Multicultural food?

Wednesday, May 6th, 2009

I used to have a small chuckle passing a place in Glasgow called “Murphy’s Pakora Bar”. Wonderful. Food has always been at the forefront of multiculturalism: people like trying different foods, in new contexts.

Curries were accepted into British society far more quickly and readily than brown skinned bus drivers or doctors.

And we’ve always been happy to experiment with pizzas for example… Hawaiian Pizza?

So, now I’ve spotted there’s an “Indian Tapas” restaurant.

And it doesn’t even sound wrong any more, does it? In fact it’s quite appealling I think. Reminds me of… now, was it George’s father in “Seinfeld” who wished he could have a meal made just of starters [and reprised in "Curb Your Enthusiasm" perhaps?]
