Blyth Valley MP urging residents to vote for top curry house

Curry lovers in Blyth Valley are being urged to tell their local MP about their favourite restaurant as part of a prestigious national competition.

Curry lovers in Blyth Valley are being urged to tell their local MP about their favourite restaurant as part of a prestigious national competition.

Blyth Valley MP Ronnie Campbell wants to hear from constituents about what they think are ‘top of the poppadoms’ when it comes to local South Asian eateries.

He says he will nominate the restaurant which gets most votes for the annual Tiffin Cup, which has now been running for five years.

Curry fan Ronnie has put forward the Pan Ahar restaurant, in Blyth, for the contest in the past – and in 2008 it reached the House of Commons cook-off and came second.

He said: “This competition has been very popular. It gives local chefs the chance to see what is being done nationally, and also allows them a chance to compete at a high level.’’

Anyone in Blyth Valley who wants to propose their favourite should contact the MP’s office in Blyth on 01670 -363050.

Entries for the Tiffin Cup have to be in by July 30.
