Ian has been back from Malta for some time now, but Hector has been out of the country recently. It was Ian who suggested a lunchtime Curry Heute, and he let Hector choose the venue.
As Ian had never been to The Village (129 Nelson St, Glasgow, G5 8DX) this was the obvious place to go for the finest Curry in Glasgow. It also means we can continue with the game of spotting the Curry variants served up in this establishment.
Once again there were no Specials on The Board. The main menu was the glanced at: Ian took the advice and had The Village Lamb Desi Korma, Hector opted for the Lamb Laal Lahori. Hassan and Maggie were on duty to serve us. Maggie confirmed that you do get more Lamb if you order it off-the-bone. However, the Aloo Gosht on-the-bone, when available must be ordered.
The Laal Lahori
This superb dish is tomato based with garlic, ginger and chillies. The tomato was certainly to the fore. The meat as ever was cut with a fork quality and melt in the mouth.
Today the Chef is Thomas : The Village Lamb Desi Korma is Yellow
The summer vacation is nearly over. Back to the grind and fewer mid-week Curries.
