The Pig and Whistle re-born

I will try the Big & Whistle fare but not the Indian place since I can't eat spicy food, including Thai. I care not one jot what the nationality of the owner or chef is.

When I spoke to them earlier in the year when they were working on the place, I was under the impression that it was to be just an Indian Restaurant.

So why have 2 names?

After doing the sign at the back, they didn't have enough paint left to redo the sign at the front. Just had enough left to change the "P" to a "B"

 

I've seen similar done in Indian restaurants in Pattaya. They have one big pot of curry sauce and just add varying amounts of chilli powder depending on which curry you order, Then throw a few bits of random meat in. Its all about cheap and easy, you must remember they are fronts for money launderers, they don't expect people to actually eat in them.

My favourite breakfast resto has a Thai lady as a chef. I wish my other half could cook like her.

I will be making myself a spaghetti carbonara later  ...  for my tea.

OK. Whew. Turns out you do follow the TVF Authorized Proper Gourmet Diet after all.

 

Now The Diet does permit you to dinn on curry sometimes, but not dinn on none o’ that injun stuff. Has to be proper pabulum served in pubs frequented by the members of Her Majesty’s Royal Imperial Expeditionary Force In Thailand. It may be, however, that such will be served in the Big and Whistle if no injuns are in there, so's you don’t look like no injun yourself.

 

So that ends the threat to the Rule that the new Punjabi Junction will have not one customer ever. It's fated to sit there empty like Alibaba has been sitting empty on Central Road since 1984. Not that we've ever given the Alibaba seating area the definitive Eyeballs Verification, mind you, as we have the other injuns when passing by once or twice. But we know anyway. 🙂
