Bradford wins 'Curry Capital of Britain'

The West Yorkshire town of Bradford has been voted 'Curry Capital of Britain' at the 10th edition of the annual awards ceremony.

Bradford marginally beat out previous winner Glasgow in the competition to top the annual tables for the third time.

Organizers of the competition said Bradford is a city that "seems to eat, breathe and even export curry".

This year’s entry took the form of a film highlighting the success of Bradford’s curry industry.

The four restaurants chosen by the public to represent Bradford this time were Aagrah, Akbar's, Shimla Spice, and Zouk.

The region's large South Asian migrant community - most of whom arrived in the 1950's and 1960's to work in West Yorkshire's booming textile industry - means the area has one of the highest concentrations of curry houses in Britain.

From traditional, budget eateries like Karachi - originally set up as an all-day canteen for textile mill workers - to more sophisticated curry houses like Saffron Desi, Bradford offers an array of choices for the curry connoisseur.
