In the UK, Friday nights is Curry Night. To celebrate the end of a hard week of work, Brits like to go down to the boozer for a pint or two of their favourite tipple, and thence to their local curry house for a Chicken Tikka Masala, a Madras or, if they’re feeling in a particularly masochistic mood, a Vindaloo or two. That sort of northern Indian cooking was something I really missed when I came back to live in Penang.
The beach-side Holiday Inn Resort’s pleasant ground floor Terrace Café is a great place to chill out even if you’re just looking to have a sundowner or two. Their ice-cold Holiday Inn Joy Cocktail, made with white rum and pineapple juice, is the perfect drink with which to watch the evening turn into dusk.
The aforementioned Chicken Tikka Masala was good, with a thick, strong gravy, and so was the Jhingga Masala, prawns in a spicy masala sauce. Those who prefer their dishes less spicy might prefer the vegetarian Dhal Makhani, lentils cooked in a thick, creamy sauce, or the dry cauliflower and potato Aloo Gobi Curry.
