Bradford – Breakfast at Kashmir

Jonathan and Dr Stan took advantage of our Hilton Hotel deal, again it was Ricky who found this, and went down for breakfast. Hector had other things on his mind. A noon Curry-Heute at Kashmir (27 Morley St, Bradford BD7 1AG ) was what his plan was to start the day running.

I did check the other premises around Great Horton Rd and Morley St to see where else was open, just in case a Sunday ‘breakfast’ was required. The Lahore (52 Great Horton Rd, Bradford, BD7 1AL) was open but told me that normally they would be open early on a Sunday but they had a wedding party booked. It was a bit posh looking for Bradford.

The Kashmir is always open, I have eaten more Bradford Curry here than anywhere else in this city. That they are one of the oldest Curry Houses in Bradford may have something to do with this. I realise that I have been eating here now for fifteen years.

The downstairs room is is the day room, there are about half a dozen others already in place. I am not alone. The waiter comes and asks if I want a menu. I took it and decided to select from the right side of the page for a change: Meat Karahi. Now there is a surprise, but my normal selection is a Dry Curry from the other side.

Rice or Chapattis come inclusive.  I decided on Rice, I was – Chapattied – out This turned out not to be a wise decision. It was plain Basmati Rice, I prefer more interesting Vegetables in my Rice. The lack of Masala makes Rice a strange choice. Had I made a serious mistake?

The meal came in minutes, with the volume they sell this must make the job simple. The Curry was fine. Sadly that is all I can say about it on this visit. The Curry from the night before was still in the forefront of my mind. I was not doing the meal justice and the Rice was killing it. I should have known better.

I shall be back and I know I will enjoy another superb lunch at Kashmir, however, evenings will be spent at….

The staff were interested in my calling card..I explained that I am from Glasgow and that I was making a Curry sojourn in Bradford. One chap mentioned Pollokshields, I mentioned Yadgar, he claimed to know it. They asked if I worked there, this is a challenge I have yet to meet.
