I take the business of eating curries very seriously. I’ve long resisted the urge to try my local Curry house for a couple of good reasons.
The first is that I’ve been going to the Aagrah in Skipton for years – so long in fact that when I phone up for a takeaway they recognise my accent and know who I am. They’ve been good to me and the quality of food and service has always been exemplary. I must have spent a fortune in there as I often eat in too – but it’s been worth every penny.
The second reason is that the Aagrah is 10 miles away. If it were nearer I’d eat there all the time, spend a lot of money, and get very fat. I love curries you see. So if my local curry house was on a par with the Aagrah, I’d have a serious problem.
Anyway, last weekend while I was out and about my girlfriend and her friend decided to try the local to see what it was like. It turns out much to my dismay that it was very good indeed. So with a heavy heart we got some takeaway this evening and I was close to tears munching my way through the meal as I realised that it was in fact excellent. If you felt a shiver run down your spine at around 21:30 GMT this evening you’ll realise why – the world has just changed.
I now have an easy option and it’s only a 2 minute walk away. I don’t have to remember to stay sober to drive and get the takeaway, I can stagger there any time I like… My name is John Conners and I’m a curry addict.
