Dinner@Sanskrit,Hall Green

Birmingham is one of the greatest places in the UK, and possibly the universe, to go if you want a great curry eating experience. Tonight Rock and I are with my brother Neko at Sanskrit in Hall Green.  We are hoping they can deliver drama and poetry on a plate!

Sanskrit describes itself as delivering contemporary Indian cuisine and, although the menu includes a few familiar nouns and adjectives, there is also a full alphabet of dishes that you certainly don’t find at every restaurant.


Rock and Neko decide to share Garlic Chilli Mogo – fried cassava chips with a hot garlic and chilli sauce.  I choose Fish Amritsari – bright red battered strips of white fish punctuated with ajwain seeds and spices. Very different and very good.


For the main event: Neko picks a more traditional Lamb Biryani; Rock is a little more  adventurous with Amritsari Choley – a chickpea dish composed with masala sauce and an understated hint of dry mango powder; and I’m really going for it with Hara Bhara Gosht…a dark dish with lamb, spinach and a real accent on flavour. We ask for Naan, Chapati and wash it all down with Cobra – this is literally the way to go.

Wade and Rock are a UK based couple who love good food and wildlife and love travelling to find it. Wade does most, but not all, of the writing and the photography. Rock shares the eating experience and tells Wade when planned posts fall short on sense or style or taste. In the opinion of Wade (and many of our friends) she is also a fabulous baker. WadeandRockandFood mainly consists of reviews of restaurants and pubs we have recently visited. WadeandRockandWildlife and WadeandRockandPlaces are mostly photoblogs.
