Nanglo Cafe and Restaurant, Aldershot

Aldershot’s historic connection with Gurkha soldiers has led to a large Nepalese community settling in the local area.

There have always been the odd few restaurants here extolling the virtues of Nepalese cuisine, but the increasing audience has seen a rise in outlets and the growth of a more specialist approach.

The other night we visited Nanglo (46 Grosvenor Road, Aldershot). Its website had talked of a menu containing 30 dishes from Nepal, and I was interested to see what new things there might be to try.

Bottega dei Sapori, Alton

A few weeks ago I had a day off work. I had various errands to run, and calculated that I would be passing through Alton (Hampshire) at around lunch-time.

I actually went to sixth form college in Alton, and even worked there for a couple of years, but I hadn’t really been there for about 10 years, so thought I should check out what had changed when it came to food.

Malaysia Food Exploration: Murtabak

On our first night in Kuala Lumpur, by the time we had escaped the airport and reached our hotel it was heading towards 9pm. A bit frazzled (we didn’t fly into the airport we thought we would, couldn’t track down the right bus and suspect we were misled over the taxi), we couldn’t be bothered to head off across town on a food odyssey so popped into the Zam Zam Restaurant (135 Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman) next door to have a little something.

We quickly spied that they served murtabak, which is a fried flat bread cooked around a filling. Having scanned the choices available I opted for a small beef murtabak and H decided to have the same but with chicken.
