Aji in Teneriffe is a cafe and nightspot serving everything from brunch and dinner to coffee and cocktails. The space, located on Vernon Terrace between Zero Fox and Streetcorner Jimmy, specialises in fare influenced by Indian cuisine. The daytime menu features an assortment of familiar brunch staples, including crispy tortilla omelettes, corn fritters served with grilled haloumi, poached eggs and salsa-and-beetroot relish, brekkie boards and banana pancakes (available alongside fresh juices and coffee from Genovese). At night guests can devour a well-rounded offering that suits the share-style gourmandising that goes hand-in-hand with a drink or two. Lightly-spiced mixed-vegetable pakoras, aromatic beef koftas infused with torn curry leaves, crispy barramundi paratha pockets with chilli-lime mayo and succulent pan-seared lamb cutlets with butter bean ragout lead into a trio of curries (chicken, pumpkin and mixed vegetable), which are also available as part of a mixed curry set served with raita, tomato-and-coriander chutney, rice and paratha. Aji’s drinks list includes a clutch of craft beers (four taps currently feature ales from Hudson Brewing and All Inn Brewing Co.), a selection of Mediterranean wines and juice-infused cocktails.
