The food seems to be steller but the conditions not so much, I kinda still want to go, what do you m8s think?
Funny as fuck do it book a hostel fly there stay the night maybe two eat till you pass out then tell the qt3.14 of the epic food dragon you slayed the golden shit you laid proceed to lay every fair maiden in the watering hole after wooing them with your tale. Tip fedora. Come back home satisfied. Post back here your journey
I'm probably going to do it, I need to get hold of a bloke on couchsurfing so I have somewhere to crash and hopefully I can get a lift there and back, I could pay for a hostel but I'm not keen on a taxi-ing everywhere. The buffets is only on friday and saturday nights.
Ah yeah. I'm from Tas originally, live in Perth now tho.you should fly down to Brissy and get yourself a feed this weekend man. Stay at a hostel, check in on Friday and meet some people at the bar at the hostel, tell them what you're doing and see if they want to join you, good way to meet different ppl.
I stay in hostels all the time where I live, just for fun
I live near Sydney, I'll fly up with you m8. I'll dine with you. I'll caress you. I love Indian.
OP here, I'm retarded, Jetstar's cheapest return flights are actually $178, $89 to get there, $89 to get back. I was keen if it was just $100 or so to get there and back but now idk. I'm not cashed up.
I don't have any scales and I haven't weighed myself in a while but I'd say I'm about 128 kgs, at 6'4. This is me after a 5k last Saturday. My love for butter chicken overpowers the need to keep it healthy.
What about using one of these? Would it suck as bad as just getting a store bought jar of sauce?
1. Fuck everyone that says this isn't a good idea. Travel for any old reason? Your the only one doing it right.
2. And to anyone that is concerned about cleanlinesses of any Indian establishment this may seem strange but I have a strange way of judging an Indian places. The more I don't want to see in the kitchen the better I know it will taste.
Probably not bad. I always keep Garam masala, chaat masala, tumeric, Indian chili powder, ground cumin and ground coriander on deck. You can really make a lot of curries with these and aren't too difficult to find.
If you don't have autism, cooking is really easy.
>watch a YouTube video
>do the same thing person on the video does
>take a firey shit
I approve. I think Aussies should do more in-country travelling and not leave their country, EVER. In fact, could you encourage the bogans up in Whistler to LEAVE so they can travel in their own country and far, far away from civilised Canadian folk?
OP here, fuck bogans, we're not all pic related though. Some of us aren't piece of shit ice addicts and are actually good people.
OP here, fucking hell. I just went to book flights on Jetstar and the site is fucking up, I called them and was told they could book it on the phone but it's an extra $30. They can suck my dick.
I've messaged a bloke on couch surfing to see if I can crash at his and he hasn't responded yet, but I just saw you can post a public trip, you enter the date you're arriving and leaving and give a description people can read and decide if they want to meet or host you. I was filling it in but now I'm hesitating. I don't want to attract undesirables, I'm also a pretty quiet and introverted dude, but I can be pretty talkative and interesting if I choose to. Should I throw my hesitation to the wind and make the post, m8s?
Haha, I got hold of a m8 who lives there and is gonna tag along, it's gonna be a messy weekend. No one on CS is keen to host me it seems. My m8 is sorting out a hotel.
I ended up trying this last night, it turned out brown instead of red/orange and was kinda spicy, didn't taste like the butter chicken I get from the local Indian place near me. 10 more days m8s.
It definitely exists in India.
My Indian housemate loved it, said it was his favourite dish.
FYI OP, the Hindi name is murgh makhani.
Not that that doesn't mean that it's an Anglo dish but it started and exists in India.
OP here, yeah man. You can get it in India, I saw this a while ago.
Gordan Ramsey tries butter chicken from a famous restaurant in Delhi. I bet it's way different then the butter chicken I'm used to.
Nearly every review I've read about it gives it 4 - 5 stars for the food m8. It shall be glorious. I'm psyched as. I've had a few people offer me places to stay off couchsurfing but my m8 who lives there which I'll be doing it all with is trying to tee up a place for us both to crash so I'm telling the blokes on CS that I'm keeping my cards open and will let them know closer to the date. My only real problem is the time I'm flying out Monday which is 6am, I might have to get onto one of them to give me a lift to the airport.
This is my favorite thread. I fucking love when people do stuff like this, you have a goal, it's all yours, fucking own it. Plus I got a hearty kek out of this. I am excited for the follow up. You better keep us posted OP
Holy fuck m8s.
>create a public trip on CS a week ago
>no bites for a few days
>get a msg from this bloke, he hasn't filled in his profile yet though
>he offers his spare single bed
>ok, tell him I'm keen
>he deletes his profile after
>send him a text if it's still cool that I stay
>he makes a new profile and fills it in
>never mentioned previously that he's bisexual, likes 'adult movies (X rated)", (who the fuck puts that in their profile?)
>in the additional info section he puts
>This is a HOTEL STUDIO ROOM. It does NOT have any Kitchen facilities. There is a Microwave Oven and Kettle in the room. A pub/restaurant in the Hotel and many other eating/drinking places near by. There is an onsite Laundry.
I do NOT smoke. If you do, it must be on the balcony only with the door closed. There is NO SMOKING in the room or anywhere in the building.
