Gallus Glasgow C: Curry

Some years ago, my husband visited Delhi on business. He was invited to his host’s home for dinner, and when the forthcoming dessert was described John said “That sounds like gulab jamun.” Astonishment! How could he possibly know that? Well, he had eaten it in restaurants at home – again, this caused surprise. We had Indian restaurants in Glasgow? How many – maybe three? “Sometimes three per street” came the reply. And here is the proof – I give you C for Curry, but also C for Candleriggs* with its three Indian restaurants, Dahkin, Dhabba and KoolBa. (Some of the delicious food from Koolba is illustrated above.) And if you turn the corner onto Trongate, there’s another C right there: Charcoals.

You can’t beat a Glasgow curry – don’t visit without trying one! That wouldn’t be gallus.

*Candleriggs was historically the area of the old city of Glasgow where candle-makers plied their trade.

Tomorrow we have a double D. I’m not talking lingerie or Donald Duck, but one of those is half way there….

    I have never had curry, although I have heard of it. I don’t know if I’d try it as the name doesn’t scream “yummy” to me…lol

      Curry’s a very generic name and covers many dishes – I’m sure you’d find one to suit you!
