“Baltimore” – Extra curry.

    Good one. I had to look it up, but now I’ve learned something and had a chuckle. I think I can be done for the day.

    Nice! This one was easy for me to grasp as an Indian but I was surprised that you would know it! 😀

      Oh yes, curry is a staple here. Balti restaurants are very common.

      I’m guessing you wouldn’t recognise many of the anglicized versions of your dishes, but Indian cooking is hugely popular here.

    I was stuck in Hong Kong on father’s day and went to a curry brunch at the Jocky Club. Balti and I became good friends.
