Curry festival spices up London

Britons are famed for their love of curry and, over the years, the country’s taste for South Asian food has evolved into a unique blend of cuisine specially created for British palates. Nowhere is this more apparent than at the so-called ‘curry mile’ in London’s Brick Lane, which this week celebrates what is billed as “the only curry festival in Europe.” The two week-long festival takes place in the street which received its name during the rebuilding period after the Great Fire of London.
