Sprout Bhajis are central to Bundobust’s first foray into the Christmas Sandwich game, starring in a festive version of their charity dish, the Bhaji Butty.

The Sprout Bhaji Butty is taking pride of place on the Christmas menu across all sites, with a key message of helping the homeless and vulnerable at this time of year. With each butty sold, £1 will be heading towards a local charity. In Leeds the chosen charity is Canopy Housing, who empower people who are homeless transform empty houses into homes and become part of the community. The Manchester charity is Mustard Tree, who help combat poverty and prevent homelessness across Greater Manchester. Liverpool, The Whitechapel Centre, who again do some vital work across the homeless as they look to assist people who are sleeping rough, living in hostels or struggling to manage their accommodation.  

As well as the famous bhajis, they will be serving a Festive Curry of winter vegetables in a warming, cinnamon and star anise-spiced tomato and coconut curry sauce. Both the bhajis and the curry are totally vegan.

A rotating range of Christmas beers on keg and in the fridges from the likes of Mikkeller, Anchor, Northern Monk, and some classic Belgian winter warmers.

The teams at Leeds, Manchester and Liverpool have some up with their own festive cocktails, Naughty or Nice. So which one will you be? Naughty is a spicy hot toddy whilst Nice is an alcohol-free apple-cinnamon sour. 

All Christmas specials are available in Leeds, Manchester and Liverpool until 23rd December. Check out Instagram (@bundobust) and Twitter (@bundobust / @bundobustMCR/ @bundobustLIV) for updates on Christmas beers as and when they change.
