Using that same reasoning you could say that eating Indian food in the UK goes against the logic of sticking with bangers and mash, steak and kidney pie, boiled beef and potatoes, beans and sausage, or roast beef and Yorkshire pudding. People like variety, and you can't get the sort of spices found in Indian food in Greek food. Yes, certainly try all the local dishes when you travel, but there's nothing wrong with something familiar and tasty.
And where does it say that every meal has to be an indigenous one?
"When travelling, I'd opt for local food any time."
Yes, but EVERY time?
What is interesting is that Mykonos has a famous sushi restaurant.
All things are possible. Lots of lambs and goats in Greece to make your finest Indian dishes. :)
BLL, well, it may sound odd, but I really haven't felt like going for an Indian meal in Italy. I've only been to Greece once - a long time ago - but I doubt an Indian or a Chinese meal would take my fancy when in there this September.
Of course it's fine for everyone to have a variety of culinary experiences when on holiday, I was just curious about this. It's great that there is a wide variety of restaurants to cater to all tastes.
Two things from me.
Firstly, if you want to try Taj Mahal, you'll have to find the bleedin' place first. We went to the restaurants along that street (Balcony, Pecos, Amalfi, etc) and never came across this one. It must be right at the top of the hill if it's still there.
Secondly, after having the worst curry (I use the term advisedly) I have ever had in Skiathos Town a couple of years back, I will stick with 'The Spice' or 'Gate of India' back home thank you very much.
The only decent Indian place I've ever found on holiday was in Lanzarote.
Well, I appear to have created some discussion here. Tuija - I guess whilst you are in Greece you'll be reading no English magazines, eating no Ice Creams made from Poland etc; and of course won't be drinking a can of coke made in Istanbul. Instead you'll be living on Feta cheese and Ouzo solidly for the duration of your stay, whilst travelling only by donkey. Forgive me..
Out of interest as a fanatic of Indian Food I actually try and find an indian restaurant wherever I am in the world - to compare and see what it's like in different countries - so the Taj Mahal had to be found and tried. (Call it a really bad hobby if you will ;-)
I'm off for pie and mash in keeping with my current location! :-)
Sunshine, I can sincerely say that I actually find your hobby or interest in Indian food and cooking around the world quite interesting.
As I wrote in my previous post: it is great that there is a wide variety of different restaurants to cater to all tastes. Of course we all want to have enjoyable meals when on holiday, regardless what kind of cuisine is our favourite.
Hey Sunshine. So sorry to hear you didn't like it. We had the curried chicken and some veg as well (and of course, some roti). It was really nice when we went. The only disappointment for me was they had no naan bread but we thought the roti was ok. I too know good Indian and have eaten it all over the world, including London whenever I get there, perhaps you caught them on a bad night. Anyway, sorry the recommendation didn't pay off for you this time. Luckily for you there are lots of lovely little spots to eat there hey?
I just remembered that the on the one occasion I ate at Taj Mahal we ordered Indian food and they asked if we could wait until their Indian food chef arrived in 15 minutes, otherwise it would be cooked by their Chinese food chef. I wonder if that was why the food was bland when those who were disappointed ate there.
