Manchester or bust for Bundobust

launch-10-12-16-initial_selects-web-bb-17It’s the vaunted Northern Powerhouse in action: Bundobust, an Indian veggie street food and craft beer concept that launched in Leeds two years ago, has crossed the Pennines to Manchester.

The new branch is significantly bigger than the Leeds original, and opens on December 14 near another new arrival, Shoryu Ramen, in the fast-growing Piccadilly Gardens food hub in the Northern Quarter.

“Bundobust” means “binding and tying” in Hindi, and refers to the partnership between Mayur Patel of Prashad, a well-known vegetarian Gujarati in Drighlington near Leeds, and Marko Husak, who founded Bradford’s Sparrow Bier Café in 2011.

Menu favourites from the Leeds branch include okra fries, Bundo chaat and vada pav, a spicy mashed potato burger, all served in biodegradable containers with biodegradable cutlery.

The new branch will keep 14 kegs of beer on tap, always including two from Manchester breweries alongside such craft beer stars as Brewdog from Aberdeen and Mikkeller from Copenhagen.
