Many a headline is predicting that the next few months are to be the coldest on record – a prediction which has been made every year since records began.
Whether this winter turns out to be Baltic or balmy, today’s Big Deal with Cafe India can ensure that your winter is warmed with a delicious, curry-inspired glow.
With vouchers valid from the start of January to the end of March 2014, this offer would make a fun stocking filler.
Long running restaurant
One of Glasgow’s longest running Indian restaurants, Cafe India can be found in the lively Merchant City area of Glasgow.
On Albion Street, Cafe India is a short walk from the City Halls, Old Fruitmarket and the Tron Theatre which means that it is perfectly located for a pre-show curry.
Recently under new management, the kitchen brigade at Cafe India creates menus which combine Indian ingredients, local produce, European influences and Indian cooking techniques.
The theatre-style open kitchen means that diners can watch as the highly skilled chefs work their magic.
Valid from noon to 10pm, seven days per week, this mouth-watering offer is for two people to enjoy a two course meal from the a la carte menu.
The Cafe India kitchen team like to fuse flavours so that the starters on offer might include haggis pakora or Bombay mussels steamed and then tossed with garlic, white wine and cream. Other appetisers, such as the mixed tandoori platter or the assorted puris are more traditional.
Old favourites such as bhoonas and biryanis sit alongside a great selection of chef’s specials like the lamb genius – lamb with a touch of Guinness – or the zaikedar – a mix of chicken, lamb and king prawn in a ginger and garlic cream sauce.
Seafood lovers are well catered for with dishes like the basil sea bass while veggie dishes include the chickpeas in a hot and spicy masala or the spiced spinach with Indian cheese.
Dare devils may wish to try the tikka chance – the hottest curry on the menu.
There will be a supplement of £3 on king prawn dishes, payable directly to the restaurant.
Remember to leave space for dessert.
