Respond to Review of Pushap - Namur
Review: There are very few authentic Indian restaurants in Montreal and that too vegetarian. Pushap is one of them. It is a no frills, simple, inexpensive place that serves traditional, authentic home stule food at down to earth prices. The only down side is that the spicing tends to be on the mild side, but if you ask, they will spice it up. But Indian food cannot be spiced properly by just adding spices to cooked food. It has to be part of the cooking. I have rarely come across such succulent paneer (melt in the mouth) and such thick, soft and fluffy bhatura (the way it is meant to be). Unfortunately the chana to go with the bhatura was very tame. Pushap is more famous for its samosas, and rightly so. Up and down the East Coast of North America, it is now impossible to find real samosas made with cut potatoes and peas instead of mashed potatoes. Well, at Pushap you will find it. I took a few home to NY with me!
