Date of visit April 2nd 2019
I’ve worked in or around Soho for the past 8 years and one of the best things about working here are the awesome options for food. So when I saw a new Indian restaurant with Chinese influences opening I was hoping for the news that it would have halal options… lucky for us they have a Halal menu.
Fatt Pundit is the latest fusion restaurant offering small plates and amazing flavours. The vibe is casual and not too fancy so good for an after-work meal.
Heres what I ordered
You won’t find your usual boring Sugar loaded mocktails here, no sir, I had some of the best and Most unique drinks I’ve tried. KALA KATTAH MOJITO – Black currant, black salt and GUAVA CHILLI SOUR – Himalayan salt, red chilli rim, ginger beer. Both drinks were different to anything I’ve had, its a drink you can enjoy and slip and make it last the whole meal.
BEEF MOMO – leeks, red chilli, coriander | £5.50
We started with the simple Momo, a hearty, flavoursome steamed dumpling coming straight from the Steel Steamers, served with a spicy chutney with influences from Bhutan, Nepal, Tibet and other parts of India.
CRACKLING SPINACH – Sweet yoghurt, date & plum sauce, pomegranate | £7.50
This is up there with one of the best things I’ve eaten this year, in fact, it could be one of the best things I’ve eaten. I just loved it. The balance of flavours and textures from the deep-fried spinach worked in perfect harmony. (I actually went back a few months after visiting with a few friends and we ordered 3 of these because it was so good) Just amazing 10/10
BARRAH LAMB CHOPS – Stone flower masala rub, charred to perfection| £14
It’s not often you see lamb chops are cut like this, a double-cut fat juicy lamb chop perfectly cooked so it’s juicy and tender. Cooked in a simple but well-balanced masala rub to work well with the natural flavours of the charred grilled lamb. Another 10/10 dish.
LOLLIPOP CHICKEN – Spicy + crispy chicken wings served with Szechuan chutney | £7
Fried chicken wings with a lovely crunch and texture. I found mine a little dry because of the small size (compared to a leg) I’d give it a 7/10
BOMBAY CHILLI PRAWNS – Celery, Szechuan chilli, mixed peppers | £14
A welcomed addition to the halal food scene, the food here is great, service on point and the vibe matches the relaxed food.
Brownie sizzler to finish the meal, excellent dessert
Alcohol Served, Not all food is halal, so ask for the Halal menu which excludes the non-halal items like the goat.
