We in the venerable Curry Club make an annual Christmas pilgrimage to the Dil Chad near Liverpool St station for two reasons:
- The promise of somebody “accidentally” being on the receiving end of a stupidly hot curry. This is always very funny.
- A free stylish Desk Calendar
This year it was all different. Firstly, after over 40 years in the business, the place had decided to go upmarket. This was most obvious in the fact they had sophisticated and glossy menus, with sophisticated and glossy prices to match.
Disaster struck, however:
- Confused by the sophisticated and glossy menus, I was the one who ended up with a stupidly hot curry. This was not funny.
- They had spent so much time and money on the sophisticated and glossy menus that they hadn’t had any calendars printed!
So we’re never going back.
