There are many curry houses on the Costa del Sol and inland areas
Curry on the Costa del Sol? It’s not really the first thing you think of when choosing a holiday, is it? But, you would be surprised how many of us do crave a good curry.
Nerja has, in our view, one of the very best curry houses in the whole of Andalucia. The Goa town in Nerja is excellent. I have written about the Goa town in Nerja on this blog before. Check it out via the link.
If, however, you are one of those people who like to explore, we have a treat for you.
Curry on the Costa del Sol or Inland – Chez Spice
The people running it, to my surprise, were not actually Indian. Not only that, but they also are not even Asian! A Spaniard who comes from Madrid and his wife, who does the cooking, is from the Dominican Republic.
You would not know that from the menu and the fantastic Indian / Asian food.
I’m not the world best authority on Indian / Asian cuisine, but, the menu was so varied, there were lots of items that I had never even heard of, never mind tasted. The usual favourites were there as well.
I had a Phall. Phall is a British Asian curry which originated in the British Bangladeshi-owned curry-houses of Birmingham and has also spread to the United States. It’s the hottest curry and not for the faint-hearted. I grow Jamaica Scorpion chillies, so, its to be expected I would go for this.
The starter was a classic pickle tray, consisting of Lime Pickle, Mango Chutney and Raita. This was served with Papadums and Khandari Naan Bread. The rest of the party had Basmati Rice, Gosh Maratha, Lamb Madras Paarsee, Mumbai Chaat and Botti Tikka.
Served with Indian Cobra Beer, San Miguel and wine. The cold water helped as well. The whole lot came to less than 23€ per head.
The food was fantastic, the service was excellent. Chez Spice is well worth the journey, not to mention the great day out at Lake Viñuela and the amazing views. Check out the Chez Spice Facebook page.
