As the curators of one of London’s most unusual Indian dining experiences, Flora Indica is toasting the new British summer with the launch of its very own amber ale. The spiffy beverage is made exclusively by the Portobello Brewing Company,to complement the bold, intricate flavours of the modern Anglo-Indian menu.
This elegant, yet robust ale has been brewed with gentle aromas,evoking nuts,berries,and meadow flowers. A mash of medium-roasted grain barley with just a floral hint of hops produces along, coffee-like finish that makes this the ideal session drink, reviving and enjoyable by itself or to pair with some of the creative bar snacks menu.
The unique, whimsical interiors of Flora Indica, created by British artist and designer, Henry Chebaane, juxtapose Victorian design vernacular, fine Scottish textiles, botanical elements,and hints of Steampunk culture.This staple of Kensington’s cosmopolitan dining scene has grown as a favourite setting for family reunions, business gatherings, social events,and even the occasional TV series.
The menu keeps teasing its new and regular fans with dishes that currently include Monkfish & King Prawn in Bengali Malai Curry Sauce,Jerusalem Artichoke Papdi Chaat with Tamarind & Yoghurt,Slow-Cooked Venison Biriyani with first-grade Basmati Rice and Warm Candy Beetroot Halwa with Amarkhand & Seasonal Berries.
Flora Indica Amber Ale is available exclusively in the restaurant, shortly to be released in to local retailers across the summer months
