I am struggling tomight. I want something DIFFERENT, tasty and healthy. Been through all the local places in my head, blank! None of the local places fit any of the above. If I was back home, easy, 3 pints and a curry!

One cuisine I'm interested in is the Indian Curry.  I've read plenty where Finn & FatFred RAVE about a good Curry but I've come to understand that I can't get a proper one here in the States...

Another cuisine I have yet to try is Thai.  A lot of close family & friends seem to have had it and like it but I haven't tried it. 

Any suggestions or thoughts on Thai?
What you've never had a Ruby? Jesus Christ man you could get knocked over tomorrow. Get some money together get a flight over here, take in a Fulham game and try the best food that England has to offer. Thai food is ok , but i wouldn't rave about it, usually very coconuty,and i'm not mad on coconut. And Chinese food over here has gone down the pan, i used to love a good chinky, but they all seem to use that rubbery reprocessed chicken nowadays and it's sh1t. I think the Triads may make them buy it, but i know loads of people that wont eat it anymore for that reason.

On the Chinese front, Freddy, I can't seem to get a really good crispy duck here with the proper pancakes for some reason. It just isn't crispy enough over here in the US.

Freddy, There's an Indian place on the Uxbridge Road at Hillingdon, about 1/4 before you get to Long Lane, we went there last visit, and that weren't half bad neither. :013:

Steve, after 10 years of trying to find a decent ruby this side of the Atlantic, I've taken to brewing up my own.

So, if you know your way around the kitchen, I'll send you/post the recipe if you, or anyone else, wants. Be warned, it's a little hot for the average American taste, but you can change that by altering the ingredient amount. The good thing is it doesn't use any processed foods except the tomato paste.

I dont usually get out to Hillingdon(although it's only a couple of mile down the rd) but strangley enough i was on long lane right by the uxbridge rd today. If you come onto long lane from the A40 there's Bill the Bakers and i had a hot pork bap for £2.60 today, and the amount of meat in it was unbelievable. And theres anouther Pangs there as well.

Freddy, No mate, I use the same monika on all the MBs, just to avoid confusion (for me  :011:)  I grew up at Lillie Road and Hammersmiths Peabody's before moving out to Hanwell and then further afield.

I did live In Southall for a while and used to go to the target pub on Thursday lunchtimes for the topless lasses dancing there. :004:
