Take a burger that’s been described as one of the best burgers in the world and one of the 20 burgers you need to eat before you die. Then get a chef tipped by many in the industry as one to watch to put a unique twist on it. What do you get?
Something really rather special.
Bundobust Manchester, the award-winning, Michelin-recommended Indian street food restaurant, is collaborating with renowned chef Luke Cockerill during the Manchester Food and Drink Festival 2017.
The former head chef at The Rabbit In The Moon is putting a twist on the Vada Pav, the classic vegetarian burger, especially for the festival.
Expect mashed potato with kimchi, coated in Korean hot sauce and topped with soy infused pickles, spring onion and ginger relish.
The exclusive special will be served during the festival with a limited number of 30 available each day (15 available to order from 12pm and another 15 on offer from 6pm).
There will be a Japanese beer pairing option, including Hitachino Nest Saison Du Japon by Kiuchi Brewery and festival goers can also enjoy Luke Cockerill’s salt and pepper okra fries.
Both the Vada Pav and the okra fries will be available for £11, with all profits being donated to Action Against Hunger.
Throughout the festival, Bundobust will also have a special dessert on offer from Manchester’s sourdough and Viennoiserie bakery, Pollen Bakery.
The Gajar Halwa Danish consists of a flaky, crisp, croissant pastry filled with custard and topped with warm Gajar Halwa and crushed pistachios, when served.
