Mia – Sugar & Spice (523 Sauchiehall St, Charing X, Glasgow, G3 7PQ) is the third re-launch of the former Cafe Salma. Cafe Salma was the brainchild of Hassan, a Restaurant selling Desi Curry and Moroccan Cuisine. Hassan returned with his family to Casablanca in the summer of 2013, thus Glasgow lost one of its Very Best Curry Houses.
First there was New Cafe Salma, thankfully this did not last. Masala Zing had great promise, however, the founding Staff slowly disappeared. Fortunately Akhtar and and Chef Assif both from the days of Cafe Salma took over Masala Zing. It is no surprise that the Flavours which permeated Cafe Salma Curry continue. In the Autumn of 2015, the Masala Zing branding was replaced with Mia Sugar & Spice. The decision to highlight Coffee and Dessert being inspired by their Cafe in Gibson St. which is also part of the Family Business. Desi Curry and Moroccan Cuisine maintain the unique array of Dishes on offer.
