Ravinder Bhogal’s Vegan Indian Menu at W London near Leicester Square

The Perception Bar & Lounge at the W London hotel at the bottom of Wardour Street will be featuring a vegan Indian (mostly) menu from British chef Ravinder Bhogal from Monday 5th March until the end of June.  The food will be great, and the inspiration comes from Ravinder’s own experience of cooking for her niece after she became a vegan.  Plant-based food can be delicious, as seen by the explosion of vegan options around the capital.  Note that it’s not a pop-up as such, as Ravinder will not be in the kitchen, but it sounds brilliant.

 

“From Monday 5th March, W London – Leicester Square will whet appetites again as the hotel’s Dining Series kicks-off its next collaboration with British Chef, Ravinder Bhogal.

 
Bhogal will combine her global culinary influences based on her heritage and travels with the daring and bold attitude of W Hotels, creating her first entirely vegan menu that will be served in the hotel’s bar and lounge, The Perception at W London, until the end of June 2018.

 
The menu has been created in homage to Ravinder’s niece who became a vegan two years ago forcing her to think and cook in an original way – to design delicious dishes that were satisfying, creative and nourishing, but were incidentally vegan too.

 
The menu’s goal is to use the most natural produce to create delicious plates that will excite self-identifying vegans and omnivores alike with dishes such as Besan Fritters, Coconut Yoghurt and Curry Leaf, Asian Mushroom Ragout with Sweet Potato Gnocchi, and Ravinder’s niece’s favourite, Caramel Tofu with Garlic Confit Rice and Chilli Smacked Cucumbers. Sweet tooth’s can also expect to be sated with Rose, Coconut and Cardamom Doughnuts and a refreshing Lemongrass and Lime leaf Sorbet served with Charred Pineapple and Cashew and Black Pepper Praline.

 
After a staggering reception with the Dining Series’ first chef, Magnus Reid, Bhogal will add further appeal to W London being at the epicentre of London’s foodie landscape. Bhogal rose to fame when she was named by Gordon Ramsay as his new Fanny Craddock, on The F Word. In 2016 Bhogal opened her first restaurant, JIKONI, to a rapturous reception in the heart of London’s bustling Marylebone and was named one of London’s 100 Tastemakers in Food & Drink, as part of the Evening Standard’s Progress 1000 list of London’s most influential people.”
