A night in London: excellent cinema, greasy food…

I ,with a bunch of friends from my MA Journalism course, decided to make an evening out of our early weekend  and went to see Un prophète.  It was judged as the best film  during the BFI London film  festival that culminated last Thursday.

Since it was the  my first french movie, I wasn’t sure what to expect. But in the end was pleasantly enthralled by the entire experience. . The film is shot in such an emphatic manner that you can almost feel the emotion of the protagonist.

Post movie, we decided to go to china town on our  food quest . Considering our limited budget we let the money pick our restaurant.  Winner was a buffet @ £6.85.  Coming from India, oily food doesn’t bother me that much. But I have never seen that much of grease in any Chinese menu. (Mind you, this is huge coming from an Indian whose stable diet was the greasy Chinjabi=Chinese + Punjabi cuisine back home).

Everything had excess oil in it., even the innocent vegetables were not spared. The chefs ‘ special list had everything deep fried. And I reckon as a dare, they had this notice displayed at every table.

I guess someone needs to tell them that people are wasting their food not because they want to but they are forced to… no one can eat that much oil even if it comes cheap..  To me it really doesn’t matter.. there is no way I am going back to that oilfield ever again.
