Setting the benchmark

April 1, 2010

Tonight the quest begins with my first Balti of this 4 month challenge, but where to start? Well for me, it’s got to be the Ladypool Road for several reasons. Number one my Mum is visiting and has never been there. Number two, we recently bought a print called ‘Ladypool Road’ by local artist Jan Bowman and it’s fresh in our minds. Number three, that’s where they went on that video below. I also want it to be on Andy Munro’s list of authentic Balti’s, and probably one of the 5 star rated one’s here. That narrows it down to four, and I’ve been to Al Frash before. So here’s my choices, where should I go? vote below!

    I love The Cottage, that’s where we normally go. Although sadly they don’t do the Bengali fish dishes that they used to. However The Cottage isn’t in the Balti triangle, I’d have to bend the rules to find the perfect Balti there, perhaps it’s worth it…?
