Comedian Glen Foster and I go way back…waaaaaay back to when Yuk Yuk’s ruled the Toronto entertainment scene and Canada was enjoying it’s “golden era” of stand-up comedy in the 1980’s. Over the years, Glen (pictured below) has performed at comedy festivals, had his own TV specials, headlined shows in the biggest clubs around the country and has made thousands of people laugh, especially as “That Canadian Guy”, a personae perfected and showcased on stage and on the air.Now co-host of the hilarious “Hump Dump Live” radio show on Funny820-AM (Wednesdays noon to 1pm) along with fellow comedian and writer Lawrence Morgenstern, Glen recently joined me for lunch at Leela Indian Food Bar in Toronto’s Junction neighbourhood – Leela is one of the radio show’s advertisers so why not see/taste what everyone has been talking about: deelish authentic Indian cuisine served in a modest yet hipster-friendly environment located at 3108 Dundas St West.
Providing the perfect balance of quality, taste and presentation of dhaba-style Indian food, Leela’s takes you on a journey through the old streets of India’s big cities and small villages where the aroma of spices welcomes you and the mouthwatering flavors keep you engaged with the authentic Indian preparations as well as innovative Indo-Canadian cuisine. A bit of a mouthful description but Glen easily polished off kale & spinach pakoras, vegetarian samosas, butter chicken and lamb biryani….
…but did leave enough to take home to share with his family for dinner!Leela has comfortable seating (pictured below) and an extensive menu offering vegetarian and Gluten-free choices, with prompt home delivery service, too. Easy access for those with strollers or wheelchairs (washrooms, too)You can learn more about Glen and Lawrence via their show website http://www.humpdumplive.com/ and watch for Glen performing live at Toronto’s leading comedy clubs.And if you’d like to taste the scrumptious dishes that Leela serves (and customizes for your preferred level of “heat” and spice) check out their online menu at www.leelaindianfoodbar.ca or just drop in to the restaurant at 3108 Dundas St West (just W of Quebec Ave) 7 days a week.
