STEP INSIDE LONDON’S LATEST SECRET HIDEOUT

INTRODUCING THE BHENDI BAZAAR

 Secreted away high above the bustling streets of Covent Garden is London’s newest secret drinking and dining den, Bhendi Bazaar, where renowned chef, Vivek Singh, takes you on a clandestine culinary adventure.

Created in collaboration with The East India Company London Dry Gin and Franklin & Sons and seating just 12, Bhendi Bazaar offers Vivek’s deliciously differently, subtly spiced dishes and cut-above cocktails.

Leave the bustling cold streets of London behind and be transported to the magical city of Mumbai and its Bhendi Bazaar, once described by the British as ‘Behind the Bazaar’ due to its tucked away location north of the city’s Crawford market.

Wind your way up the narrow staircase to the top floor of Cinnamon Bazaar and escape to this louche bordello-style room strewn with candles and complete with antique day beds, low tables and pink drapes for a magical dining experience.

The Bhendi Bazaar thali menu features a selection of unique dishes, created exclusively for the pop-up. For just £30 per person, the eight-course feast plus naan, raita and chutneys, includes beautifully presented dishes such as traditional Bengali-style holiday lamb curry; Punjabi chicken butter masal; Alleppey shrimp curry with green mango, crispy fried cod Amritsari and simmered black dal Makhani. An exclusively vegetarian thali feast is also available with vibrant dishes like Jaipur okra curry, Punjabi vegetable samosa and Mughlai mushroom curry to name a few.

Three bespoke cocktails have also been created specifically for Bhendi Bazaar. The signature serve is an intoxicating East India Gin cocktail infused with hemp and Franklin & Sons natural Indian tonic water with other cocktails including the Snake Charmer and The Lady of the Bazaar.

The Bhendi Bazaar pop-up is ideal for intimate Christmas parties and suppers, but individual tables are available.  For December only (lunch and dinner): catch it while you can.  Reservations: just drop us a call on 02073951400 and quote: Bhendi Bazaar

Signature cocktails by Mr Lyan

10th April 2018

Award-winning mixologist Ryan Chetiyawardana, aka Mr Lyan, has been busy working with us to create a signature Cocktail Menu to launch exclusively at Cinnamon Bazaar.

The bespoke cocktail menu from Ryan, who is at the forefront of innovation in the drinks industry, works in perfect synergy with our food menu. Cocktails include unique flavours such as carrot infused gin with curry leaf, ginger and cinnamon, crafted to pair with dishes on the menu or to be enjoyed on their own.

Our signature Masala Colae Float includes aged rum, Karma Cola and masala ice cream, whilst Makhani Gin Fizz features Beefeater Gin, shaken with cream, saffron tincture, almond, lemon, egg white and soda.

The Bazaar Old Fashioned with coconut washed Indian Scotch, coconut sugar and burnt cinnamon is a tipple guaranteed to tempt anyone.

If you’re a fan of the traditional favourite halwa pudding, you’ll love the Gajar Army & Navy which mixes carrot-infused Colombo Gin with honey-cashew orgeat & lemon, dusted with carrot powder.

Also featured are a selection of classics with a Bazaar-style twist. The Falooda Swizzel is our take on a mojito, with white rum, basil seed, creme d’abricot, lime, & amaranth cress. Whilst our speciality Gin Julep features Star of Bombay gin, mint, amchoor green mango, and black cardamom.

Vivek Singh comments: “As one of the world’s best bartenders, I knew Ryan would come up with an amazing list and he hasn’t disappointed! The cocktails are unique, interesting and pair perfectly with the market-inspired dishes on our menu.”

Ryan Chetiyawardana comments: “Teaming up with Vivek on this project was great fun. The concept of Cinnamon Bazaar is incredibly playful with so many flavour possibilities, so creating the cocktails was exciting. I look forward to seeing what everyone thinks!”

‘AT HALF PAST THREE, EVERYTHING STOPS FOR TEA’

23rd August 2017

Need a little pick me up? Feeling a little weary? Why not take a break and indulge in little bit of British tradition. From a special treat to a welcome break from a hectic days shopping our afternoon tea will hit the spot.

Anna Maria Russell, Duchess of Bedford is thought to have been the inventor of afternoon tea in the mid 1840’s at a time when most people only had two meals a day (breakfast and a late dinner around 8pm). She’s reported to have complained of ‘having that sinking feeling’ late afternoon. The remedy to that sinking feeling was a pot a tea and a light snack, taken privately in her boudoir

A while later friends were  invited to join her and fashionable society caught onto the craze. Fast forward and here we are at Cinnamon Bazaar, but we couldn’t just serve you Afternoon Tea, we’ve given it a twist and are proud to serve you our Traders High Chai.

Freshly brewed masala chai, flavoursome nibbles including Bhangra Lamb slider, to Aloo Tikki Chart and indulgent Carrot Halwa Roll

Available Monday to Sunday from 3pm to 5.30pm

Tea for One 17.50 per person

Tea for Two 35.00. Add two glasses of Cinnamon Bellini 45.00
