Friday night curry

Are you so over turkey right now? Here's one from Expat: Where I come from (London), the Friday night curry is quite a long tradition (also on Thursday night, and Wednesday night, and....). I'm sorry to say that waiters in curry restaurants often see a deplorable side of the British character after the pubs close and their establishments are the only source of beer.
I've been here in San Diego long enough to remember when the only public source of curry involved an expedition to National City, to the hard-to-find "Curry Pot" restaurant. Nowadays, of course, curry is all over the place and misbehavior is not well tolerated. Our usual Friday night trio recently went for lamb sagwalla (with spinach), lamb korma (mild with yoghourt), and fish tikka masala, at the India Palace in Hillcrest.

Although I'm fond of claiming that the best curry comes from my own kitchen, this feast was very, very good, with excellent basmati rice and naan flatbread. We didn't misbehave (other than the flash photography) but did we indulge in Indian beer? Of course we did.

This looks absolutely good enough to eat! Yes please. I'd forgotten the Brits love their curries.
