Birmingham Places to Eat: Navigate the Balti Triangle
From metal to Madras, Birmingham has blessed us with balti. Though the origins of the balti are uncertain, everyone agrees that it was popularised in Birmingham. Influenced by Pakistani and Indian cooking, balti curries are unique in the manner they are served. Ingredients don’t differ from other curries, but cooked at high temperatures in thin metal bowls, the balti stands out. The Balti Triangle, as it is known in Birmingham, refers to the large number of balti houses along Ladypool Road, Stoney Lane, and Stratford Road – simply some of the best places to eat in Birmingham.
