Mowgli announce Sheffield opening datePosted by: Ashley Birch
... And you haven’t got long to wait!
Mowgli Street Food is all set to launch its first Sheffield restaurant next week, making it the Indian street food chains first in Yorkshire!
The Indian home kitchen open its doors on Ecclesall Road on Monday 15 April, in the former home of another Indian street food restaurant, The Cat’s Pyjamas.
To celebrate the ‘Sheffield homecoming’ they are offering curry lovers 50 per cent off all food for tables up to six (excluding Saturdays) until 28 April.
"We have many followers in Sheffield who are calling for the smash and grab of the Mowgli home kitchen” says founder and Indian Food writer Nisha Katona: “We are not everyone’s cup of tea, but we go where our consumers and followers want us.”
The former barrister turned restaurateur added, “Sheffield is the home town of my Aunt and Uncle- Aunty Geeta of the prawn curry! Many of my childhood memories are of eating mint choc chip ice cream adulterated with green Cardamom in their lounge in Kingfield Road, around the corner from Ecclesall Road.”
Mowgli, founded 2014, currently operates two sites in its home city of Liverpool, two sites in Manchester, and one each in Birmingham, Oxford and Nottingham with further openings planned in Leicester and Cardiff this year.
Nisha said: “I can’t tell you the deep joy and purpose it gives me to be able to go back to cities that I loved as part of my northern childhood landscape and honour them in any small way I can.
“With a homely eatery, jobs in a joy filled place of work and imperfect as it might be, the food of my home hearth... the Mowgli menu. All that that I can, I give. Sheffield may we serve you well as employers and feed you well, as your humble neighbourhood Indian home kitchen.”
