yeah im not sure what the crack is with that, but often now if i order a tikka from the indian take away, it comes an almost florescent red colour and is overly sweet, instead of the more traditional tangy tikka, it appears a british pub now does a better curry than an indian curry house, i usually go for a Jalfrazi when ordering take awayYaTingPom wrote:
Yeah, I was playing devils advocate just to get someone (you!) defending our grub.
Incidentally, curry houses in the UK were (and still are) mainly owned by Bangladeshi and Bengali (started originally mainly in the East End by the docks, to cater for Bengalese seaman and dock workers) as I am guessing any Indians coming over were well educated and had proper jobs, doctors, vets etc.
Not a fan of curries myself. All brightly coloured crap with low grade meat, with questionable history. I am sure there are top notch curry places throughout the UK but I reckon the majority appeal to the majority of eaters (as in drunk).
Always get a dickie tummy after curry, not sure why, but I can eat all sorts of street food here, crickets, chicken blood, intestines, small birds, chicken feet and not get sick.
Love full English mind.
a good full english is quite possibly my favourite meal, its just a shame its hard to replicate out here, i had a couple of good fry ups in thailand in january though, took me by surprise, Retox in Pattaya on Soi Lengkee did a great belly buster with all the trimmings :twothumbsup:
