    Default Gurkha Takeout

    I just had Gurkha takeout from a new place in town. It was delicious.

    They had some Chinese and Tibetan looking stuff on the menu (sweet and sour dishes for the chinese, MoMo dumplings for the 'pan-Himalayan'), but I went with a curry and rice.

    It was called Gaunle Kukhura. Chicken on the bone with garlic, ginger, thick tomato-based sauce. 'Popular nepalese village dish' according to the menu. Saffron Pilau with it.

    Oh man.

    Let's just say it was like the best North Indian curry I've ever had with a touch of some extra spice in the background I can't quite identify, a certain sourness that just fitted. No hint of any lack of freshness in the meat or vegetables or rancidness in the cooking butter. It was a huge portion of chicken for the price too.

    The guy who delivered it was a middle-aged Gurkha wearing a neat shirt and tie, who introduced himself by name and shook my hand before handing the curry over. He also looked a little bit confused when I gave him a Christmas tip, which is a nice change from the normal routine with delivered takeout.

    I'm very satisfied now. Warm from the belly out. They'll have my business again.

    Bastard, just Bastard best curry ever eaten by me was Goat cooked like you described there in the kitchen of the middle block at 8 sigs Catterick - The Guys from the Queens Gurkha signals used to get to take over that kitchen at weekends - regulars ate at the top block kitchen , a couple of us got an invite because we used to play volleyball against them in the gym and because I was a Partick Thistle supporter (Gurkha soldiers based in Glasgow used to get free admission to games so they have a huge fan club in Nepal).

    Anyway I am jealous as fuck.

    Don’t say, “It’s a good sword” till you’ve tested it.
    Don’t say, “She’s a good girl” till she’s married off.
    Don’t say, “The ice is safe” till you’ve crossed it.
    Don’t say, “The beer is good” till you’ve drunk the last of it.

    Gurkha restaurants are opening up around the country now. I've seen them in London, the west country and the midlands. None north of the border yet ?

    Google mentions a couple in Edinburgh but none in Glasgow.

    Go through to Edinburgh quite often so will pay a visit. Will make a change from the Mosque kitchen (excellent curry but you eat outdoors from paper plates at benches under a giant pergola) Really cheap though 50p for a nan and £3.50 for a curry with rice.
