INDIAN FOOD is internationally craved after, and many make it their lifelong mission to go in search of that perfect curry. Good news travels fast where food is concerned and good news begins at Spice Village Indian Restaurant in Urb Gaudalmansa, Estepona.
The chef only uses the freshest ingredients and spices that are kind on the stomach for those who are normally wary of Indian cuisine. The secret of their success is all in the preparation, as the dishes are tailor made to suit the individual’s intolerance to certain herbs and spices, so whatever age you are, you can still enjoy good Indian cuisine without the worry of allergy or upset.
This new concept is catching on rapidly and is becoming increasingly popular with more mature diners. The philosophy of the owners is quite simple: No two people in the country will agree on the exact recipe of a favourite dish. Recipes are handed down from generation to generation, verbally in the kitchen and are closely guarded secrets in most cases. But all agree, a dish is well cooked when the spices blend into the gravy and the meat.
The spices should not have disparate flavours, or taste raw. No spice should over-power the other and be so intrusive as to completely hide the true taste of the vegetable or meat being cooked. It should help maintain and enhance the character of the dish, give it colour and fragrance and leave you wanting more! With this sentiment and practice within the kitchen, the proof is in the tasting, and this is what sets Spice Village apart from the rest. The menu includes Tandoori dishes, Masala, Korma, Bhuna, Rogan Josh, Jalfarezi, Chef’s special and many more.
There are lots of traditional side dishes, so it is a good idea to mix and match with the advice from the attentive staff. Fine wine and Champagnes are also on offer, and should you want to order takeaway you can enjoy good food at home.
SPICE VILLAGE is open Tuesday to Sunday 1.00pm to 4.00pm and 6.00pm to 11.00pm or call 951 278 286.
