Rumor has it that Bangalore Express,opened a few months ago across Waterloo Station in London, is the firstof many to come. Both menu and decor of this modern, Indian fresh-foodplace have received mixed reviews, but we like the inventiveness of the’scaffolding’ used to build the booths and the upper level. Some havecalled it a recipe for disaster and other thought it looked like bunkbeds. Both may be true as you do need to climb step ladders to reachthe second level and much of the exposed structure is, indeed, made ofFastClamp, a construction-site scaffolding system.
