K. took me out to Chonor House for a very enjoyable birthday lunch. I am celebrating being 42 years young and feeling quite good about it. There seems to be a symmetry about the number, not to mention being the meaning of life if Douglas Adams is to be believed.
Chonor House is the most swanky hotel in McLeod Ganj and regular clients include Richard Gere and Goldie Hawn. It enjoys a very quiet location with excellent views of Tsuglagkhang temple (the temple residence of the Dalai Lama).
The food is always of the highest quality and prices reasonable. The garlic and almond soup and the diced fried potatoes in rosemary are highly recommended and their crispy lamb is the best in Town.
