here is the final meal report from my trip to london in late august: at the dishoom mothership in covent garden. some commentary on the kitschy aesthetic (and its influence) and more on the food (which was quite good but not the best south asian food i ate on the trip).

we just finalized our lodging for the spring, when we'll be in london for three months. looking forward to a lot more indian eating out, though i'm not sure i want to go back to dishoom.


my annoying opinions: whisky, food and occasional cultural commentary

 

current restaurant review: piccolo (minneapolis)

 

current whisky review: rampur select casks (indian single malt whisky)

 

current recipe: keema chops (indian-style croquettes)

 

 

facts are meaningless. you could use facts to prove anything that's even remotely true!

I only know her from The Wrath of Khan.  I've never seen her with hair.
