Dec 19: Curry Original (★★)
It’s hard to believe a curry restaurant can survive in Kingston. This premier locale for Indian fare is tucked inconspicuously behind the flamboyant outpost known as “Lone Star”. The décor is convincing but the novelty wears off after a while. The simple lunch menu lists various meat options in a curry. I avoided the chicken Tikka because it was supposed to be too sweet. But my chicken curry was similarly sweet and devoid of the spices that characterize Indian cuisine. This made the meal boring and far from the exotic immersion I expected. The salad was clearly not Indian, and even so the dressing was blotched together and untossed. It lacked sophistication. Few Indians ever frequent these restaurants. I think I know why.
