We noticed a new Indian restaurant here, last week, Indian Sabor (just around the corner from us in Calella). It has opened in time for the summer season and they seem to have spared no expense on the decor. We thought it would be polite to go and visit…
At first glance, it looks like there are about 6 tables, with a modern open kitchen and bar at the back.
I was quite taken by the brass cooking pots, though I’m sure they are more decorative than practical these days.
However, when you turn right at the bar, there’s a vast covered courtyard, with vaulted, sliding roof, which will be fantastic during the the summer. We did appreciate the open air and moon gazing this early in the season.
We had some papad dums to start
Oli and I, were impressed by with the tandoor chicken wings – I’ve never had this before, but imagine that the inspiration comes from American buffalo chicken wings with hot sauce. I’ve enjoyed a lot of buffalo chicken wings in the USA and now I’m completely converted to tandoor wings – they are fantastic!
and a shahi gost – lamb cooked in a spicy coconut cream sauce.
Everything came with a light and fluffy basmati rice.
Nevertheless, we really enjoyed the food here and were well looked after by the staff. I couldn’t help noticing an old and quite French looking decoration at the back of the courtyard, no doubt from a previous incarnation of the local. I’m pleased to see, what must be a French man in a traditional striped jersey and beret, astride a brandy or wine bottle, kept for posterity. He has a certain amount of charm and I’m glad he wasn’t thrown out with the bath water.
Our dinner for 3 came to just under €87, including 3 bottles of wine. So far, I can see no trace of the restaurant on the web, but no doubt there will be good reviews on Trip Advisor in due course.
