Season's eatings! October may be over, but Dining Month on OnMilwaukee, presented by the restaurants of Potawatomi Hotel & Casino, is still cooking, dishing out your winning picks in this year's Best of Dining poll. Congratulations to all of the winners, and happy eating for all those who voted!
It's coming up on a decade of domination for longtime Milwaukee restaurant staple Maharaja, which won its ninth straight best Indian/Pakistani food title in our Best of Dining poll.
The category was filled with flavorful options – including Cafe India, Shah Jee's, Bollywood Grill and Anmol, which, unlike Maharaja, appeared on both the voters picks and the foodie picks – but Maharaja triumphed yet again thanks to its delicious menu inspired by northern and southern Indian cuisine. Whether going for one of the restaurant's popular lunchtime buffets or for one of its signature dishes – including the Seekh Kabab (minced lamb with onions and spices) and Reshmi Kabab Lahsooni (chicken breast with cream, yogurt and spices), both cooked in the clay tandoor oven – it's clear Maharaja is one of Milwaukee's favorites.
We'll have to wait until next year to see if the Indian staple can literally make it a decade of domination over its fellow Indian/Pakistani competition. In the meantime, we'll just keep eating the food.
