How’s the Curry? : An English couple in Competa where I live asked me about the vegan or all plant-based restaurant in Archez, Meson Mudejar. As a vegan, I ate there in July. But this couple wanted to specifically know about the venue’s Friday Curry Nights at 15€ for a three course meal. I did not know as these are a new thing. Has anyone experienced Curry Night there? If so, please contact morphology654 @ protonmail. com (closes spaces) Thanks. Steve.
