It’s a new departure (of sorts) for the popular veggie specialists but it won’t upset vegans!

Bundobust Does Meat - what’s on the menu?

Gujarati street food restaurant Bundobust is causing a stir with its latest menu - Bundobust Does Meat.

But dedicated fans of the vegetarian eatery at Piccadilly need not worry - the menu involves a partnership with plant-based meat producer, Meatless Farm and is the restaurant’s first venture into meat substitutes.

They say it will let them offer more traditionally meat-focused Indian dishes but produced for the veggie and vegan market.

What’s on the menu then?

Butter Chicken - a spicy vegan spin on the traditional meat-based classic.

There’s also Keema Matar, where the mince has been swapped for a non-meat version and cooked with cinnamon, bay leaf, onion, and chilli.

And there is more ‘meatless mince’ in the Shami Kebabs – lentil patties spiced with ginger, green chilli, kewra water and mint, served with pickled red onion and a red pepper chutney.

And Bundobust is also serving new alcohol-free vegan beer to help people trying Dry January enjoy a night out.

Mayur Patel, co-founder at Bundobust, said: “These specials are something we’ve been working on for months. We experimented with a selection of meat substitutes, and Meatless Farm products lent themselves best to Indian food. Both Bundobust and Meatless Farm are Leeds born businesses focusing on meat-free offerings, so it made sense to work together on these new limited edition specials.”

Michael Hunter, UK managing director at Meatless Farm, added:“Meatless Farm and Bundobust have great synergy as passionate and creative Northern businesses with a meat-free focus. It made perfect sense to collaborate with them to create their Indian street food vegan specials, allowing us to offer even more delicious plant-based options for customers across Leeds, Manchester and Liverpool, this Veganuary and beyond.”
