Bundobust has started making meat! (In a way)

Bundobust is only available for a limited time and has teamed up with plant-based pioneers, Meatless Farm …

Bundobust, known all over the country for their excellent vegetarian and vegan street food dishes (as well as their always unique list of beers and ales), yes – they have now started making meat. In a way.

A collaboration that will get things started in January, ‘Bundo makes meat‘Gujarati street food icon sees work with plant-based meat producer, Meat-free farm, create an exclusive vegan menu using two groundbreaking meat substitutes to make a unique selection of dishes.

Inspired by its Gujarati roots, the Bundobust offering has always been 100% vegetarian, with about two-thirds of the menu completely plant-based. This partnership marks the restaurant’s first bet on meat substitutes, featuring Meatless Farm’s plant-based chicken and meat-free farce that allows the Bundo team to explore more traditionally meat-focused Indian dishes.

Beware Butter Chicken (£ 7.50), a vegan spin on the decadent, creamy classic – with only one of Meatless Farm’s new products (chicken) as the centerpiece. Expect all the rich, tomato-like goodness of traditional butter chicken with plant-based kick of chili and fenugreek.

This is an intriguing dish with a rich heritage dating back to 1950 and the founders of the Moti Mahal restaurant in Deli, and made famous by using tandoori chicken in a buttery and tomato sauce.

Another highlight is Keema Matar (£ 7.50), which transforms the iconic chop and pea combination into a plant-based delight. You get a spicy curry with a deep taste, cooked in a classic, dry-fried Karai style with cinnamon, bay leaf, onion and chili. Try it with a puri for extra delicacy.

Meatless farce can also be found in Shami Kebab (£ 5.75) – the lentil meatballs seasoned with ginger, green chili, kewra water and mint, served with pickled red onions and a red pepper chutney next to it.

Speaking of pages, when it comes to accompaniment, look no further than that Pilau rice with mushrooms (£ 3.50) – a simple dish with mushrooms, cumin and lemon with classic basmati rice.

Mayur Patel, co-founder of Bundobust, said: “These specials are something we have been working on for months. We experimented with a range of meat substitutes and Meatless Farm products are best suited for Indian food. Both Bundobust and Meatless Farm are Leeds -born companies that focus on meat-free offerings, so it made sense to work together on these new special offers in limited editions. “

Marko Husak, co-founder of Bundobust, said: “These dishes are different from our usual gujarati-influenced menu. It was so much fun working with our chefs using their regional expertise and heritage to create some more traditional curry house dishes.”

Mayur continues “We have a long lasting relationship with Ben Davy at Meatless Farm and our chefs leveraged his expertise in how to best cook with their products. This is a collaboration that enables our chefs to truly offer something new to our customers.”

Michael Hunter, CEO of the UK at Meatless Farm:
“Meatless Farm and Bundobust have great synergy as passionate and creative northern companies with a meat-free focus. It made perfect sense to work with them to create their vegan specialties for Indian street food, allowing us to offer even more delicious plant-based options to customers across Leeds, Manchester and Liverpool, this vegan and beyond. “

All dishes will be available individually, or as one Bundo Does Meat Combo for Two for just £ 31.

If that was not enough guilt-free goodness, Bundo also welcomes you to an exclusive non-alcoholic beer, thanks to a collaboration with low and no specialists, Mash Gang.

Brut Luxe, is a special vegan 0.5 percent brew made with Nelson Sauvin hops and white oak on stock base. Find it in print at all Bundobusts for a limited time only. Thirsty diners can even add two half pints to their combination and turn it into the limited edition guilt-free combination for two for just £ 35.

Another drink’s collaboration comes in the form of Cloudwater Soda’s Spiced Fruit Chaat – a low-cal adult soft drink made with mango, pineapple, passion fruit and mosaic hops – for the menu.

And for anyone who wants to banish winter blues with a cup of something warming, Bundo’s Vegan Chai offers a pleasant mix of oat milk, massala and sugar – plant-based, gluten-free and delicious.
