It's pretty hilarious how extremely similar the dishes are, just different spices (but also some of the same ones as well).

(Shrimp and grits from Surrey's -- coming October 2012...)
Though similar, Indian food is still my second favorite food to creole/cajun food. Really suck that there's no sausage here by the way.
