Churchill's Pub in Little Haiti is a lot of things to a lot of people - pub, dive saloon, sports bar, last bastion of "real" aka analog music, and so on. To scores of rugby and soccer fans, usually English, Irish, or Australian, it's also a great place for some grub. We Americans need to get on the bandwagon.
For as long as I can remember, folks have flocked to Churchill's for the curry ($6.00 - $8.00). Curry Wednesdays used to provide white rice and different curries via buffet, but now you order your meal and it is served to you. We were asked to come and try the new standardized recipes recently. Portions are still plentiful and it is highly unlikely that you will get to taste authentic English-style curry and Indian curry together in any other restaurant in Florida. More importantly, there are now two additional items that will rock your world.
I personally liked the lamb and beef curries best. They were seasoned to perfection, hearty, and the meat had perfect texture. The chicken and vegetable curries were also good. And with the poppadoms, rice, and chutney, any of the curries make a great Wednesday night meal. Hell, if you're lucky, you can get Churchill's curry the other six days of the week.
