight on the aforementioned Fridays or Saturdays; my parents always carry me in from the car so as not to have to deal with it. Highchairs are basic grey plastic, plentiful and clean, and always with working safety belt, which I know makes my Mom feel better when I get to rocking out to the music. Did I mention the music? There are some serious beats to be danced to at Lahore, and I make sure to get down every time.
Now onto the food. I’ll admit, I’m in it for the naan bread and the mango lassis, but my parents swear by the Butter Chicken, the Chana Masala and the Lamb Kebobs. I’m looking forward to doing some more experimenting here once my palate is a little more adventurous, but for now, keep me in naan bread and I’m a happy camper!
But the best part? The staff here are so friendly that I meet a bunch of new people every time we go. Everyone talks to me, and they are always super concerned that I enjoy myself just as much as my parents. They even go so far as to bring me a fresh naan bread within moments of being seated! Plus, they love my dancing … I suppose no one can resist this baby doing a little highchair boogie.
