We named our baby after a curry from our favourite restaurant… but people said we just wanted a free meal | The Sun

A DAD has told how his wife named their baby girl Pakora after her favourite curry at a restaurant.

The customer, who is a regular at the Captain's Table in Newtonabbey, Northern Ireland, shared the happy news with staff in an order note just a few days after his daughter was born.

He said he thought they would "like to know" in the order dating August 29.

The meal request included a chicken pakora burrito, a regular chicken pakora and a chicken pakora melt.

And in a section for 'restaurant order notes', the proud dad wrote: "My wife has just called our new born daughter Pakora after her fav dish from The Captain's Table… Thought you'd like to know."

The restaurant later took to social media to share the happy news, along with a picture of baby Pakora.

Diners were quick to comment, with many sharing pictures of their own children alongside names such as "chicken" and "tikka".

Others, meanwhile, joked the pair were after a freebie.

One person said: "People go to some lengths these days for a freebie."
