Surprise surprise... It's another great street food offering from Belgrave Music Hall in Leeds as they played host to Bundobust this weekend with their three day pop up of vegetarian Indian street food.

My first taste of Bundobust was at the Street Feast at Belgrave last month (you can see my post here) where I was instantly won over by the great flavours their food has to offer.

For those new to Bundobust they are a collaboration of great talent featuring highly famed Prashad restaurant and The Sparrow Bier Cafe in Bradford.

Launching in April with their very own space down on Mill Hill in Leeds, this pop up was another teaser of what we can all look forward to once they are open.

This three day pop up featured a simple menu with four dishes and two cocktails.

 Fellow food blogger Diane and I stormed on down to fill our bellies and ended up with the Bundo Combo deal which meant we got to taste all four dishes. This was a very reasonable £15 and great value for money.

Our tastebuds were treated to Okra Fries, Bhel Puri, Spice & Rice and Idli Sambhar (pictured in order). 

 The Bhel Puri and the Okra Fries were my favourites.

The Bhel Puri had an amazing combination of fresh flavours and authentic Indian taste without being too heavy. This was also beautifully complimented by the different textures layering the dish with puffed rice, samosa pastry and turmeric noodles for extra crunch. A stern favourite and I had to go back for seconds on the weekend!

The Okra Fries were also a big hit, a great level of heat and crunch with a crispy coating of spices and chili. A great new insight into okra as I have only ever had it within a curry or steamed before.

Following such a tasty meal (which we devoured in its entirety VERY quickly) we moved on to trying their cocktails. The Lychee Sour had my name all over it and was a concoction of lambic beer, lychee puree, cinnamon and coriander. Perfectly sour and extremely refreshing... slightly too drinkable though!
Diane went for the Bhang Lassi which was extremely pretty with its garnish of fragrant seeds and spices.

All in all a great menu yet again from Bundobust. Fantastic vegetarian Indian street food and available soon in the heart of Leeds.

I look forward to welcoming them and their new independent street food offerings and craft beer with the opening of their very own space in April.
