While the dull "other" election was talked about as Boris took his crown again we were consumed - consumed! - with our own fight in W12 for a Coriander Coronation of the Best Bush Curry of 2012.
But it had to have only one winner and after the twists and turns the Nepalese Tandoori turned out to have more fans than Rajput, despite the fact that Rajput's fan base were generally more shouty and vocal about their curry house's case.
Rajput's on 29. The two had been neck and nexk for much of the contest in which Rajput took the lead for much of the contest. Further down the field wildcard entry Thai house Esarn Kheaw put in a late challenge for the third place spot but just lost out to Kathmandu Inn by a single vote. Shimla Kirch on Askew Road and Ashanti tied with 3 votes apiece for joint 5th while AskAway, also on Askew Road, came just behind with 2.
I based these choices on those that had been put forward by many of you in a Twitter debate on this subject two weeks ago and it motivated 104 people to take part in the keenly fought contest - although one reader was outraged that his own late entry wasn't able to join the fray!
So there we have it - Nepalese Tandoori is crowned King of the Curryhouses in Shepherd's Bush. What shall we vote on next?!
