5 Things We’re Excited to Eat in April

This month, we’re checking out some new flat croissants, a steak frites happy hour, Andaman prawn curry and more.

Andaman Prawn Curry from Bombay Tiger

Served in a whole tender coconut shell, this curry from Kensington restaurant Bombay Tiger makes a memorable impression right off the bat. Inside, you’ll find a delectable mix of tiger prawns, yellow mustard, yellow chilies pepper and ginger and coconut milk. Only three of these curries are made each day, so be sure to check if you’re one of the lucky diners right when you sit down.
