Bigger on the Inside

Every morning on my way to work, I walk by this Police Call Box and invariably think of my brothers. Nerds.

A Little Bit of India…Well, NY

The other weekend, Leah and I found ourselves on the High Street, having spent a chunk of the morning searching for various kitchen implements.

Realizing that our options for a lunch other than sandwiches were considerably limited, we consulted Time Out and discovered that one of the best parts of New York City had just come to London.

The Kati Roll Company. A magical place where £6 gets you two brilliant Indian rolls stuffed with delicious, spicy goodness. Leah and I first tried the Kati Roll Company in NYC, as their shop was directly opposite where we were staying. In our five day stay in NY, I think we ate there two or possible three times…

One of the best parts of the Kati Roll Company is their decor. The entire restaurant is painted a vibrant orange and the walls are adorned with vintage Bollywood posters. Some of them are particularly brilliant: Bollywood versions of Hollywood blockbusters. This location had a poster for The Matrix but Leah wouldn't let me take a photo of it, given that there was a family eating at the table underneath it. Anyway, the posters, paired with the fact that the entire clientele were Indian expats, really helped create a unique and almost surreal experience.
