Fancy Curry At The Palace?

Apparently Prince Charles loves a good curry, can’t get enough of the stuff. So may we humbly suggest to the heir to the throne that he should toddle over the road from Buckingham Palace and check out The Rubens at The Palace’s new Indian restaurant, because it’s certainly fit for a king. The Rubens at The Palace hotel has been undergoing extensive renovations of late, and now the final piece of the puzzle falls into place as The Curry Room opens. Serving traditional Indian dishes the restaurant is yet another example of the Indian fine-dining trend sweeping the capital. And […]

Once upon a time Ottolenghi was a pastry chef, with no comprehension of the English’s traditional meals. What was the appeal?
