STOP PRESS: Scenes Of Burly Joy As TATTGOC Nominated For Scottish Curry Award

Crikey! It's not often we update the blog with breaking news but this is one story just too damn big to wait until Thursday ... your friendly neighbourhood blog Trampy and The Tramp's Glasgow Of Curry has been recognised by the venerable Scottish Curry Awards 2010. Trampy, The Tramp and the whole TATTGOC brotherhood have been nominated in the Curry Lover(s) Of The Year category. Yes, the very same category that First Minister Alex Salmond won last year ...

In a prepared statement, the Tramps said: "We are thrilled and humbled to be nominated in the Scottish Curry Awards 2010 and cannae wait to find out what happens on the big night of June 15. Every member of TATTGOC genuinely loves curry, and each other. But mostly curry."

The 2010 nominations were revealed in The Sunday Post, and many of the categories are too close to call. Our fair hometown of Glasgow is represented in the Restaurant Of The Year category by Bakhara, somewhere TATTGOC have yet to try, although we could just about see its "Healthy Indian Cuisine" sign through the window during our visit to Sibbo's Delhi Dhabba. We can, however, fully endorse The Banana Leaf, nominated in the Takeaway Of The Year category. And while we haven't officially visited Chillies West End for the blog, we wish 'em the best of luck for Chef Of The Year. The other big gongs – the Curry King/Queen and Lifetime Achievement award – will be announced on the night. Last year's ceremony was a hoot, even if TATTGOC ambassadors Trampy and The Bulldosa failed to meet Miss Scotland.

To show your support for the entire TATTGOC crew in this exciting new chapter for Glasgow's spiciest and most pun-laden blog, become our pal on the Facebook ... and you know you can always get in touch by emailing

Take that, Terence Stamp.

Aye ready!
