Gunpowder One Tower Bridge | Southwark Indian Restaurant
Ordinarily, combining gunpowder with Tower Bridge would seem like something of a no-no.
But this is no ordinary Gunpowder.
This is the followup joint from the tiny, lavishly praised Spitalfields Indian restaurant (the Guardian says “There doesn’t seem to be a theme to the menu, unless it goes, ‘What’s from India and utterly delicious?'”). And now, Gunpowder have a new plot… of land in the One Tower Bridge development with which to create a larger followup. It’s going to be set across two floors, with the restaurant up top, and an all-new bakery below.
Up on the first floor, the restaurant space will have room for more than double the number of diners the original could fit. More space means a larger kitchen, and a larger kitchen means more scope for more menu items, which wil include peanut masala chaat with chopped onions and chillies; Madras-style chicken lollipops; Bengali fish fingers with crisps & kasundi tartar sauce; and the original cheese masala sandwich will be back too.
Weekend offering (Saturdays only to begin with, with Sunday opening to follow) will feature new feasting menus of sharing dishes for two or more – expect to see Aunty Sulu’s wild rabbit pulao and Kerala beef ribs with masala potatoes.
And to top all of this off there’ll be a range of cocktails too, which will include Pani Puri Margaritas; the Gunpowder Regiment, and their Kitty Party Bellini.
Heading downstairs, you’ll find their all new baker, Custard, which will boast a double-height glass fronting, and some black & red tile flooring to mimic the feel of the Spitalfields restaurant.
It seems that, as parcels of land go, this is definitely going to be the best-looking Gunpowder plot we’ve ever seen.
NOTE: Gunpowder One Tower Bridge is due to open on the 3rd of September. Prior to the launch, there will be a soft launch with 50% off food at lunch and dinner from Wednesday, 15th August to Saturday, 1st September, as well as an exclusive preview for Nudge Members.
