This review is taken from the current (2013) edition.
Cosy little Indaba is tucked around the corner from the Cameo Cinema in Tollcross, providing tapas with a difference and truly something for everyone. People with gluten and wheat intolerances will be particularly delighted with a menu that, somewhat unusually, caters for them. The eclectic group of people who set up Indaba (the Zulu word for meeting) have brought their own specialities to create a wonderful fusion of Spanish, South African, Venezuelan and Scottish cuisine. Meats include a spattering of chorizo dishes alongside haggis a la murciana (with spinach and pine nuts); del mar dishes include a lovely gambas pil-pil with Indaba’s own chilli tomato sauce, and for vegetarians pisto murciano is an aubergine, tomato and pepper stew. The Venezuelan influence shines in a selection of delightful ground corn arepas, including a chorizo and fried egg version, which looks like a fried egg muffin but is much lighter on the tongue. Good-quality homemade desserts include sweet fruit sorbets and the famous crying cake, torta llorna, a rich pudding that cries tears of hot chocolate.
