Vying for the title of 'Curry Capital of Britain' with Birmingham, Manchester, and London, West Yorkshire - and Bradford in particular - has perhaps more curry houses per capita than anywhere else on the British Isles. Start with over-the-top extravaganzas like Mumtaz Paan House
and chains like Akbar's
which cater to an increasingly affluent clientele. Contrast that with the hole-in-the-wall places you never knew existed, such as Chach Valley
. You also won't just find halal markets here, but halal supermarkets
such as Al Halal
. Plenty to eat in sight of the old mills and the Yorkshire Dales.
