Culture CurryTuesday, November 06, 2007
'Culture curry' serves up authentic South Indian food in a decidedly 'south' ambience complete withTamilNadu's 'Tanjore Paintings', Andhra's shadow puppetry 'Tholu Bommalata' and Kerala's plantains and coconuts as decor elements.
This made me smile. When you traverse Kerala by road what will instantly strike you is the detailed realistic illustrations on shop shutters. This kathakali head is a worthy tribute to that.
A beautiful detail from the pillar.
A Balaji in Tanjore style welcomes you.
Coconuts strung on the pillar & the famous Andhra shadow puppet
More Andhra shadow puppetry. I thought I will leave you with this beautiful image of a dancing girl.
Culture curry has many things going for it, the decor, the food, the friendliest staff in town & a host who always stops by your table to see that you are having a good time.
Will shortly cover 2 other ventures by them- Goa Portuguesa & Diva Maharashtracha. Stay tuned :)
