ADYA, an authentic Indian restaurant that revolves around fresh and sustainable ingredients, will open its second Orange County location Tuesday, September 27th in Irvine’s University Center. The menu combines modern creative and classic Indian styles of cooking, while balancing the bounty of Southern California with the bold flavors and spices of India. Menu favorites include Samosas, Chicken Tikka and Tandoori Shrimp, and also showcase Chef Shachi’s unique spin on the cuisine with dishes such as Watermelon Chaat with fennel, diced red onion, mint and lime vinaigrette, and a warm Naan, stuffed with goat cheese.
At the heart of the menu will be Kebabs from the tandoor, Kaathi Rolls (wraps filled with potatoes, paneer, shrimp, chicken or lamb), and fresh-made Curries. A lesser-seen Indian specialty that Chef Shachi will focus on is Pavs, which are Bombay-style Sloppy Joes, that will feature spiced vegetables, chicken or lamb on butter-toasted buns.
ADYA will offer a selection of desserts and the drink selection will be true to its Indian roots, with selections such as fresh lime soda, mango lassi, and classic Masala Chai.
