London, United Kingdom

With so many amazing spots to choose from for stellar Indian cuisine in London, it’s hard to choose just one. From the Michelin-starred Chutney Mary’s to Amaya and Kahani there’s a plethora of high-end dining experiences. Or head to Drummond Street, considered “Little India” for your pick of authentic South Asian food choices. But Dishoom in either Kings Cross or Covent Garden never disappoints. It’s an amazing meal any traveler can count on.

Paris, France
New Jawad Longchamp

Like London, Paris is brimming with all sorts of Indian Cuisine and much of it is drool-worthy. But for Pakistani-inspired cuisine in a jewel box setting check out New Jawad Longchamp. Close to the Eiffel Tower, this makes for an easy spot to stop and indulge in more Paris culinary magic.

Irish cuisine has come a long way from meat and potatoes and highly esteemed Chef Sunhil Guy is proving it. He and his team are dazzling diners with a mash-up of local Irish produce and Northern India spices for a meal you won’t soon forget. Pickle is not far from St. Stephen’s Green in the Portobello neighborhood and lives up to, if not exceeds the hype.
