It’s the great debate I face far too often. You know, when people ask you, ‘what should we have for dinner?’ Ask me personally, and two things automatically come to mind: A warm, hearty and spicy Indian curry or a big, filled-to-the-brim, cheesy with extra guac, Mexican burrito. I somehow always end up at a crossroad. And then that little girl form the Old-El-Paso Taco ad pops into my head. You know the one where they’re talking about soft or hard shell tacos & she yells out, “Y Por Que No Los Dos?” AKA, “Why Not Both?” (Don’t tell me you don’t know it?!).
So why not spice up your life with a little bit of Indi-Mex goodness at IndiMex: Funky Indian cuisine with a Mexican Twist. Talk about a fiery mix! Two of the world’s boldest culinary palates united, and last week, IndiMex celebrated its first birthday in a nacho ordinary.
The Mariachi band was in full swing, the margaritas were flowing and the colourful table settings transported us to the bright streets of Mexico, with a kick of Indian spice of course.
First up, IndiMex Spring Rolls, Dips and Chips, Calamari with sweet chilli sauce. Okay,YUM!
In between the Margaritas, we munched on Chicken Tikka, Cocktail Sandwiches (with extra chutney cheese & veggies) and super saucy Albondigas En Salsa (Mexican Meatballs).
Throw in Onion Pakodas (otherwise known as deep-fried deliciousness) with butter chicken, prawn and mushroom filling and bite-size IndiMex Pizza on naan bread, and I was officially full. Top it off with a classic cupcake, another Corona and I was one happy señorita!
The party didn’t stop there though! Throughout the month of May, IndiMex want you to help them celebrate with hot special offers (we’re all for month-long fiestas!)
So grab your amigos and salsa your way down for some irresistible birthday treats:
- Free slice of birthday cake with any dine-in main meal ordered over $18.95 (Lunch or dinner only)
- Two free slices of birthday cake with any takeaway or home delivery of over $50 (dinner only)
- Buy 1 cake, get 1 free. Dine on any day or evening in May, buy one cake, receive another one to equal or lesser value for free. (T&Cs do apply. Lunch or dinner, dine in only).
PLUS $1 BIRTHDAY DEALS!

I’m giving IndiMex’s menu a ‘high-cinco’ with all it’s zing and zest…It was definitely an India-scribable Mex-travaganza. Arriba!
