Birmingham is the curry capital of the UK and believed to be the birthplace of the Balti dish. No trip to Birmingham is complete without tasting some of the fantastic Asian curries on offer so for an authentic experience head over to the centre of Asian cuisine - the Balti Triangle.
A Balti is traditionally the small pressed steel dish the curry is served in but it is now a curry in its own right. Combining fresh meat, vegetables and extra spices cooked fast over a high heat it is now one of the most popular curries in the UK. The Balti Triangle is packed with Balti Houses serving this tasty curry as well as a plenty of other Indian and Pakistani classics. The amount of restaurants in the area can make it difficult to choose one but some to keep an eye out for include Balti Towers, Saleems and Al Faisals.
The Balti triangle is a short trip from Birmingham’s city centre and encompasses Sparkhill, Balsall Heath and Moseley areas. The triangle has strong Asian links and as well as restaurants, you will find a great range of Asian fabric, fashion, jewellers, and sweet shops in the area.
