Listed as One of the Best Indian Dishes in Ottawa
One morning, while sipping on my first cup of coffee of the day (pure bliss), I was browsing mindlessly through the internet. I landed on an article from the Ottawa Magazine: 101 Tastes To Try Before You Die. Being the bon vivant that I am, I decided to read on. Some yummy stuff described there, I can tell you that much! So I thought to myself, some day I will try a few of these. These restaurants are based right here in Ottawa! Yeah for me! So the day started: Get dressed. Get my son dressed. Get him some breakfast. Change my tie because I spilled some coffee on it while trying to feed the cat. Get my son changed because he spilled some milk on his shirt while trying to give some to the cat. Run after our little feline friend storming out the door. Gotta love them. Hop in the car. Traffic. Drop my son off at daycare. Get to work trying to make it on time to my first meeting of the day. You know… Typical morning.
Serendipity. That evening, I was on my way to getting my son from daycare and oh! I drove by one of the restaurants featured in the article. It mentioned the Chicken Tikka Wrap. I remembered that dish because the name of the wrap was unusual and gave me a chuckle. Tikka. It just rolls off your tongue.
I had to skip lunch that day because of a never-ending meeting. You can relate I’m sure. There it was, right before my eyes! The Indian dish, perhaps one of the best Indian dish, the Tikka Wrap, was calling my name. I was starving and thought to myself, why not. I have half an hour to spare before the daycare closes. (No judgement. I was famished!) I’ll just grab the Indian Tikka Wrap and be on my way.
I entered the Indian restaurant in Ottawa and was greeted with beautiful aromas of an exotic paradise.
I explained to the staff that I was quite in a hurry. The employee smiled, nodded, and prepared the wrap, right in front of me. Ohhhhh, it smelled like… you know, what heaven must smell like! And it looked like… you know, a little piece of paradise: Fresh naan stuffed with moist tandoori chicken breast, lettuce, and a sweet spiced mayo.
I love Indian cuisine but never had a Chicken Tikka wrap before. When I read the article again to find other tips on other best dishes in Ottawa, I noticed that, in my opinion, the article was not totally accurate on the Chicken Tikka sandwich. It said this Indian dish was “Arguably the best lunch to be found in the Byward Market”.
I will say the Chicken Tikka wrap is definitely the best Indian food to be found in Ottawa!
