We are serving a very special taster menu on the evening of November 15th to celebrate Beaujolais Nouveau Day at Purple Poppadom. The menu is available all evening on the 15th and we anticipate great interest in the new one night only menu, so please book early to avoid disappointment.
Priced at just £29.95 per person for a minimum of two persons, the taster menu naturally includes a glass of Beaujolais Nouveau.
Chef has introduced a number of new and interesting dishes for our guests to explore providing a one-night only opportunity to sample Anand George’s latest innovations.
We are especially intrigued by the addition of goat to the menu, an ingredient which Anand first discussed with our good friend Carol Adams (@babettesffest) at food festivals, who encouraged Chef to explore its possibilities. Chef has named his new dish in her honour! It is also fitting that Head Chef Siddartha comes from Rajasthan where this style of dish is popular.
Please contact us to book for this one day only menu. Our a la carte menu will also be available on this evening.
