I am a huge fan of Indian cuisine and there’s a new bad boy that just opened in Toorak that serves modern Indian food. Located where all the restaurants were, it is a very humble venue. We were invited to try the 7 course set menu which costs $75 a head. Now that’s a feast that got me super excited.
The Glen, renown for difficult parking and heaps of restaurants that’s pumping with customers on every night regardless if it’s a weekday or weekend. Work organised a dinner and Indian cuisine was on the agenda, a booking at Elephant Corridor was made on a Tuesday night. If you are driving, you might get lucky and be able to snag a spot in front of the restaurant but if not, I’d suggest you make your way to the car park complex because you’ll be guaranteed a spot AND it’s free! The restaurant itself was quite darkly lit (guess it’s more date-y??) but the staff were super duper friendly and welcoming.
Located at the end of the business end of Fitzroy sits a quiet eatery with a fantastical name – Curry Smuggler. Walking in, you can smell the indian spices and you’re greeted so warmly by the staff. The decor was nothing flash and what you’d find typically in most eateries. But we weren’t here for the decor were we? We were here for all those delish dishes containing all those yummy spices!
The stooges caught up again and this time we wanted to do vegetarian and since we all loved Indian food, someone recommended Saravanaa Bhavan which is a vegetarian chain from India with many chains opened around the world. I got there first and sat down and waited for the other two stooges to turn up.
The work guys wanted a catch up and since Mr Tequila has never tried Indian food before so of course we flipped through the Entertainment Book and found Curry Vault and made a booking via Dimmi. When we got inside we were shown to our seats. The interior wasn’t as lively or bright as I had remembered and needed a bit more vibrancy to it. Anywho, we got the menu and started ordering to our hearts content.
It was dinner time with the stooges and we decided to have indian because that’s what we were craving! I didn’t realise that Aangan opened a second eatery in Derrimut and so Stooge 1 booked it for a Sunday night.
