The Tamarind Tree (A little bit of history)


The Tamarind Tree from which the restaurant takes its name is a native of Africa and Asia.
Culinary Uses:
The fruit pulp is edible and popular. The hard green pulp of a young fruit is very sour and acidic and is often used as a component of savory dishes. The ripened fruit is less sour and somewhat sweeter. It is used in desserts and sweetened drinks, or as a snack.
Medicinal Uses:
The pulp, leaves, and bark also have medical applications. For example, in the Philippines, the leaves have been traditionally used in herbal tea for reducing malaria fever. Tamarind is used as an Ayurvidic Medicine for gastric and/or digestion problems,cardioprotective activity.

The fruit was well known to the ancient Egyptians and to the Greeks in the 4th Century B.C.
