March meeting - Paradise Balti

The table is booked!  The March meeting of Petersfield Curry Club will be at Paradise Balti on Wednesday 13th.  Dinner will be at 20:30. The thirsty amongst us will gather at the (Old) Square Brewery from about 19:30. 

Did you know they'd changed the name of the pub?  I didn't until recently, but maybe the Old was putting off younger potential customers.  Still, they haven't banned over-18s and I'm sure all members of the Curry Club will be welcome there as usual. 

Please use the feedback page of the web site to let us know if you'll be there.  I'll also send out an e-mail to the membership in the next day or so.  Looking forward to a great evening!

Web site changes

The main Petersfield Curry Club web site has just had its spring update.  Here are the main changes:

Amazon Shop: there's now a selection of food and drink guides in the category Eating out 2013.  Sorry but at present the Good Curry Guide 2013 is not available. 

Directory: updated to give better details for restaurants and pubs.  All of restaurants that we currently use should have a link from the directory to the latest reviews in the blog. 

One other change - see if you can spot it and let me know if you approve!

Dhanmondi - meeting report - 13th Feb

Our visit to Whitehill took place on a coolish February evening, but the welcome was warm and the food was hot.  Once again we had a great turnout, with at least one very interesting dish to excite the palate. 

The main dishes included a house special murgh massala, podina gusht (lamb), and a chicken tikka massala to the chef's own recipe; maybe we'd had too many papadums, but the feedback from members on these was neutral rather than brilliant.   For me the highlight of the evening was the 'authentic naga chicken', a chilli dish which had a tremendous kick but no burning mouth after-effect. Quite remarkable, and for the chilli-mad amongst us, there were a couple of takeaway containers at the end of the evening.  It tasted very good for lunch the next day, with a little plain rice.  

We enjoyed a very convivial evening, and decided that in March we'll go to Petersfield.  On 13th March, dinner will be at Paradise Balti and aperitifs will be at the Old Square Brewery.  A notice will be posted when the booking is made.
