I ate at an interesting restaurant in Malahide, Ireland. It was a place called “Jaipur Experience”, a fancy Indian restaurant. It was interesting mostly because it was fancy.
The whole idea of fancy Indian food is just a clash of cuisine. If you imagine fancy French food, with extraneous vegetables and things cut pretty and arranged perfectly, and combine that with Indian spices, that’s exactly what this place is like. Considering that Indian food is generally meant to be eaten with bare hands, it just felt weird to eat fancy food like that. Odd.
