Curry Night at Meson Mudejar (Calle Alamos 6, Archez):
It’s Curry Night again this Friday (and every Friday) at the area’s only plant-only (vegan) restaurant located in the quaint and authentic small white village of Archez, Meson Mudejar, only a couple of winding kilometres below Canillas de Albaida. Curry Night, starting at 19:00, offers a full three course meal for 15€. Plus local musicians adding additional spice to the night. It takes owners David and Kinga a day and a half to make the chickpea spicy curry alone. Here’s the plan: starter is onion fritter (Pakora). Main course, three curries to choose from—mushroom and peas in spicy coconut sauce, royal tofu and cashews or chickpea curry. Dessert: fudgy coconut balls. All sauces are hand designed, all plant-based, all very healthy. The ambience is magic. Imagine yourself entering a gypsy cave, a rustic and authentic Moroccan mountain village home, half restaurant, half bed and breakfast. While it seats 37, reservations are recommended as Curry Night’s popularity soars. Contact David or Kinga at 682 489 949 call or Whatsapp FB-Link
