The “get this baby out” curry at Rajasthan Rifles

Although a walk up to The Peak is probably out of the question at this stage in the game, a curry followed by a waddle around the top has to be a winning combo to get things moving. Spice up your last few days of pregnancy with a visit to Rajasthan Rifles. Pick something packed full of flavour and a hint of heat, such as the chatpate jeera aloo (HKD158), or cumin potatoes tossed with ginger, green chilli, and chaat masala. And if this doesn’t trigger the baby to make an appearance, at least you can enjoy the views and celebrate how far you’ve come.
