Ringing in the official start to the festive season this Saturday (1st December) is Bundobust in Leeds with their mouth-watering Sprout Bhajis and Christmas menu. Tis the season to be spicy!
The Bhajis, made from sprout with onion, and broccoli, the vegan nibbles are spiced with fennel, caraway seeds, and chilli, and served with a desi-style cranberry chutney.
As well as the famous bhajis Bundobust Leeds will be serving a vegan Festive Curry of winter vegetables in a warming cinnamon and star anise-spiced tomato and coconut curry sauce, a Cinnamon and Belgian Biscuit ice-cream from local all-natural ice-cream makers Northern Bloc, and a range of Christmas beers from the likes of Mikkeller, Anchor, Northern Monk, alongside classic Belgian winter warmers.
Bundobust bar staff have come up with their own festive cocktails – The Grinch; green chilli and coriander-spiced daiquiri, and Stollen Christmas; cognac, cherry liqueur, amaretto, cranberry, and clove creating a liquid Christmas cake.
All Christmas specials are available in Leeds and Manchester from 1st December until 23rd December.
Everybody has jumped on the sprout bandwagon this year – you’ve tried sprout-flavoured crisps, you’ve savoured sprout-flavoured tea (well, maybe not), but now it’s time for the the OG sprout special.
