I hear the Rupali has had a makeover - the late lamented Latif's sons have taken over and tried to move it a bit more upmarket

I had some 'Chicken Nuggets' in there the other day, I enjoyed them!

The mate I was with said "Chicken Nuggets . . they're for kids you know". So I said . . 'I guess MY secret is out then!'

(I don't agree with him, by the way!)

Anyway, I will probably add a more serious 'restaurants' comment later . .

You're a STAR hollow! I've often wanted to do that! I find them so 'more-ish' like crisps or (in my case) Maltesers!

Boy, am I feeling HUNGRY now!!!!

I have never understood peoples love of chinese food. It repulses me. Egg fried rice chips and curry sauce is as far as ill venture into It!! Indian food on the other hand is the food of kings. It wipes the floor with Chinese food any day of the week imo.

Is it going to be an expensive place do you think?

I can honestly say that I have never had a bad curry in a Tyneside restaurant. They are spot on all the time.

Also what is the best Italian in Newcastle? I tend not to eat out in them but spag bol is one of the staples of my diet. Would love to sample the best spag bol in Newcastle.

My father was in India for about ten years (in the army) before the war, and two 'curry related' things came out that, for me.

1 - He told me in no uncertain terms WHY these curry flavours were added to meat in the first place (I'll not go on!)

2 - He used to make strong curries (based on his Indian experiences) when I was a small child, which I hated. I hate the smell and taste of any and all curry-type dishes now! (I don't miss them!)

Still, there-ya-go!

Oh Historian!! You dissapoint me. I thought that such a cultured fellow like yourself would love an Indians. Tender chicken breast smothered in a nice Madras sauce is the very taste of heaven.
