100% Gluten Free, South Indian Cuisine is what we have on offer at this upper level Candleriggs restaurant.
Going out for a bite to eat last night with my friend, who recommended this place as she is Gluten Intolerant (Celiac).
It was quite busy which I thought was impressive for somewhere I hadn’t really heard of and even more customers arrive when we are sat down, wishing a big Happy New Year to the waiters which is a always a good sign. This is returning loyal customers and I can't wait to try the food to learn why.
South Indian isn’t something I had really tried before so was looking forward to it. We opt from a Pre -Theatre Menu which is £14.95 for 2 courses, so great value!
For starters we both have the same, Batata Bonda, soft battered dumpling with spiced potatoes. This is based on a recipe from a 12th century Manuscript. (We love a bit of history 🤓) These tasted great along with a selection of gluten free poppadoms and sauces.
On to the mains! I choose the Dosa, Indigenous to South India this traditional dish can be traced back 2,000 years 😍 they are crepes made from a batter of rice and lentil which are served with a variety of fillings. I choose the lamb 🤣 sorry guys not doing Veganuary 🤫 (Doing dry January though, will keep you's updated 😂). This is accompanied by curry leaves, peas and spices.
This crepe was longer than my arm 😂 I took a bite and it's a bit different, I can taste it’s gluten free but it’s a really tasty alternative. It's still sweet and the lamb was delish😋 I do like it slightly more on the tender side though. With vegan, vegetarian and gluten free options available, this restaurant appeals to a wide audience. Overall, I was very impressed and I shall be back to try other dishes! @dakhinglasgow
