Whipping up cuisine praised by the Sun Sentinel in 2010, the chefs at Madras Café present a bold menu that blends southern and northern Indian flavors. Duos can practice their division skills with a samosa trio, in which a meat samosa, vegetable samosa, and pakora peacefully coexist with flavorful chutneys ($7.95). Tandoori specialties include the lamb boti kebab, a tenderloin of lamb grilled over an open flame by an expert interrogator until it reveals its secret recipe of spices and herbs ($17). Foursomes can please both carnivorous and herbivorous palates with an order of spiced chicken korma, in which boneless chicken morsels bask in cashew-and-almond sauce ($17) or aloo gobi, a vegetarian dish of cauliflower, potatoes, ginger, and tomatoes ($14). Meals can be accented with a side of garlic naan stuffed with fresh chopped garlic and cilantro and studiously flattened by a curry-powered iron ($3.95). Wee ones can keep their meals domestic with a kids' meal of chicken nuggets, fries, and a soft drink ($6).
A bowl filled with floating candles and rose petals greets patrons as they enter. Empty-bellied groups will cross the tiled floor to a white-clothed table where they may marvel at the eatery's intricate wooden wall hangings and refreshing lack of sentient silverware.
Madras Exotic Indian Cuisine
Dried blossoms lean against crystal vases on white tablecloths; ornate chandeliers bathe the high-ceilinged hall in an amber glow; and scents of fenugreek, cumin, and other spices from northern and southern Indian recipes waft from Madras Exotic Indian Cuisine kitchen. The cooking staff bakes tandoori chicken, lamb, and vegetables in an authentic clay tandoor oven, and trains vegetables to assume formations atop flavored basmati-rice platters in the biryani tradition. Chefs also prepare meals to halal standards, and craft additional culinary fusions with Desi Chinese dishes. The culinary crew can pair mains with an array of sides such as six varieties of fresh-baked naan and other breads, and serve desserts in brass, footed vessels for a more delicious finale than samosa-shaped fireworks. Chefs lay out a wider range of their creations at Sunday buffets, when heated chrome containers perched atop linen-draped tables hold steaming meats, seafood, and vegetarian stews.
