I know our American readers miss our trad pubs a lot, but they’re also missing our authentic (?) northern curry houses, which Bradford still does the best.
Curryheute, who is to curry what Roger Protz is to pubs, has a list of recommended houses.
No, I haven’t been to Carthage yet.
But I’ve been to the International, it was the scene of the famous “beer after mango lassi” incident in 2014.
The walk through town, via Sunbridge Wells, is half the fun.
The Shalimar is over the road, but I know the International has toilets that may be more acceptable to one half of our party.
This is a classy place, and by early evening it’s full of locals in groups.
Our choices are not exciting,
but Lamb Karahai and Chicken Dhansak have JUST the right constituency, and I doubt you’ll eat better for under £40 anywhere in West Yorkshire.
I have NO idea how Mrs RM managed to get the drinks bill above £8.
NB If you don’t drink mango lassi, the Fighting Cocks is only 5 minutes away.
