Asma Khan’s Darjeeling Express Launches TODAY!
The irrepressible Asma Khan will finally be launching her new restaurant, and one of the most anticipated openings of the summer, this afternoon.
Darjeeling Express will be serving home-style Indian food for lunch time service at Kingly Court in Carnaby.
With an all-women kitchen team, Asma will continue to pay homage to her royal Mughlai ancestry and the busy streets of Calcutta where she grew up.
As such, expect something similar to her Eid Sunday lunch menu she showcased yesterday:
Bihari Dal Phulki (v)
Mutton Shikampuri Kabab
Potato & Pea Samosa (v)
(all served with a portion of basmati pulao/ brown & wild rice pulao)
Calcutta Lamb Dum Biryani
Beetroot Raita (v)
Bengali Tomato, Prunes & Apricot Chutney (v)
Bulandshahr Rogni Roti (v)
Hyderabadi Mirchi Ka Salaan (v)
Hyderabadi Khoobani Ka Meetha with Cream
Having started as a Supper Club that served Indian food “lovingly cooked from family recipes that go back to generations”, Asma has finally brought her dream to fruition with the launch of her first restaurant at the top floor of Kingly Court.
Expect to also find an assortment of mouthwatering street food including papri chaat, and royal recipes, such as, lamb dum biryani, that are sure to take you on a journey from Calcutta in the east of India to Hyderabad in the south.
With the Evening Standard naming Darjeeling Express as one of the 15 best London restaurants of 2015, you might want to pop along or, better still, opt for advanced bookings via the website.
Top Floor, Kingly Court, Carnaby, London W1B 5PW.
