The great British curry crisis

Recommended Posts

Very interesting. As discussed in the article, it's sort of surprising that the curry houses have retained their individual mom & pop family ownership as long as they have, vs. being pushed out by a "fast casual chain" version of themselves.  And the fact that 80-90% of curry house owners can trace their roots to a modest sized city in Bangladesh is rather amazing.  I imagine it will be an interesting story to watch going forward.  Thanks for posting.

Very interesting - they're seeing similar problems in Singapore where profits of hawkers stalls is declining, and the younger generation are now university educated and don't want to do the hard work of running one...  the government of Singapore is very concerned about this, since the hawker stalls are part of their heritage, and are constantly having conferences among food professionals and public opinion experts as to how to solve the problem.

Parliament has a curry committee? Why can't congress have a pizza committee, a coney committee, a burger committee...?

   BTW-for the record- I do see this is important. I would consider anything that could ,potentially, cause mass unemployment an important issue. And, I am glad to see that the government is trying to do something about it. Sometimes my silly/stupid- side gets the better of me when it shouldn't.
