2nd night in London and D joined me. We met at Galvins which is on the 28th floor of the Park Lane Hilton. I would say there are 3 places on a par to view London, Vertigo(Tower 42 in The City), The London Eye and Galvins. The most stylish and sumptuous is Galvins.
The Galvin’s bloody Mary is the best I’ve ever had anywhere(truffle oil…..)! Not cheap though.
We were lazy so we caught a taxi to Tamarind which is just off Curzon Street and only 5 mins walk off Park Lane. Copper is the interior design theme. There are curry houses and then there is Tamarind. Chef Alfred Prasad is the youngest ever Indian chef to be awarded a Michelin Star. The dishes below will be known to all but with respect to all the good curry’s we have eaten the taste and ability to discern individual flavours was a fantastic first;
Aloo Tikka, Seekh Kebab, Shami Kebab, Kadhai Jingha, Murgh Makni, Bhuna Murgh, Saag Aloo, Bhindi, Bread basket and Basmati rice. To drink well, Cobra’s and Lassi of course!
