Dhanmondi - Tue 11th Feb

The table is booked!  We'll return to Dhanmondi in Whitehill for our next meeting,on Tuesday 11th.  It's often been our February choice since we first discovered it in 2006.   . 

Aperitifs will be at the Woodlark, the pub/restaurant just 150 yards away on the other side of the A325 from about 19:30.  I'm interested to see what beers are available.  It's a Marstons pub and I'm hoping they'll have a range of their excellent bottled beers available.

Dinner will be at 20:30.   There's a map below or you can follow this Google Maps link for map and directions.  Parking is at the back of the restaurant. 

Please let me know if you plan to be there, either using the feedback page on the web site or in reply to the MailChimp message which will be sent to members. Looking forward to a good evening on 11th!

December at Paradise Balti - Wednesday 11th

The table is booked for our December meeting!  Assuming that most of us won't be out canvassing for our favoured candidate in the General Election, we'll go to Paradise Balti for our last get-together of 2019, a fortnight before Christmas.  Please note -  Wednesday night instead of Tuesday!

We'll go to the Charles Street Tap for aperitifs, from about 19:30, and then dinner will be at 20:30.  Please let me know either by e-mail in response to this members' meeting notice or using the feedback page on our web site whether you expect to make it.    We need to know as early as possible as space and places are both limited.

By the way, the web site also has a link to our Amazon affiliate shop.  We receive small fees when people buy things using that link, and these can contribute to the beer kitty.  It's been ages since we had a payment but we enjoyed a £25 reduction on our bill in October.  Happy days!  Here's something to tempt for Christmas - a cookbook from the delightful Dishoom restaurants which was published in September and is on The Sunday Times bestseller lists - click here!

Hope to see you for the pre-Christmas meeting - should be a good one!

Spice Lounge in November!


Restaurant picture
We visited in January - not bad - but we hear it's improved since.  Early last year, the menu changed direction to something that looked expensive and very short of interesting dishes.  Now it's offering a full menu including some really hot dishes (phall, naga) as well as more sensible favourites.

I haven't ordered the kulchi lamb yet, but if at least eight people ask for it by 6 pm Saturday, I'll make a call.  The spiced up version was really quite good.

Aperitifs will be at the Old Drum from about 7.30 pm and then dinner will be at 8.30.  Please let me know either by e-mail in response to the members' meeting notice or using the feedback page on our web site whether you expect to make it.

Let's look forward to a great evening on Tuesday 12th November!
