The menu explores regional Indian specialties and contemporary interpretations of classic dishes with lamb in a garam masala sauce ($14), jumbo scallops in a fiery vindaloo sauce ($21), and paneer butter masala with cheese in a creamy tomato sauce ($12).
At a glance, Indigma’s name—a mash-up of “India” and “enigma”—seems cryptic, but the restaurant’s menu is anything but. Instead, it demystifies the subcontinent’s diverse and richly historic cuisine, grouping each entree by its region of origin and deconstructing its colors and flavors into seemingly innocent ingredients. The team of Indian chefs approaches these with a respect for their home’s iconic recipes, but also demonstrates a willingness to experiment.
Sichuan lamb serves as a touchstone for the cuisine’s Indo-Chinese influences, distinguishing itself from more traditional entrees such as Southern Indian dosas and Northern Indian murgh tandoori, which a reviewer from the Baltimore Sun lauded as “some the best tandoor chicken I've ever had.” The chefs also create contemporary interpretations of classic flavors, as in the open-face samosas with seasoned potatoes and peas in bowls of crispy pastries.
Located within a refurbished townhouse, according to Baltimore magazine, Indigma’s ambiance mirrors the chefs’ commitment to homestyle cuisine with a refined touch. Vibrant colors fill the rooms, which feature salmon, fuchsia, and saffron-yellow walls. At the same time, accents such as crisp white tablecloths and crystal chandeliers add a slight air of refinement to help make first dates feel special and to keep monocle-wearing gentlemen from feeling out of place.
