Pints & Union, a London pub in New Albany

Why would an Indiana eatery modeled on a British pub feature Indian-style tikka like this mixed-veggie model? Tikka is the most-popular dish in real English pubs!

Let’s head over to New Albany for a London pub experience at Pints & Union! It’s the real deal: They’ve got great beers, ales, porters and stouts! They’ve got that dark and cozy British pub vibe! They’ve got great fish and chips! And they’ve got Indian tikka!

Wait! What?

Yes, you heard that right: The most characteristic British pub-style dish is not the fish and chips that I can hear you assuming, but chicken tikka, the spicy chicken curry dish that Indian immigrants brought to Britain and shared with the world.

The pub-style, beer-friendly menu was created by pub owner Joe C. Phillips to fit the establishment’s commitment to be a “progressively old world Public House with classic cocktails, small plates, and comfort beers.”

The menu is relatively concise. Bear in mind that this old pub’s kitchen is no larger than the workspace within a food truck. But it does a remarkable job of turning out quality pub fare. What’s more, it finds a way to crank out about 20 food choices, plus daily specials. About half the bill of fare is marked as vegetarian or vegan. ...
