    london: gunpowder

    somewhere between aldgate east station and brick lane, behind a work-in-progress building site discreetly lies a diamond in the dust (or gunpowder). described as a ‘home-style’ kitchen, this diminutive indian eatery serves a small but considered family menu where every dish packs a punch. here you’ll find a unique offering absorbing cuisine from across the sub-continent with a few contemporary twists. the adventure commences with a ‘rasam ke bomb’ - a fiery warm shot glass of masala soup served with a puffed puri pancake. Next spicy venison is concealed with a generously-sized vermicelli coated ‘doughnut’. After you might experience goats cheese in an indian restaurant for the first time in a palette-cleansing salad with a kick - you may also experience your duck ‘pulled’ for the first time. indian cuisine has always bountifully rewarded vegetarians and even meat eaters will be fighting over the exceptional grilled mustard broccoli and moreish saag spinach with tandoori paneer. about the size of a generous home-style dining room, the venue doesn’t unfortunately take reservations but will gladly take your number and text you as you wait. you’ll feel welcome as ‘the family’ recall tales of the dishes and the context within indian cuisine. in the spirit of the well known and extremely sugary indian cola, it’s a massive two ‘thums up’ from us.
