Following on from Part I of this two part special, it’s time to tackle the Indian meal I had last week. Indian restaurants are very difficult to track down in Santiago, but luckily there was one about a ten minute walk from my hotel, and so that seemed the easiest place to go.
It’s situated on Av. de 11 Septiembre, which is the same road as my hotel, but it’s much further down. I’m by Pedro de Valdivia metro station, whereas this one is nearer Tobalaba (two stops on line one to the East).
I opted for the set menu, for about £6.00 or so. With that you got a starter of cheese balls, with a main course of “Chicken Curry”, rice, and naan bread. Quite what type of curry “chicken curry” was, I wasn’t certain, and I ended up having a bi lingual chat with the waiter (with me resolutely sticking to Spanish, while he opted for English). Unfortunately I also got a menu primarily in English, but fortunately it wasn’t a shambolic Google Translate job (unlike one incident I recall in a hotel in Bayeux, where the English menu offered “roofing tile” for pudding. I still don’t know what that could have been – if you’re ever in the Bayeux area, definitely check out the tapestry)!
Anyway, I enjoyed my chicken curry very much, although again, it’s not as good as curry in the UK!
