The mysterious curry cabal

From Nights, 10:24 pm on 4 December 2023

Have you heard of the Auckland Curry Movement? They're a shadowy cabal of curry connoisseurs with zero online presence... Except every year they give out their "Best Indian Restaurant award" - along with one, short accompanying article. This years award went to "Taste Of India" in Mt Eden. We called the winning restaurant - they didn't know who was behind the curry movement. We called last years winner - same story. But the 2020 champion, Birkenhead's "The Curry Master" gave us a number. A number that was engraved on the bottom of the trophy... Disappointingly it wasn't the number for the curry movement, but for the trophy maker. But someone had to have ordered the trophy.... And it turns out that person was Adrian.
