When Indian Street Food and Craft Beer specialists Bundobust opened on Bold Street in Liverpool back in 2019, Middle Eastern restaurant Maray hosted a one-off dinner to welcome them to the city. Now Maray is coming to Manchester, it’s time to repay the favour.
Maray is an award-winning restaurant group that began in Liverpool in 2014. Co-founders Thomas White, James Bates and Dom Jones were inspired by the food, drink and culture of the Parisian district of Le Marais. Their Middle Eastern inspired menu, drinks and dedication to exceptional hospitality has earned them a die-hard following.
Ahead of their much-anticipated arrival, Maray and Bundobust are joining forces once again to offer a selection of very special Middle Eastern-Indian fusion dishes.
From Monday 9th May - for two weeks only - Bundobust Brewery on Oxford Street (read more about that HERE) as well as their Manchester Piccadilly and Liverpool Bold Street restaurants will serve a series of exciting collaborative dishes – and they’re all vegetarian.
Bundobust’s signature okra fries will become ‘jazzy fries’ topped with tahini, tamarind, spring onion and chilli - perfect for dipping into Maray’s saucy trio of harissa, zhug, and tahini. Valafel pav is a combination of Bundobust’s deep fried potato ball in a bun incorporating Maray’s signature falafel.
Maray’s super famous disco cauli will play a starring role in Bundo’s Bhel Puri, the Mumbai classic snack of broken samosa pastry, to create disco bel puri dressed with caramelised cauli, flaked almonds and pomegranate. The specials menu also features halloumi tikka, dressed with sour cherry jam, dukkah and sumac.
All the dishes on this super special menu will be available to try on their own or as the ‘Bundobust x Maray Combo for 2’. £2 from every combo and £1 from every Valafel Pav sold will be donated to Eat Well MCR, the social enterprise providing chef made meals to people in need.
The menu will be available from Monday 9th May until Sunday 22nd May at both Manchester restaurants; Bundobust Oxford Road, Piccadilly and at Bundobust Liverpool.
