How terrible is this weather! It seems to me that the snow stops being fun as soon as you start working full time. Pulling the curtains open to that snowy white scene on a weekday fills me with dread these days. I work around 25 miles away from home with a choice of two routes – countryside or city centre! On Friday it took me 4 & 1/2 hours to travel home, usually, it would take 50 mins. Leicester just cannot cope, everyone goes into meltdown! By the time I got home I wanted nothing more than the sofa, my PJ’s, wine and a takeaway.
We opted for Spice Cube in Mountsorrel. Two reasons, 1. they are very close to us so we didn’t feel too bad asking them to deliver, 2. their food is great! The Spice Cube won the 2012 Loughborough Curry Festival and their small restaurant is always busy so booking is essential if you want to eat in. With the lovely Hussein at the helm, they re doing everything right to win the title again this year. Fresh ingredients, reasonable prices and a nice choice of ‘chef specials’ lifts them above the average Indian restaurant.
