Perhaps one of the best parts of Little India is the rich and flavourful food found all over the district. The traditional flatbread chapatis as well as banana-leaf wrapped curries and chickens are extremely popular to try. If you have a sweet tooth, try masala milk, which is as enjoyable to watch being made as it is to taste.
