You can ask Chef Asha Gomez for a side of naan with your Pork Vindaloo, but she won’t serve it to you. That’s because Gomez and her Cardamom Hill restaurant are all about the cuisine of her native land, Kerala-a lush, a coastal state in South India. But don’t fret, you won’t miss the Indian bread for long, because Gomez’s dishes are rich in spices, coconut, and plenty of the beef, goat, and other proteins often missing from typical Americanized-Indian cuisines. (Thanks to the diets of the Spanish Catholic missionaries who settled the coastal areas, rather than the Muslim and Hindu populations more prevalent in larger Indian cities). So sit back—surrounded by dark detailing, lush fabrics, and exotic décor—and enjoy all Gomez has to teach about her native cuisine.
