It was a Monday. And I don’t care what you tell me about a ‘fresh start to the week’- I just don’t like them. Except Monday’s that include lunches at Gunpowder Spitalfields.
I’d been before to the cosy restaurant tucked behind Spitalfields, but in the evening. A classic ‘no reservations’, we put our names down before going for a drink pre-meal. The restaurant atmospheres transfers well into the day time, and I was excited to tuck in. While Gunpowder claims to be home-style Indian cooking, I feel like they’re doing themselves a disservice- yes Ma’s lamb chops will have your ordering extra portions (everyyyy time….) but there’s also inventive twists- with savory doughnuts and specials including skewered chicken hearts. Even the veg gets upgraded- with Porzhi Okra Fries, Sigree Grilled Mustard Broccoli (a must- trust me) and the Gunpowder Aloo Chaat of dreams….
If that’s homemade in India, book me a ticket now….
