Pilau is the newest in a flurry of roving food vendors to find a home for just in time the winter. After a series of successful residencies, the Indian street food seller has opened its first permanent site in Fitzrovia, and will shortly be taking over another space in Soho before Christmas.
Those visiting their new Goodge street premises will be able to get your hands on a their hearty Indian wraps, choosing from their three classics: butter chicken, lamb and bone marrow, and spiced paneer, with your choice of toppings and homemade sauces.
If you’re feeling health conscious (and have self control to spare), then there’ll also be salads, including the Pilau slaw or their shoestring bhaji. For pudding, tuck into a cardamom custard tart or a fresh mango lassi. The Fitzrovia branch will be serving up alcohol, include a Cobra lagers and a mysterious ‘Pilau-colada’ cocktail, and both will be opening up shop for breakfast offering overnight oats.
Plus, you’ll be able to feel good while you eat - every dish sold in Pilau London will be matched with a donation sufficient to feed an entire meal to a child in India, thanks to their partnership with charity [Akshyra Patrar]. So there’ll be no reason to feel guilty even if you do opt for a butter chicken naan wrap and a custard tart over salad.
