Baluchi – London Bridge


Need a good dosa Indian food? 🥘 {gifted}⁣

Until 30th Nov, pan-Indian restaurant is offering a 7 course vegan tasting menu for £55 💰 They also stock vegan wines which we felt obliged to test 😉🍷 ⁣

The food is as beautiful as the venue  😍 Every dish BURSTS with flavour 🤤⁣
Here’s what we thought:⁣⁣⁣⁣
🌱⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣Bharwan Zucchini – Crisp courgette flower, masala soya mince, pickled garlic⁣
💭Like a soft, spicy samosa w/ a light batter. Sauce is sweet, thick, creamy, citrusy & coconutty. Pickled garlic is heavenly. Soy has a creamy potato texture⁣

🌱⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣Tandoori celeriac (GF) w/ mint chutney, burnt apple gel, masala seeds, gunpowder, coconut foam⁣
💭Flavour is outstanding, celeriac soft but retains a crunch, chutney is beaut. Nice contrast from the sweet apple, subtle coconut flavour, crunch from seeds⁣

🌱⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣Mushroom Ki Kebab (GF) – stuffed mushrooms w/ a cashew nut crumble⁣
💭 ⁣⁣ Lovely, juicy mushrooms, coated in a beaut (mildly spicy) seasoning. Crumble works SO well to add bite. SO many flavours!⁣

🌱⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣Sorbet (GF)⁣
💭⁣⁣ ⁣Sweet mango heaven⁣

🌱⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣Aubergine steak w/ coconut sukha, spiced tofu mince, spinach, superseeds⁣
💭V spicy w/ lovely sweet flavours. The aub soaked them up perfectly. Tofu adds nice substance!⁣

⁣⁣⁣⁣ 🌱⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣Subz ki thal (GF) – tandoori roasted cauliflower, tandoori aloo, gunpowder sabudana papad (served w/ tandoori roti & dal tarka)⁣
💭Cauli – V spicy, rich, strong tomato flavour. Cauli retains some bite, charcoal tandoori flavour is perfect. Love the cracker! Dal – Warming, creamy, not too thick, chunky & mild⁣

🌱⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣Dessert – Tapioca kher & tandoori pineapple⁣
💭 Beaut chai flavour, creamy, sweet & coconutty. Didn’t get a tandoori taste but enjoyed it a lot!⁣
