Tikli Bottom

Don’t laugh, this is not a euphamism for a case of Delhi Belly.

Don’t laugh, this is not a euphamism for a case of Delhi Belly. Rather Tikli Bottom is a very attractive looking bed and breakfast that L had the chance of experiencing on a recent working conference. She was very complimentary about the service, the cleanliness and the hospitality. However, her comments about the memorable meals and the fact that it did not “smell like India” stood out for me.

Now I should clarify what I mean by the smell of India. We have had the chance to experience some great places here, even some out of the way locations, but it is very hard to get away from the background smell of diesel, sweat, refuse and construction. Even in remote locations you still get this smell (even on golf courses miles out of the city). For a location that is as close to Delhi as Tikli Bottom to be free of this smell is remarkable (in fact I had assumed impossible).

The second thing is that whilst we have tasted some great food here, we have seldom had great meals. There is a big gap between having one great plate in an otherwise forgettable dinner and having an imaginative and interesting spread of food across the table. It seems Tikli Bottom had the latter, which in itself is reason enough to inspire me to visit sometime soon.
