Goodness Gracious Me - Going out for an English

I am going to be very self-conscious the next time I go out for Indian food.


  1. Hilarious--thanks I needed a laugh this morning.

    And yeah I too will feel a bit self-conscious: the colonization of exotic foods.

  2. I love that in England they say "go for a curry." But I wanted to have Thai food tonight. Is that still okay? I promise not to order too much food nor to mispronounce the names of the dishes.

  3. I think my favorite line is "Oh get something a little bland!"

    Anyway, Dr. Write, when I go for Thai, Chinese, Korean, Vietnamese or, sometimes, Japanese, I tend to point at the menu rather than slaughtering the actual name of the dish. Thank God for numbers next to dishes.

  4. Finally, I see it and it makes me laugh. I liked all the section about blandness, but also the 24 plates of chips, because friends, in the U.K. chips go with everything.
