Once in a while I like to pop into The Kashmir. It's like my home away from home, and the place I have eaten most Bradford Curry in over the years. Although in my youth I never ever really went anywhere else, now, with my new found Bradford Curry knowledge, I no longer consider it the best, except for the bhaji's and naan that is! Recently too, curry has improved a great deal.
However, the Kashmir soft spot remains to this day, and still remains the place I would take a newbie to experience hardcore Bradford Curry.
|Old Kashmir sign overlooking the car park to the rear. If I told you they |
were bullet holes* would you be surprised?
|'WELCOME TO THE KASHMIR'. Down these stairs, into the bowels of |
t'Kash, where perpetual night reigns, is one of THE all time
Bradford Curry eating experiences.
|No windows! It's forever any time of the day you like in the Kashmir.|
|The Kashmir's Onion Bhaji - My favourite. Crispy onion shards give way to |
softer doughy insides. Not overly powerful on the onion flavour front, I
like to much them with the raw onion salad and dipped in the mint sauce.
|The Meat Karahi excellent too. Rich but not overly oily. The dry(ish) texture |
of the dish is also and meat rich, and gives you something good to gnaw at,
and very garlicky.
