Sag paneer

Every time I go to an Indian restaurant, I order this dish as I enjoy it.  The best version in London that I have had is the one from the Punjab in Neal Street.  The vagar (sauce it is cooked in) is similar to many of my shaks but...

We love curry

Poor old Dave. Not only does he have to wait a year for a curry, now every blog fan in Greenwich knows he wears a checked shirt (see Classic Photo No 2). This is thanks to mentions and links from the iconic blogger, the Greenwich Phantom (thegreenwichphantom.co.uk), the Cobra...

Classic photo (No 2)

This is the face of a man who has been waiting for a curry for 12 months. Chinese, Italian, Turkish, Swiss (roll), he’s had the lot in the last year, but this is the first proper meal this man has had in a year. What did he have? Biryani....

Blondes have more pizza

February 2010 The Mogul, Greenwich Well, rock my soul. Drum roll please… Is this girls I see at the GCC monthly meeting? Does it mean a table full of butter chicken? Then I shall hit back with an equally male curry cliche and order a vindaloo. But hang on,...

Classic photo (No 1)

Dear oh dear. Now the GCC eaters have taken to posing with the staff (here at the Gurkha Inn). The GCC are the two with big grins on their faces. But what, we must ask have they done to upset the staff at this lovely restaurant? And why has...

Extraordinary meeting (February 2010)

A special meeting of the wandering members of the GCC has been called for early February in sunny Benidorm. A nice curry is a well-known traditional Spanish dish and has been every since the British invaded the country in the 1960s. India Gate, near the Old Town and Nawaab...

A rather civilised affair

January 2010 Gurkha’s Inn, Greenwich The best thing about having a decent number around the table for an Indian (well done Ian for rustling up five this month, and even an apology for absence from Tina) is that you can order what you fancy and then when you get...

Meeting (January 2010)

The first meeting of the New Year is on 18 January at the Kerala Zone (119 Trafalgar Road, Greenwich). Meet for beers in Hardy’s pub at 7.30pm to clean the palate....

Tandoori overload and the sniffles

December 2009 The Mogul, Greenwich Dave’s go the sniffles. He looks like he’d rather be tucked up in bed with a good woman. But, he’s a loyal determined member of the Greenwich Curry Club and he’s battled through the snow and the cold to be here tonight. He missed...
