Oh the weather outside is frightful but this curry looks so delightful…
An Indian curry is probably not what you are thinking of during the festive season but I found this gem of a place in Carnaby Street that I can’t not share with you. Cinnamon Soho.
Snuggled in amongst a ton of other eateries just behind Kingly Court; which we all know I love is Cinnamon Soho.
‘Cinnamon Soho offers fresh, seasonal Indian cookery, with a quirky British twist’
I kicked everything off with a Basil Lemonade, a super refreshing mocktail the perfect match for a spicy meal.
It took a long time to decide what to have because everything sounds amazing. Eventually the Mr decided on Kerala style boatman haddock curry with tomato and tamarind, a super spicy dish served with rice and we shared a side of Peshwari naan which is my weakness when it comes to Indian food.
Now i’m not the greatest when it comes to spice so I played it safe by ordering their Chicken korma: Tandoori chicken breast, cashew korma, kadhai veggies. Definitely spicer than one you pick up from the shop but still beautifully creamy and perfect if your a bit nervous about spice.
Pretty much full to the brim we decided to squeeze in some dessert, in the form of Malabar plum cake with cinnamon ice cream. A beautiful mix of flavours and textures the perfect way to end a lovely meal.
We decided to take a little stroll down Oxford Street to see the Christmas Lights a great end to a lovely lunch date.
Cinnamon Soho is part of a trio of restaurants called the Cinnamon Collection so if Carnaby isn’t near you check out The Cinnamon Club in Westminster or Cinnamon Kitchen near Liverpool Street.
