With 15 successful years under its belt, modern Indian restaurant Indika shows no signs of slowing down. Chef-owner Anita Jaisinghani's creative take on the cuisine is perfectly suited for the Houston palette, where spice is welcomed, if not required. Adventurous diners will get a delicious kick out of dishes like goat brains masala, while upscale takes on everyday favorites range from a fiery lamb chops vindaloo to a roasted duck and noodles dish that comes swimming in an incredible Burmese-inspired curry. Meat isn’t even needed for the warm spices and expertly-balanced flavors to sing, as the vegetable offerings, including a bright red beet soup and savory chickpea crepe, are just as satisfying.
