Wales’ top-rated Indian restaurant on TripAdvisor fuses tradition with a touch of Mexican inspiration

0


Wales’ most popular Indian may not be the most traditional, but the bold flavors of the Indian and Mexican blend are drawing its large fan base.

With 160 four- or five-star reviews on TripAdvisor, this gem of Cardiff’s Whitchurch Road is a must visit for foodies, especially this National Curry Week.

The “Indi-Mex” was created after founder and chef Vikram dreamed of combining his two favorite cuisines.

He had previously founded Vivo Latino four years ago, a South American restaurant and cocktail bar on Cowbridge Road, which quickly became a staple.

Vivo Amigo has been open since last October but has already made its mark in the restaurant world of Wales.

A glance at Vivo Amigo’s Instagram reveals the kind of multi-colored, fiery goodness you can expect.

Their menu features Indian-inspired burritos including their hot smoked beef madras burrito, a tandoori chicken equivalent, a paneer masala chimichanga burrito or a lamb albondigas among other interesting variations.

Their enchiladas follow the same theme of inserting Indian food into a traditional Mexican main course, with options of spicy tandoori chicken, Kerala beef fries, and Dhansak coconut squash.

If you are looking for a more traditional curry, their “curry club” main courses are much more than you might expect from an Indian curry.

Vivo Amigo serves the usual selection including madrasas, masalas, a Mexican version of an albondigas curry, and a South Indian coconut fish and shrimp curry.

They also serve a variety of starters, burgers, and a kids’ menu.

A review on TripAdvisor said: “The curries are definitely all the best we have had and we will definitely be going back again and again.”

And another added: “The beef curry was the best we have ever had.”

You can find Vivo Amigo at 138 Whitchurch Road.
