Naan but the Best!

Top foodie writer, Tom Parker-Bowles wrote about his recent visit to Brum to sample some of its finest, in this Sunday’s Daily Mail. It was heartening to see that  a man of his many tastes could equally enjoy both the ‘humble’ Balti and also top notch dining at the Michelin acclaimed Opheems in the City’s Jewellery Quarter. 

Phrases such as ‘blistered and buttery naans … a brace of sweetly succulent sheekh kebabs … a magnificent lamb and spinach balti’ sit comfortably alongside ‘spices that flatter and cosset the crustacean (soft shell crab) coaxing out its innate sweetness … a lusciously lavish rich sauce … succulent chicken beneath a charred crust … depth and balance with a slow languorous chilli burn’. 

He finishes with the conclusion  ‘two modern bites of the sub-continent, miles apart in price and presentation but both united in their power to deliver!’ Amen to Birmingham’s excellent ‘curry’ scene!’
