Porkoras at The Bristol
Teena is coming home tonight from a work trip in Vegas. The idea is to have a pizza when she gets in around 9PM. I needed a snack to tide me over before that so I stopped in to The Bristol, an English pub in our neighborhood.
They have English food on the menu. No nachos or wings here. At first I was at a loss as to what to get but then the Porkoras jumped out at me.
As you can see above, they look good and tasted great. The mild heat was a little unusual tasting. Then I did a quick search on the web and found that they are an Indian dish and might have a little Indian spice, maybe a mild curry, which I don't usually like.
I loved the huge chunks of bacon and the apple chutney on the side which match well with the porkoras and helped to tone down the heat. They aren't really hot. I just have trouble doing spicy heat these days.
But my stout, which was followed but a terrific IPA, matched well with the dish. This is something very different that I wouldn't hesitate to order again.
