Stones Corner Village stunner offers the spice of life

Imagine the mysterious spices of India combined with the flavoursome sass of Mexico, add a shot of booze and a hot flash of technicolour, and you're coming pretty close to summing up Stones Corner Village's funky fusion restaurant IndiMex.

Showcasing two of the world's boldest culinary palates, IndiMex is a melding of traditional North Indian delicacies with a fresh take on Mexican dishes, creating a love child that's blessed with the best features of both parents.

Although there's a tempting beverage menu, featuring everything from Mexican beers (Corona, Dos Equis) and knockout shooters and slammers, through to traditional cocktails (think Pina Colada) and Vodka Shikanji (Indian lemonade with vodka, khus root extract, ginger juice, lime and mint mixed with assorted popping pearls), on the day we visited, it was Ocsober after all. So my companion and I started with vibrantly-coloured mango lassi which was just the right hit of sweet and sour.

We then moved onto IndiMex's Three Amigos, a trio of guacamole, salsa and daal makhani (black lentil) dips with corn chips. Other starters include a seafood soup, tapas platter and the intriguingly named Bombay Oysters Kilpatrick. Topped with crispy bacon, seasoned in Kilpatrick sauce and grilled to perfection with a hint of Bombay spices, these babies are definitely on my wish list for next time.

The lunch menu courtesy of chef and owner GJ Singh then morphs into a melange of mouth-watering multicultural options. If you're seeking something sandwich-style there are Bombay Club House steak sandwiches, Tandoori chicken bagels, open face smoked salmon sandwiches and bunny chow burgers.

For those with sensibilities that are more - shall we say - sombrero, there are nachos, burritos, tacos, quesadillas, chimichangas and more. Curries, biryanis and Indian breads are also on the menu - and then there are the self-styled 'yummy mains' including grilled Tandoori chicken, Madras garlic chilli prawns and grilled lamb cutlets.

But with a nod to the Wynnum Seafood Festival taking place across the bay, my companion opted for the grilled barramundi with garlic prawns, while I went for the Moreton Bay bugs in a creamy Creole sauce. Both mains were served with herbed and spiced fries, and a freshly-dressed salad. The plates were the size of flying saucers. Could we finish them? Not a chance.

Naturally, that didn't stop us moving onto dessert, with traditional Indian options such as gulab jamun (syrupy dumplings) and kulfi (ice cream) alongside Mexican arroz con leche (rice pudding). Some Western dessert favourites also made the menu, such as the chocolate brownie oozing with sauce, and served with vanilla ice cream. Coffee to conclude the meal? IndiMex offers a specially created blend featuring Indian and Mexican beans.

IndiMex is located on busy Logan Road and, with indoor as well as outdoor seating, diners have a fabulous vantage point from which to view the passing parade. The wooden bench style seating is loaded with cushions in bright kaleidoscope colours. The interior decor, too, offers a feast for the eyes as well as the stomach. Step in and have your senses stimulated to the IndiMex degree.
