IndiMex located at the Stones Corner strip at Greenslopes whips up a Funky Indian with a Mexican Twist cuisine. Although to be honest, both of these cuisines aren't my favourite, nor are they the cuisines I would opt to visit in an instant or are the ones at the top of my list. I don't mind it, I just usually prefer the other cuisines more. When I first heard the fusion of Indian and Mexican together, I thought how is that possible? Spicy food isn't my thing either although my asian background, but thinking about the mixture of both cuisines did get me intrigued of what was offered. Imagine Chicken Tikka Caesar.. Chimichanga served with Biryani rice... Tandoori Chicken Burger.. Bombay Oyster Kilpatricks... and more.

I started off with a 'Sangria' ($12.5), a classic when you go to any Mexican restaurants. Their house sangria made with red wine, apple brandy, orange juice, a touch of sugar and fresh citrus served over ice. The addition of diced apples and oranges on top gives the drink that extra freshness look. The taste was not overpowered by the wine nor the brandy, was just right.
To begin our IndiMex adventure, we started with a 'Bacon, Cheese, Garlic, Chilli & Oregano Naan' ($5.95) to share since we were not that hungry, we didn't want to order too much. Better to order too little and have that little space left in our tummies, or have the chance to add a bit extra after. But ordering too much is never cool, unless you already know you are there to try bits of different types of their dishes.
Their Naan was such a delight to start our meals with. It wasn't too thick nor too thin, with more than enough fillings, you could taste each of the Bacon, Cheese, Garlic and hints of chilli in it. It was fluffy, cheesy and I think with the size of their portion, even this would be enough to eat for one if you're not that hungry for lunch, for a simple light lunch. The crust was crispy but it was also hard to cut through it, so hands were needed to tear off the naan. Very hot inside so be careful before you dig into it.
It didn't take us long to decide what to order. First up was the 'Lamb Cheese Quesadilla' ($14.95), a Grilled soft flour tortilla stuffed with your choice of meat (Chicken, Beef, Lamb, Vege, Smoked Salmon), topped with mozarella cheese and cheddar cheese.
Served with a dollop of sour cream and guacamole and a simple fresh tomato salsa salad gave the whole dish that coolness from the hot quesadillas. The Quesadilla was small compared to the other dishes it seems, but that didn't matter for us since we weren't that hungry anyway. It was just right overall. The tortilla was nicely grilled, crispy on the outside and moist inside. The lamb and cheese combined well as the fillings with the right spices on them. Dipping the Quesadillas on the cream cheese and guacamole made it more fun to eat, but in the end, it does get quite filling even if at the start, it looked as if it was small.
Second dish was the 'Indimex Burrito' ($14.95), a soft flour tortilla with your choice of filling (we chose Chicken), served with biryani rice and frijole negro (black lentil daal makhani). A rather interesting dish put together with the burrito, dollops of sour cream and guacamole on top served with the twist of the sides.
Very generous serving in size, we were thinking of how to finish everything, it was definitely hard. Usually in burritos, I would find shredded or pulled meat, but these were thick chunks of meat which was a surprise. It felt it was never-ending when we started digging into the burrito. The flavours of both indian and mexican worked well in the dish.
The biryani rice and the black lentil daal gave the dish an extra hint of the indian twist but also, more food to gobble down. The Black lentil daal was a bit dry although it had an adequate amount of sauce and was nicely spiced. However, when mixed together with the biryani rice, it makes a delicious combo together.
The tomato salsa gave the whole dish an extra freshness away to wipe off the heavily twist of both cuisines. More like when you try to get your smell off a specific something by coffee beans, I felt that the tomato salsa did this in order for us to be able to really taste the uniqueness of both the Mexican side and the Indian side of the whole dish.
'Flat White' ($3.5)
A great place to dine out when wanting big portions, a bit of both worlds, a relaxing but also can be quite crowded during night time. It was rather empty when we came in during lunchtime with only a few tables filled. A downside would be we wouldn't really go to Stones Corner just to dine here, unless suggested to us. Seatings both indoors and outdoors are available giving you the option, family friendly restaurant.
