Brick Lane, London surely?

"I'm not eating that dry old chicken, put some sauce on it!" Chef reaches for the Campbell's Cream of Tomato Soup, adds some spice and the rest is, as they say, history.


I hate to dampen your pleasure of basking in the Shish Mahal's reflected glory, but I'm guessing the tikka masala would have been invented in the original restaurant up the road in Gibson Street. See http://www.glasgowwestend.co.uk/eating/shishmahal.php for a full history.



Yes, I too thought it would have been in the Gibson Street premises. Still just along the road from us......


A unique distinction shared by only seven or eight thousand other curry houses.


Gibson Street, GV. But you can bask in its shadow!

Yep, "The Patter", that fine study of the origins of many a Weegie phrase stated that the CTK was indeed a product of Curry Alley (aka the Khyber Pass)not Park St!
