It’s Fiesta Friday Curry Night at Meson Mudejar (Calle Alamos 6, Archez):
It’s Curry Night again this Friday (and every Friday) at the area’s first plant-based (vegan) restaurant, Meson Mudejar, a couple of kilometres below Canillas de Albaida in the quaint and authentic small white village of Archez. David and Kinga prepare international, handmade international varieties of delicious plant-based dishes. Meson Mudejar also features theme nights like Friday’s Curry Nights when local musicians offer entertainment and there’s a special curry menu at 15€ for a three-course meal, opening at 19:00. The menu includes: starter is onion fritter (Pakora). Main course: three curries to chose from—Mushroom and Peas in Spicy Coconut Sauce, Curried Mung Beans or Chickpea Curry (takes a day and a half to prepare). Dessert: South Indian Chickpea Flour Fudge. All sauces are hand designed, all plant-based, all very tasty and healthy. And the ambience is magic and rustic and real. Imagine yourself entering a gypsy cave, a rustic and authentic Moroccan mountain village home, half restaurant, half B & B. White it seats 37, reservations are recommended. Thanks to DigameXtra readers and thanks to DigameXtra our Curry Nights’ popularity soars. Contact David or Kinga at 682 489 949 or Whatsapp
