Everyone seemed to have run out of my favourite mango pickle, so last Sunday we went to the wonderful Indian emporium in Drummond Street to get some. Didn’t have exactly the make I wanted but bought some Patak’s Hot Mango Pickle. I’ve tasted it and it seems fine, but I haven’t yet tried it with my own curry.
We don’t usually have a cooked lunch, preferring to have our main meal at night, but, since we would be in a street packed with Indian restaurants, we decided to have a curry lunch.
Unfortunately none of our favourite curry houses had any clients – always a bad sign – so we went for a buffet lunch instead.
The salads were good, the hot food so-so but the fresh fruit not only looked great but each variety was special.
Now that so many street markets which had stalls which sold only produce bought that day have gone, we’re reduced to buying fruit from supermarkets and it’s just not the same.
An enjoyable meal, and very reasonably priced, but I would have liked a hot curry! Time to make my own curry and try the Hot Mango Pickle with it!!
