I believe a Tiffin service is some sort of catering thing. I seem to remember hearing that while on my travels...but heck...I may be wrong!

Ani, I had no clue either, so ran it in a search engine. It's something Hindi. Couldn't narrow it down any further than that, though.

Sorry I don't know of any such service in CLT.

The first time i saw such a thing was on British chef, Gordon Ramsey's Kitchen Nightmares tv show....he helped increase sales of an Indian restaurant by getting them to introduce a tiffin service at lunchtimes.

AFAIK, the tiffin refers to the metal containers that the food is delivered in; they are a series of cylindrical tins that inter-lock and allow the food to be compartmentalized - one might have soup, then rice, then curry etc -quite ingenious.

Hopefully this pic turns-out:

Well, MegaX - thank you so much for sharing this w/ us! I was feeling especially ignorant b/c I had no idea what the poster was referring to!

That does look quite ingenious . . .

I wonder if anyone does have this type of service here . . . if not, someone should start it! I would bet there would be a lot of business uptown at lunchtime.

Now I am hungry!!!!

That looks like one of these things that I bought overseas a few years ago. Thought it would be useful from a practical standpoint but it was so unusual looking it became a kitchen decoration instead.

Given the apparent size of the Indian population in the Ballantyne/Blakeney area, there is a real shortage of Indian restaurants. Below Rt. 51 there is only one that I now of -- Nirvana. If somebody opened an inexpensive take-out Indian down here (say at Cedar Walk or the Shops at Ardrey Kell), I bet it would do gangbuster business!
