For the first time, a Fraser Street dosa restaurant takes the gold.
Dosa Corner takes home gold for the first time for both its namesake dosas—the onion rava masala dosa is particularly lacy and crisp, the rice-and-lentil crepe offering a perfectly fermented chew—and its gorgeous biryanis, rich with whole pieces of tender meat (go for the bone-in goat biryani with aromatic basmati).
8248 Fraser St., Vancouver
Silver winner Sachdeva Sweets’ superb Indian street food “feels and tastes homestyle, which is a real treat,” noted one judge. Cozy channa bhatura and terrific tandoori kulcha—naan stuffed with chopped red onions and mashed potatoes—are go-tos, along with made-in-house addictive snack mixes.
7500 120th St., Surrey
West Vancouver stalwart Swad serves “deeply resonant Indian flavours with local, delicate ingredients,” said one judge, earning the room the bronze this year. The goat curry manages to be both richly flavoured and light on the palate, a perfect pairing to warmly toasted tandoori roti.
1734 Marine Dr., West Vancouver
Sula’s fresh, bright menu showcases many regions of India and earns an honourable mention; the classics at fellow HM Vij’s
remain outstanding: the jackfruit and kale coconut curry and the portobello red pepper curry with paneer are as spectacular as ever.
3106 Cambie St., Vancouver
