An MP has added some Enfield spice to a national competition by picking a local restaurant for the running.

Enfield North MP Nick de Bois has chosen Nirala Tandoori, in Silver Street, Enfield for the Tiffin Cup 2014.

The competition celebrates south Asian restaurants in the country and each restaurant is selected by MPs.

Mr de Bois said: “I am delighted for the nomination for Nirala Tandoori has been accepted and will take part in this year’s Tiffin Cup. This is such a prestigious competition and I look forward to welcoming them to the House of Commons should they win their regional heat.”

The grand final will take place Tuesday, July 8, at the House of Commons.
