It sounds second to naan.
Curry lovers will be fully aware that absolutely nothing beats a proper good, spicy curry. Literally nothing. It’s like a big warm hug in a dish, full of flavour, love and joy. It’s a dish you can enjoy no matter the occasion, and as someone who was pretty much raised to eat Jalfrezi from the age of four for the love of good grub, you’d be right to guess that the prospect of an al fresco curry club would have me pretty damn excited.
Joining the Manchester Food and Drink Festival line-up, a brand new Curry Club is coming to town this September, with a whole host of some of Manchester’s best Indian restaurants in tow.
Marking just one of the festival’s ‘Hub Takeovers’ in Cathedral Gardens, the al fresco event will take place under the Festival Hub’s weather-proof cover, focusing on mouth-watering vegan and vegetarian dishes in the form of an Indian banquet.
Hosted by Bundobust, Dishoom, Aunty Ji’s, Sanskruti, and Lily’s – the restaurants will come together for a collaborative celebration of the traditional curry, serving up banquets of their signature dishes from each restaurant. We’re talking street food-style dishes such as Chaats, Gujariti specialities, sweets and more, with a soundtrack of uplifting Bollywood, Bhangra and British music by The Desi Jockeys to accompany.
Coming to MFDF for one night only, the Curry Club will kick off at 7pm on September 21 – with a welcome drink and three courses of food included in each ticket. Tickets cost £40 and can be purchased now here.
Manchester Food and Drink Festival will take place between 16th – 27th September, with a number of food and drink events yet to be announced. The hub – which will be packed full of food vendors – is free to enter, and guests can book advance tables here now.
