While in New Orleans I found an excellent Indian spot. Yes it's true, there is some good a** Indian fare in the French Quarter. I know, I know, Louisiana is not known for Indian but luckily I found this great spot.
Salt & Pepper at 400 Iberville in the French Quarter has some of the most authentic Indian I have eaten. And I eat on Devon in Chicago regularly. I am well versed in the American versions of Indian food, and this place does it right.
I had the Chicken Masala and it was Monte-riffic! The chicken was juicy, well spiced, and bursting with flavor. The masala sauce and chick peas where perfect. The sauce had the right amount of spice, and a smooth consistency, while the chick peas tasted fresh and had a little bite to em still. This is a must try if yer in the area and lookin for something truly different in the area.
Before I forget, the decor is nothing special, it's just a bunch of uncomfortable benches. But yer not there for the decor, yer there for the food!

Mr. Beef and Pizza at 3917 N. Harlem Ave. is easily one of the best places in the city of Chicago to get an Italian Beef. This is in my professional, totally valid, and valued opinion. This place serves em huge, and a bit spicy, and greasy! Very Monte-riffic! I do not recommend getting a combo here, which is an Italian Beef with Italian Sausage. Not that they are terrible, but there is a different spot to get those where they are the best. Here, you get the beef. Dipped. Fries are good even though they're frozen, and you get a lot.
They also have a char grill and pizza slices, what more can you ask for besides a stripper poll?

Bananas Foster Cafe in Chicago at 1147 West Granville Avenue has some of the best pancakes I have ever eatin in my life. They almost taste like funnel cake, but they're pancakes. So Freakin Monte-licious!
This is truly the spot to bring someone for breakfast if yer trying to make love to em and tryin to impress em. This place is also perfect the next morning, if you still like the person you woke up next to. It's also great to take ma & pa for a special treat.
You just need to go here and have the pancakes!
Also get Bubble & Squeak, mashed potatoes with peas and brussel sprouts in em and fried up like a burger. So good! Also try the in house made hollandaise sauce, again, Monte-licious! Omg!! I almost forgot, get the Bananas foster for christ sake!!!

Steve's Steaks at 650 South St. in Philly has a Monte-licious Cheesesteak sandwich. One of my new faves in Philly for a cheesesteak. They make a chopped steak sandwich, which is what I prefer. The sandwich spots where they do not chop the steak do not know me and may never.
