It doesn’t matter where in the world you are, if you get the urge for a curry there will be no stopping you. Sometimes the thought of the entire world’s food delicacies, which can may we add all be found in London, become obliterated as the hungry curry addict searches for his fix.
It has to be said that if these strong curry urges were felt when in upmarket Chelsea, the Indian food lover would certainly be spoilt for choice about where to head to for their intense curry fix.
Take a look at three of the best Indian restaurants in Chelsea.
The Rasoi can be found at Lincoln Street, SW3.This award-winning restaurant is Michelin starred and serves extremely high quality food. Although top-notch Indian cuisine in the heart if Chelsea does come at a price and if you wanted to order the “Prestige” taster it would set you back £89.00 per person. This mind-bogglingly named dish consists of a banana wrapped mustard tilapia with aubergine artari cous-cous, mango-tellicherry pepper chicken plus white tomato mkhni with Goan cafreal rice!
Rasoi means kitchen in Indian, which is the most important room of an Indian household. Rasoi’s location certainly warrants the high regard of kitchens in India – in a 100-year-old Chelsea townhouse. You even have to ring the door bell in order to gain admittance.
Some people just can’t get going in the morning without a coffee or two. Others need a midday pick-me-up to help drive away modern-life drowsiness. Coffee is a legal high for the masses. It’s society’s acceptable way of staying awake and on the ball. It has to be said that some coffee tastes better than others and some of the places that serve coffee are also superior to others.
According to research carried out in 2011, Londoners are more addicted than ever to their daily black coffee, latte, flat white or cappuccino. In order to whet the city’s seemingly collective caffeine addiction, there are 1,522 chain coffee shops in London, serving differing choices from around the world.
With such a phenomenal amount of coffee shops on their doorstep, where an earth do Londoners and visitors head to in order to get the best cup of coffee available?
Here’s three of the best coffee shops in London:
Kaffeine has been setting new standards of coffee making since it opened in 2009. An Australian/New Zealand collaboration, Kaffeine bases its coffee, loose-leaf teas and food on the popular and hospitable coffee shop culture of Australia and New Zealand.
Beans are roasted and ground on the premises and the coffee tastes as it is supposed to taste. The ambience inside this popular shop is bustling and friendly.
Kaffeine is located on Great Titchfield Street in the heart of Fitzrovia, just two minutes away from Oxford Circus.
Fratelli Deli, Chelsea
Fratelli Deli is a relatively small chain with less than a dozen shops around London. The Italian coffee served in Fratelli Deli is genuine and strong.
Cadogan Hall Chelsea might not be the most well-known building in the UK but if you happen to be one of the Chelsea elite the chances are you’ll be familiar with it. This dazzling hall was erected in 1907 by the same man who designed the Napier Museum in Kerala, India. The name of this forward-thinking architect was Robert Fellows Chisholm.
Since 2001 Cadogan Hall has been the principle venue of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. This grade II listed building is a former Christian Science church but due to a dwindling congregation and general disrepair, the hall was sold in 1996 to Harrods’ owner Mohamed Al Fayed. In 2000 Al Fayed sold the venue to the Cadogan Estates, which have been Chelsea’s largest landowners since the 18th century. Cadogan Estates are owned by Earl Cadogan. The importance of the Cadogan name to this upmarket area of London is demonstrated by the nearby naming of Cadogan Square and Cadogan Place.
The hall, which is built in the Byzantine style, was refurbished in 2004 at a cost of £7.5 million. It now hosts events of a diverse nature all year round. As well as being home to the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, the venue has been used as a recording spot, which is something that can only really happen if a building’s acoustic properties are extremely good.
