What’s Included

5 tasty tapas between 2

Choice of draught beer or funky cocktail

Theatre-style kitchen

Innovative take on Indian cuisine

What do you get if you cross inventive Indian cooking with tapas, the nation’s preferred way of eating?

A culinary superhero, that’s what. Imagine an edible equivalent of Batman merged with Wolverine and a just a hint of cumin. Or perhaps a little fenugreek.

Anyway, we digress. Getting back to the point… Today’s Big Deal is the perfect way to check out the changes at Cafe India in Glasgow’s Merchant City.

Fresh ideas

The restaurant recently came under new ownership and their spankingly fresh tapas menu is part of the changes which have been rung in at Cafe India.

All of the restaurant’s main ingredients are delivered from the markets each day. This fresh, locally sourced produce is cooked to order for each table.

The theatre-style open kitchen means that diners can watch as the highly skilled chefs work their magic.

By the way, their new way of approaching Indian cooking means that Cafe India aims to be as healthy as possible: low fat sauces; no ghee and chicken which is steamed or grilled.

Innovative dishes

Valid Sunday to Thursday, the deal is for two people to share five tapas plus a portion of rice and plain nan bread.

There is a lip-smacking choice of more than two dozen different tapas to decide between.

Chicken, lamb and seafood tapas all have a dedicated section of the menu. The tandoori lamb chops with caramelised onions sound fantastic as do the king prawn Punjabi masala and the tandoori nilgiri which is chicken given a South Indian twist and marinated in a soft green mint and spice yoghurt.

Veggie selections include long time faves such as pakora alongside dishes like the bhengan aloo mirch: sliced aubergines rubbed with garam masala and spice seasoning then cooked with cubed potatoes, onions, chopped tomatoes, green chillies and fresh coriander.

Cool cocktails

To complement the food, each diner can choose between a cocktail or a pint of draught Kingfisher, Stella or Tennent’s.

The cocktail list is rather hip. There are familiar tipples such as cosmos and French martinis on the list or you could opt for a taste of the subcontinent and sip on a mango mojito or a Bombay Pimms.
