Leeds' Bundobust reveal plans to open second site in Manchester

5 October 2015 by Lucy Lovell

The renowned Indian Street Food & Craft Beer bar Bundobust have announced plans to open in Manchester city centre in Spring 2016. 

The Leeds based Bundobust started as a collaboration between award winning institutions Prashad (Gordan Ramsay’s Great British Restaurant finalists) and The Sparrow Bier cafe (The Guardian’s Top 10 UK Craft Beer Bars) in April 2013.

Bundobust Leeds offer street food par excellence, trimmed down versions of the classic Gujerati food prepared at their parent restaurant, Prashad in Drighlington. Perfect for grazing are dishes such as their signature Bundo chaat (£4.50), samosa pastry, chickpeas, potato, tamarind chutney, yoghurt & turmeric noodles, served cold; or for £3 a tub popcorn and mini popadoms tossed in green chilli and garlic oil (£3); okra fries (£3.50) which are seasoned  with black salt and mango powder after being coated in chick pea batter and deep-fried. 

Bring on the spring. 

But don't just take our word for it. Olia Hercules, former Ottolenghi chef and Guardian's 'rising star' of 2015, complimented Bundobust in a recent interview with Taste. 

Bundobust will be serving up their street food inspired menu in Manchester ahead of the opening at the Indy Man Beer Con, held in Victoria Baths this weekend (Oct 9-11).
