$20 for Two Vouchers for Indian-Goan Cuisine ($40 Value)
Using two $20 vouchers that must be used on separate visits, diners can explore a regional cuisine that blends Indian and Portuguese traditions. The menu’s regional specialties from the state of Goa, including Galinha Cafrael Florentine a green Goan chicken ($14.95) and lamb xacuti (curry) ($15.95). The kitchen’s repertoire also includes familiar Indian dishes such as tandoori chicken ($13.95) and paneer tikka masala ($13.95).
The Portuguese term susegado refers to the laid-back demeanor that characterizes the people of Goa, an Indian state that was ruled by Portugal for more than four centuries. This fortunate incident of cultural fusion resulted in a unique culinary tradition reflected on the menu at Indo Fusion, a restaurant dedicated to authentic Goan cuisine. According to glowing reviews in Hour Food Detroit and Metro Times, the menu is as authentic as it gets, likely because Indo Fusion’s executive chef grew up in Goa. There, he learned how to delicate balance Indian and Portuguese flavors, a process that occurred naturally in his family kitchen, as opposed to years spent stuffing rice pudding and samosas into his mouth simultaneously.
Today, the chef masterfully incorporates the mottled spices, coconut, and palm vinegar that characteristic of Goan cooking into his dishes. Some of them include Sorpotel—a kind of pork curry—pork is parboiled, diced, sautéed and cooked in Goan spices and vinegar. The menu also includes some well-known Indian dishes, such as chicken tikka, as well as and stone-baked pizzas.
