Curry Burger Bar

Curry on the move

Periodically, the big burger chains (in the UK) sell indian style speciality burgers. This actually means that there is something worth eating there for a while. Unfortunately these are time limited offers so after 2 weeks we're back to blando-offal burgers. What I propose is either a separate chain or a subsidiary of a larger chain selling delicious curry burgers all the time.

       Or how about a way to have snack Indian food which is cheaper and avoids the need to set foot in burger bar in the first place... buy a pakora, a samosa or a bhaji and sandwich it between two mini naan, or bits of a normal naan. These have the advantage of being available in many small supermarkets and sandwich bars, they are ok to eat cold, and they are self-sufficient (carbo+protein+vegetable+fat (almost all your major food groups, all you need now is a beer and a cigarette and I'm sure you'll be happy)). Chips with dahl dip though... mmm.

       Only this weekend I saw a new fast food place in our local town (UK) called "Curry in a Hurry". I was only driving past so I didn't sample the place, but it looked remarkably like a Burger Bar - not sure if there was a drive through, but it fits the idea, sorry.

       Around here it's either feast or phantom. I can't make myself believe you'd sell enough to cover your rent.

       I think it's a great idea, sure to sell millions, I just feel sorry that someone else came up with the idea "Curry in a Hurry" It looked like a very large outlet and was also extremely busy. Buy shares instead?

       On one hand, I love the idea--Curry burgers all the time sound good. On the other hand, this idea is totally derivative--saying that there should be a minor variation on a certain kind of restaurant is hardly inventing something, just refining it.

       Still an idea though, so valid.

       There's a "Hurry Curry of Tokyo" at Sawtelle and Olympic (Little Tokyo) in L.A.
Vivisimo Search for "Hurry Curry" doesn't return a result for "H... C... " all by it's lonesome in US - there is one in Rose Bay, Australia. It'd go over big in Chicago what with Harry Carey ...(R.I.P.)
24 hrs. later - Hurry Curry of Tokyo in L.A. even got mentioned in current issue of Rolling Stone.
Yeah, we're hipsters
