The annual Hindu festival of Holi brings marketstalls across India to life – and we’re not just talking about the rainbow coloured paint-pelting that takes place on our streets! Our new special Holi Menu combines some of our favourite festival bazaar dishes, with some seasonal Spring dishes…

– Sip on our newest limited-edition Mr Lyan cocktail the Bhaang Sour. Created specifically for Holi 2017, this is our little homage to the bhang drink traditional drunk by Hindu’s in India which typically contains hemp (don’t worry our version uses a  herbal syrup that replicates the flavour with none of the bad side effects!)

– Start your meal with a Chaat Bazaar a sharing selection of our famous chaat dishes for the table

– Choose your main course of either Tandoori Kentish lamb fillet, mint chilli korma, masala cashew nut, or Lucknow style chicken biryani, burhani raita, or Kabuli kofta: chickpea, spinach and dried fruits, tomato fenugreek sauce

– Enjoy sharing sides for the table of our signature house black dal and garlic naan

– Finish up your meal with a traditional Holi sweet of hot gulab jamun, rasmalai sauce, vanilla ice cream, served with your choice of hot drink

Step Inside the Khari Baoli Private Dining Room & Bar

Fast forward to today and it is now Asia’s largest spice market playing host to millions of charismatic traders & shoppers who gather every day, not just to exchange ingredients but to feast and swap life stories- just like they’ve done for centuries.

It’s these lifelong timeless traditions that are the inspiration behind the name of our enchanting Khari Baoli dining room & bar.

Situated on the first floor above the hustle & bustle of the restaurant, the picturesque dining room seats up to 30 and features its very own private bar. Available for exclusive hire for parties between 12-30 guests, it is the perfect place for anybody looking to exchange their own stories with friends over fantastic food and drink!

Signature cocktails by Mr Lyan

13th November 2016

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!”

Our menus. Join us on a culinary adventure…

12th November 2016

A foreword by Executive Chef Vivek Singh

Our food and drink draws inspiration from ingredients and dishes that were popular in bazaars on the various routes over the centuries, and sometimes our own interpretation of those dishes. A journey through the menu will endeavour to showcase how blurred the lines of authenticity and regionality can be, and how ‘global’ or ‘cross-cultural’ or ‘fusion-cooking’ isn’t something that only happens now; it’s happened for centuries.

The menu itself hopes to be both a journey and an exploration, both discovery and re-discovery. Our chicken haleem will connect India to Iran, Kabuli kefta with tomato makhani sauce; Afghanistan to Punjab, millet, date tamarind & pomegranate salad will show our common links to the Middle East. Our Lahori chicken kadhai with root vegetables will connect Old Delhi to new Lahore. And our chaats will tell the story of the Khari Baoli spice traders that have been trading uninterrupted since 1551.

Bazaar Tales: Prelude

10th November 2016

Bazaars have long been places where people came to trade and exchange goods, ideas, and stories. The bazaar was a place to buy, to sell, to explore, to learn, to share, to entertain and be entertained. The colours, sounds, smells and energy of these Bazaars have for centuries been changing our tastes by exposing us to new flavours and new ideas.

The concept of the bazaar began more than 2,000 years ago.

In an era long before social media, this was the place where people of different religions, castes, colours and creed from around the world met, socialised, engaged, and entertained. These bustling marketplaces hummed with life as they welcomed all regardless of ethnicity, caste or creed. Citizens of the globe travelled to trade, socialise, entertain and exchange ideas, recipes and goods.

Long before the seed of democracy was planted Bazaars were democratic, open and welcoming places where there was always something for everyone, no matter who you were. No matter the time of day or month of the year, if someone needed or wanted something, the bazaar was the place they would find a merchant selling it.

They continue to be vibrant meeting places in major cities across the world, where even today, families dine, tourists browse and writers find their characters amongst the jungle of the market stalls. The Bazaar spirit is still very much alive, and has earned it’s place in the heart of London’s dining scene.

This is why it is such a pleasure to bring Bazaar to Covent Garden.
