Darjeeling Express is bringing in meat-free Mondays

As you may remember, we were ever so slightly embarrassed about missing our on Asma Khan's Darjeeling Express last year, despite it getting rave after rave (but look out for a Test Drive soon). 

And now there's another reason to visit as they're embracing their vegetarian side and introducing a special meat-free menu every Monday (with plenty of vegan dishes on the new menu too). 

Here's what's on:

  • Aloo Parantha (vegan) - Parantha stuffed with spiced potatoes (2 pieces) £7
  • Dal Puri (vegan) - Bengali lentil stuffed puris (4 pieces) - £6
  • Kachumbar Salad (vegan) - Cucumber, tomatoes, chillies, red onions and pomegranate with lemon juice - £4
  • Beetroot Raita (vegetarian) - Spiced yogurt with raw grated British beetroot - £4
  • Bengali Aloo Dum (vegan) - Spicy potatoes - £6
  • Papad (vegan) - Served with Bengali tomato chutney - £4
  • Bengali Niramish (vegan) - Pumpkin, aubergine, beans, and carrot cooked with panchporan - £11
  • Mattar Paneer (vegetarian) - Indian cheese, cooked peas in a thick tomato gravy - £11
  • Kala Channa (vegan) - Black chickpeas cooked with ginger and dried red chilies - £11
  • Khichidi Classic (vegan) - Comfort rice and dal mix, similar to rice porridge in texture - £7

Yes, that DOES sound very good indeed - particularly the khichidi which Asma tells is was the original inspiration for kedgeree. So if you fancy a meat-free Monday - you know where to go.

Where: Kingly Court, 6 Kingly St, Carnaby, London W1B 5PW

When: From February 5, 2018 and every Monday after that
