Benares is paying homage to the diverse culture and heritage of Indian street food with a new menu set to launch this month at the Michelin-starred Indian restaurant and bar.

Available from next Monday until Christmas, the street food menu features five dishes, each of which have been designed by a chef from the Benares kitchen.

The menu is made up of dishes from every corner of India and pays homage to the diverse cuisines of each region and stays true to original preparations and recipes passed down through generations.

The dishes are designed to be eaten by hand and are available only in the Benares lounge area.

The street food menu includes:

  • Chicken Tikka Crispy Naan with Smoked Tomato Dressing, inspired by the Punjab region of North West India
  • Lamb Kofta Roll with Mint and Coriander Salad, typically found in Lucknow, North East India
  • Grilled Curry Leaf Seabass and Seasonal Salad, a classic Southern Indian dish found in Goa
  • Quinoa Salad, Samphire and Red Onion Bhajia - from the East Indian region of Kolkata
  • Pickled Prawn with Crispy Rice Pani Puri a speciality from Mumbai, West India.

Dishes will be priced at £7.50 per dish (or £5.50 for vegetarian dishes) or you can go for all 5 dishes for £30. It looks to be a great way to snack your way around the continent.

The new Benares street food menu launches on Monday 12th September 2016 at Benares, 12a, Berkeley Square, London W1J 6BS. Follow Benares on twitter @benaresofficial
