Bradford – The eagerly awaited opening of Bradford’s newest eatery The Curry Counter has finally arrived. Situated in the heart of Bradford, The Curry Counter promises to give its customer a unique eating experience offering an array of dishes to cater for all appetites.
Offering a sneak peak to its customers yesterday, the grand affair attracted visitors from across the country to catch a glimpse of things to come.
A flamboyant balloon clad entrance accompanied by traditional Punjabi ‘dhol’ players to add to the occasion, Tariq Haq, the owner of The Curry Counter, was pleased but nervous with the opening.
He told Urban Echo, “We have worked really hard to get to this point and it has been a dream for us as a family to open The Curry Counter. We have invested a lot of time and money into this project and I just hope that the customers enjoy the experience of dining at The Curry Counter.
“We can offer a unique experience here as the menu is very diverse in its offering and can cater for everyone. You can sit in and eat or simply order and takeout. We can promise service and food at the highest level of standard and I just hope that people will visit us and enjoy the experience.”
Based on Ingleby Road, The Curry Counter has ample car parking spaces and is visually striking from its exterior. The striking green and white sign ‘By Pakeezah… The Curry Counter’ welcome customers as they enter the venue to be met by an open space dining arrangement with ambient lighting and a welcoming aroma.
The fresh food is prepared before your eyes in an open-style kitchen as you can chose your own ingredients to create the perfect dish. An eclectic menu is on offer as you read through what is on offer. For starters you can opt for the barbecue and grill range, deep fried range or the ‘desi’ range for the more traditional curry lovers. A wide range of vegetarian starters are also available. Starters that stand out are the grilled haddock fish, grilled king prawns, Pakeezah mixed grill and succulent lamb chops.
Moving to the main dishes, the Chicken Balti, Karahi Kofta, Paaya, Magaz and Karahi Fish are favourites for the traditionalists or you can opt for the Korma or Makhani Special if you are not a big fan of spices. Vegetarian options include Tarka Daal, Pakora Curry and Chana Dall Karela to name a few. Accompanying sundries include a wide selection of rice and breads.
If that hasn’t filled you up, for those with a sweet tooth, desserts and cakes are aplenty with traditional Asian sweets such as fresh Jalebi, Ras Malai and Kheer or cheesecakes, gateau and ice creams.
Bradford already has a thriving reputation nationally as the ‘Curry Capital’ and this latest addition further solidifies the city’s reputation as the premiere location to enjoy the finest of curries.
