Indian street food kitchen and beer hall Bundobust is revving-up to celebrate National Curry Week, with a menu paying homage to traditional Anglo-Indian Curry House classics.
The limited-edition Specials will be available in Leeds, Manchester, and Liverpool, for three weeks from Monday 7th October.
We’re a nation of curry lovers, and for the past five years, Bundobust have been at the forefront of expanding Britain’s tastebuds for traditional Indian food, with their award-winning, nationally-renowned vegetarian street food.
Having brought regional Indian dishes like dhals, dosas, fried okra and Vada Pav to the British mainstream via venues in Leeds, Manchester, and recently Liverpool, the new Specials menu will showcase the Curry Mile flavours of exotic destinations like Bradford, Birmingham, and Leicester.
To mark the beginning of National Curry Week, Bundobust’s three venues are launching this tongue-in-cheek menu to give traditional British Curry House-style, Anglo-Indian staples their own signature twist.
Mayur Patel, Co-Founder of Bundobust:
“For the past five years I’ve been proud to showcase my culinary heritage by bringing traditional, regional Indian cooking to a wider audience, and we’ve been amazed at the response we’ve had from people, when the mainstream experience of Indian food typically extends to the dishes you’d find on the Wetherspoons Curry Club menu.
Since we opened there’s been a bit of an ongoing joke about Bundo not being the place to go for a korma or a vindaloo, so for National Curry Week we decided to have a bit of fun and do…a korma and a vindaloo.
It’s been fun working within the expectations of such familiar dishes, and the kitchen teams have had a great time giving us their ideas. I think we’ve struck the perfect balance between delivering that familiarity of the dishes whilst putting our own spin on them, and also giving a nod to the original recipes that the Anglicised versions have been adapted from. Just don’t even think about ordering chips.”
The Curry House Specials menu consists of:
Poppadoms – £3 with pickle tray (v, gf)
Vegetable Pilau – £3 (v, gf)
Korma – £6 Paneer dumplings with sultanas in a creamy coconut and almond sauce spiced with cardamom, ginger, and cinnamon. (gf)
Vindaloo – £6 Our spiciest dish EVER. Cauliflower and mixed peppers in a Kashmiri chilli and vinegar sauce. (v, gf)
Combo – £20 Poppadoms, Bhajis, Korma, Vindaloo & Pilau. (gf)
The Specials will remain on the menu in each Bundobust venue for a limited period, so get down during National Curry Week and give each a sample! Go for the Combo and get a portion of bhajis thrown in too. Come eat us out of (curry) House and Home.
