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, Mung Bean Dal or Chickpea Curry (takes a day and a half to prepare). Dessert: Fudgy Coconut Balls. 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  Facebook Event page
