I was most excited to head to the new pop-up Spanish restaurant on Beaufort St, Enrique’s School for Bullfighting, however upon rocking up on a Tuesday night I realised it wasn’t open! So I vowed to return asap and we popped up the road to long-established Indian restaurant, Two Fat Indians.
As far as Indian goes it’s pretty authentic, and I’ve been a few times now. Starving but armed with our complimentary papadums and two unidentified-yet-lovely dipping sauces, we placed our order and not long after it arrived.
I cannot go past Butter Chicken (does anyone NOT order this?) – fenugreek -flavoured, tandoori cooked shredded chicken in a creamy tomato gravy. I think $24.50 is a bit pricey but there were no signs of ‘freaky chicken bits’ as I like to call them, so the good quality chicken combined with a mouth-watering creamy sauce made it somewhat justified.
The lamb vindaloo, also $24.50 – lamb flavoured with vindaloo masala and vinegar also used good cuts of meat and delivered the spice a Vindaloo promises.
Dal Tadka – $17 – yellow lentil with Indian masala was far more than just lentil with a generous smattering of fresh coriander and chilli to blow your socks off.
Combined with some saffron-flavoured Basmati rice we were well satisfied with plenty leftover for my breakfast (yes breakfast) and lunch today.
Their other restaurants include Two Fat Indians Cottesloe and Bollywood in Innaloo.