The Single Bed is FREE. The CATCH is that I do snore a bit, so you will need Ear Plugs. LOL.
This bloke is a fucking loon. He lives in the perfect spot in the city though.
I msged that Indian cunt that I've found another place to stay and thanks anyway and he replies that there's something suspect with me and he's reported me to CS and the Police, haha. The fags just trying to get a rise out of me.
Decided to ignore trying to find a couch and just booked a hotel instead. It would have been easier to use CS if I was just visiting alone, but I'm tearing it up with my mate, getting drunk af and making a weekend of it.
I randomly got sent a dick pic and was asked to meet up for sex today. I rang the number and went off at the cunt and he blubbered that someone posted this number in the m4m section on Locanto.com.au, it's like an Aussie equivalent of craigslist. That gay Indian cunt did it and canceled service for his number.
Anon i know the feeling. I also love Indian food. Once when i was living in China i was bored in August with nothing to do, so i checked where i could travel. Found cheap as fuck tickets to Kuala Lumpur and its curries and went there to spend a few days. I had already been there before so you could say that my main goal was eating curries.
I stayed at a capsule hotel and believe me, the whole capsule smelled like garlic naan after three days having Indian for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Go for it.
Another fag sent me a text today I rang the number and told him some cunt has got hold of my number and made that ad on locanto, I made him send me the link for it. I contacted locanto and requested for it to be taken down right fucking now, they've only got a web contact form you fill out and someone is supposed to email you in a few days. I'm thinking of just fucking this sim off and getting a new number.
Just got a new number and booked for the weekend at a lush hotel in the city, this is gonna be sick.
I've never heard of it, m8, A quick Google search tells me it's a multi-course meal with traditionally 36 courses? Sounds glorious!
True, I've been thinking of flying to America at some point and trying some of the massive meals, maybe hit up a few buffets. I need to research it, I shouldn't spend so much money just for a ticket to somewhere to eat food.
6 days away m8s, just jogged another 5k.
>tfw in Indian restaurant tonight with my dad
>based dad knows everyone in the restaurant business in my town
>talking and bantering with the owner who is Indian
>I ask him where the bathroom is and he looks at me, puts his hand on my shoulder, and says
>"there is no bathroom, you need to go out on the street"
> he then laughs and shows me where the bathroom is
>whole time I was thinking of poointheloo.jpg
Also OP I had butter chicken.
>it turns out locanto needs police involvement in order to ban his account, I also know what he looks like and where he lives and a general idea where he works just quietly.
Unless it's a reverse-personal-army but I guess you'll find out regardless.
Geez, could have waited one day for Amazon prime delivery of some Sharwood's simmer sauce for the butter chicken (or some other brand). What kind of backwards world do you live in that this is cause for a trip. Learn to cook! I fly for free s an airline brat 3rd generation...but it'd be for something really delicious and special that I'd actually get a craving I can't handle in my own kitchen most of the time. NOLA for some checklist of items, a good dozen or so to tick off there, sojourn for outstanding BBQ of course, and I've hit up NYC for neighborhood favorites, from donuts to delis.I have favorites in all the major airports for connections snacks. Indian food is good, when you have a crowd and you can order a good amount for the table. But, a single dish you want? Cook it up, can even sprinkle it fresh cilantro, and bake some fresh kulcha.
I'm learning to cook atm, I could cook butter chicken no problem if I wanted to. I'm not going on this trip just to try the one dish, of course I'll try whatever else. Also if you honestly think store bought simmer sauce will give the same flavor than actually doing it the proper way, you're doing it fucking wrong m8.
I'm thinking of doing another 5k on the Saturday, there's a free parkrun held just down the road from my hotel. I'm keen to smash a huge amount of food at the buffet but diet and exercise is also important my friends.
Finally got to the place after a massive fuck around, managed to smash 2 massive plates, a fuck load of naan bread, rice, butter chicken and lamb korma. I didn't pace myself. Had a few beers and felt sick. Ended up throwing up round 9pm. Not sure if I'll return tomorrow night m8s.
This was before the naan bread came out, it's in Brisbane, Australia.
I'm back home now, didn't bother going to the buffet on the Saturday, it was good food, but not orgasmic. It was too expensive to get there anyway. I had to walk the streets this morning at 3am to catch a train to the airport. I saw 3 homeless looking people and they all tried to stop me and hassle me for money. One faggot stood in my way a few meters away from me and put out his hand in a stop motion, I raised my voice and yelled "The fuck do you want"? Scared him a little and he tells me to wait and I just told him to fuck off and kept walking. I'll try cooking it now, should be pretty easy.
Fuck as if Canadians are any better, at least when you meet Aussies traveling they are up for it, Canadians are just reserved and care what everyone thinks of their boring ass country.
It was the alcohol I was also drinking, coupled with the massive amount of food. I was actually attempting a drinking game when I spewed, I don't normally drink. It wasn't a massive spew but it equaled a bad time.
Yes, it was good to get out and travel a bit. I'm basically a shut in otherwise, but it fucking sucked that Marahani was such a massive way away from my hotel. It made it way too expensive. The hotel also asked for a $300 payment upfront as collateral for any possible damages to the room for the stay. It left me fucking broke, I only had $200 left.
