Life’s been quite hectic so trying to catch up with some delayed posts due to moving etc.. One I wanted to share with you was our invite to Atitihi by Anne Travel Foodie so here is our experience at this place.
Diogo and I were invited to try this Indian Restaurant in Rotterdam. Partly hidden between the Erasmusbrug and the more busy streets as Witte de With straat you can find this place.
As far as I can remember I’ve never had real Indian food so I was quite excited to try this out. We were nicely welcomed by our host and seated at the table.
One thing that sparked my interest was the big choice of vegetarian or vegan dishes, which I knew is a big part of Indian culture. Also many of the spices like turmeric, ginger, garlic are some I love to use myself in my cooking so was nice to try this out.
We started with some Tandoori Paneer Tikka which are Indian cheese (paneer) cured in spices and yoghurt overnight before being baked in the Tandoor oven.
For main we went for the Lamb Rogan Josh and the Kerala Prawn Curry. Served with delicious fresh baked pappadums. All delicious options and for me surprisingly not spicy at all. Probably my lack of food knowledge thinking that most parts of India eat spicy food. That’s one of the things I love about trying new cuisines is all your prejudices or things you knew might change and you discover and learn new things.
Another part that was interesting and I never heard of is you can also go here for a food consultant. Using Ayurveda you can determine your body type and eat dishes connected to it to heal your body. Loved this approach and I totally agree that food also feeds your soul and does so much more for your mental state and body. If you’re interested to read more about this I found this article from Times of India really helpful.
You can visit them in Rotterdam at Vasteland 5a. Or in Delft at Rijksweg A13 2020.
Have you’ve ever been here I would love to hear your experiences?
