Happened to be in the Irish Clock today (drinking coke still) and thought I would sample these Indian Curries I have heard about.
I ordered a 'Rogan Josh' and could hardly contain my anticipation
I have not had Indian curry since I arrived in Thailand - and I am sorry to say that I still have not had Indian curry
The meal arrived on a large plate, there was a bowl shaped portion of yellow rice on one side, and the 'curry' on the other side.
The meat was a suprise as I wasnt given a choice and came as chicken, in small bite sized pieces, there was some onion, the sauce itself and a whole tomato - fresh from the tin (and cold in the centre)
It was listed as being medium strength but I found it not even mild - there was little in the way of spiciness and to be honest I wondered whether I was eating a curry or a pasta sauce. It would have been great on a bed of spahgetti.
There were no accompaniments such a naan bread or popodums.
This curry was priced at 190 baht - which I have to say seems quite high, there were two other curries listed - one 'hot' (jalfrezi) - and the other 'mild' (korma ) priced at 160/190 baht.
I noticed that many of their menu items have had price increases (already) and off the top of my head - I remember pie and chips is now 200 baht - which makes it the most expensive western style restaurant in Udon. Steves Bar in comparrison does pie chips veg. gravy for 130 baht.
So, still searching for a good curry
