We made a trip out to Flushing for some authentic southern Indian cuisine at Southern Spice.  An explosion of spices and flavors ensued.  It was Indian food you can only get in Queens or India.

Here is the Hyderbadi Mutton Dum Biriyani.  Mutton is not my favorite, but with the rice and yogurt sauce, that dish was tasty.

The lamb vindaloo was tasty too.

One of the highlights for me was the pepper crusted tandoori duck breast.  It was like nothing I have ever had.

The masterpiece at Southern Spice, however, is the Chicken 65, which purportedly uses 65 spices to achieve its flavor profile.  This is the dish that will keep me going out to Queens for Indian food.  Totally out of this world.
