If there's one thing I've fallen in love with while living in Dallas (besides, of course, my husband), it's learning about the cultures and foods of countries around the globe. Dallas is a quintessential melting pot for international cuisine, and especially so in the North Dallas suburbs where I spend most of my time dining.

Flavors Indian Restaurant is located along Belt Line Road in Addison, or restaurant row, as I've heard it referenced. Drive too quickly and you might miss Flavors, but be sure and slow down and stop by, as this is a place you're not going to want to pass up. The full name of the restaurant is "Flavors by Ganesha ek sanskriti". Ganesha ek sanskriti is owned by Mr. Shiv Dave and his wife, Mrs. Shilpa Dave, who describe their concept as an authentic Indian restaurant chain, began in 2003, with their first restaurant in Jakarta, Indonesia. The phrase "ek sanskriti" means, "a culture". The first restaurant in the United States for these restaurant owners, Flavors' sole aim is to bring authentic Indian cuisine to America, the way it's prepared traditionally in India. A marriage of Northern and Southern cuisine, the menu is vast and offers plenty for meat-eaters and vegetarians alike.

As I mentioned before, it's easy to eat meatless at Flavors. With a menu planned by a nutritionist, they take the utmost of care in including an equally exciting vegetarian menu. Paneer is a go-to choice of mine on Meatless Mondays (I'm sort of doing those). Paneer Vindaloo is a favorite of mine due to the heat in the sauce, but a super approachable and widely appealing "beginner" dish if your'e vegetarian and new to Indian cuisine would be the Paneer Tikka.
