Birthday Lunch with Chie
Friday 2nd May 2014
Took the afternoon off work, and went for a long luxurious lunch with Chie at Trishna in Marleybone, as a birthday treat (a couple of days ahead of th actual day).
London May 2014
My first course: vada and rasam. The rasam was this spicy tomato soup.
Second course - aloo chat.
Third course - cauliflower samosa.
This is actually Chie's fourth course, they got these the wrong way round (and I didn't get a picture of mine after we swapped).
Fifth course - paneer tikka.
The two of us at our table as the sixth course arrived.
Sixth course - bharli vangi (an aubergine dish) with various accompaniments.
The Hyderabadi daal was good - that's a Scotch bonnet on top, which we chose not to eat.
Seventh course - rose bappa doi.
Rather unglamorously on the number 2 bus on the way back.
We picked up Erika from nursery together today, which was nice for a change.
