Spring will see the launch of a brand new dining concept in Soho from the award-winning Tamarind Collection. Look forward to enchanting Indian cuisine in a stunning setting.

The heartbeat of any Indian home is its kitchen; the place where family and friends come together to talk, eat and relax. Inspired by this idea, Tamarind Kitchen will bring a convivial Indian dining experience to the heart of buzzy Soho, complete with sumptuous dishes that reimagine the award-winning cuisine of Tamarind Mayfair and tailor them to the Soho diner.

Tamarind Kitchen menus will present a stunning array of fish, meat, game and vegetarian dishes — many of which arrive fresh from the kitchen’s authentic Tandoor oven. Tantalising tastebuds from the moment you sit down, starter dishes include Makai Kachumber, a vibrant corn and vegetable salad lifted by a chat masala dressing and Karara Kekda, soft shell crab with potato salad and homemade pickles. The flavour explosion continues with some irresistible kababs, such as the Game Platter, which serves tandoor-cooked quail, duck and guinea fowl on a bed of vermicelli.

Mains appeal to all palates and include Guchchhee Kofta, morel mushroom and pea dumplings in a spiced creamy sauce; Hydrabadi Gosht, slow-cooked lamb in a browned onion sauce flavoured with Kashmiri chilli and a traditional South Indian Alappuzha Fish Curry with Kingfish and spiced with tamarind, mustard and curry leaves, all accompanied by a selection of Tamarind’s signature rice, breads and dips.

The 100-cover restaurant will span two floors, featuring a private dining room for up to twenty guests and a subterranean cocktail bar for late night drinking. Its interiors, designed by Russell Sage Studios, blend soulful touches (in keeping with the Indian kitchen concept) with the sophisticated — as befits the sister restaurant of the palatial Tamarind of Mayfair. And attention to detail has not been bypassed with the tabletop choices: each handpicked item reflects the modern diner’s appetite for simple, yet stylish elegance. Sourcing from four artisan producers - including Studio Mattes, a celebrated Belgium-based stoneware supplier – the plates have been carefully selected to show off the colours and curves of the forward- thinking Indian dishes

Set to be the destination of the spring, Tamarind Kitchen looks forward to welcoming diners to a rich and resplendent setting of quiet elegance to sample delicious, contemporary Indian dishes from the expertly crafted menus.

In the early 1950s egg waffles first appeared in Hong Kong to avoid wasting broken eggs that could not be sold to customers; industrious stall-owners created an egg-shaped iron machine and blended the broken eggs with milk and flour to make this meaningful and tasty waffle. It has since become a popular street snack in Hong Kong and now London with the opening of Bubblewrap on Chinatown’s Wardour Street.

This March will see the opening of what started as an Imperial College Business School MSC Innovation project. Despite three rejected site offers, three sites falling through, nearly two years of trading on weekend markets across London and catering for three festivals Tony Fang is finally seeing Bubblewrap, the egg waffle company, in its first permanent home.

Example flavours: Classic Waffle with Peach, Pistachio and White Chocolate, Cocoa Waffle with Berries, Sea Salt and Dark Chocolate and Hong Kong favourite Matcha Waffle with Mochi and Red Bean.

Soft Launch Offer:
Bubblewrap will offer 2-4-1 on their Bubblewrap for the first fortnight of opening.
