The Village is a hamlet no more…


Open for business as usual, so I’ll have ‘The Usual’…

Two weeks since the last Village (Nelson St, Glasgow) experience, far too long. What is happening? Posters on the window…ah the planned renovations are under way. The downstairs is being expanded into the industrial unit across the small lane, strange, but we will find out when all is complete in two months.

And so now the ‘Villagio’, the Halal Italian (?) restaurant of old, located directly across the street has been brought back to life. This is a very pleasant room and a lot more spacious than our old faithful. The toilets here at least usable.


Jonathan was delayed so this gave Hector the opportunity to take multiple photos of our new temporary ‘home’. The board only had lamb chops on offer, ok I admit I have not been tempted yet to try what I know others are raving about, but it is a long, long time since the Lamb Desi Korma has been ordered. Plus, as it changes every time we have it, it must be different in its new location. Jonathan ordered the Chicken Tawa. Happiness is…

The Village Lamb Desi Korma is a dish I cannot complement too highly. The subtle Yogurt sauce blended with Citrus leaves an after taste may not be to everyone’s liking, however when you get a good one, and today’s certainly was, I doubt if there is better Curry served anywhere in Glasgow. But Hector will keep looking.

At the end of the meal Hector was escorted back across the street to the old haunt as the credit card facility was not set up yet in the new premises. The place was stripped down to sandstone walls. ‘This will be the kitchen area and through the wall will be the new place…and why are you taking all of these photographs?’
