Best Other Asian Restaurants 2011

May 1, 2011

Spice Islands Indonesian Restaurant

3592 W. 41st Ave.

The spicy sambal babi, rich lamb curry, and beef rendang all hum with deep complexity at Spice Island (Gold). “The unmistakable brightness of freshly toasted and ground spices tip off the care behind chef Joseph Boon’s cooking.” Café Kathmandu (Silver) presents soothing Himalayan fare, the flavours from across the subcontinent clean and fresh. Sample delectable bite-sized steamed momo filled with vegetables or pork. Tiny, smoky Flying Tiger (Bronze) still captivates with Far East street sharables. Alongside the steadfast Banana Leaf chain, Bo Laksa King takes an Honourable Mention for its standout Burmese fare.
