I rarely experience food envy when eating with Carney. This is mainly because he orders tripeand other such items that are not widely used because they are disgusting and because he’s happy to share. (NB: I’m also happy to share/speed eatthe good bits from multiple dishes.) Anyway, new experience for me on two fronts when we visited@Shelley’s in High St Preston – not only food envy but curry envy. Has theworld gone mad? I don’t reallycome at curry, but the goat was vunderbar. He ordered with extra spinach and extra veg and roti ($1.90). And then roti again because the rotiwas awesome. I would say bestcurry I’ve ever had. Spicy too.
Coincidentally, the owner/chef at Shelley is called Shelley too. She is disarmingly friendly. So disarming she blew my cover as an epic food critic – I revealed all under the slightest of cross examinations. Just like the time I dobbed Tommy J into the police for stealing bottles of wine from a 40th birthday party across the road from my house. Sorry TJ. I was only wearing a singlet and those police were intimidating.
