Mowgli Street Food Steps into Leicester this Summer
Founded by Barrister and Food writer, Nisha Katona MBE, Mowgli stepped onto the foodie scene in 2014 and this Summer is set to open its doors in St Martins Square, Leicester on 12th August
“Leicester was the place to which we travelled on a family day out to buy bright plastic mugs, mad floral melamine plates, spices, incense and Indian vegetables. It was the bright lights big city in terms of Indian food” says Founder and TV presenter, Nisha Katona.
Mowgli has found exactly what it’s looking for; a quirky, cool and bohemian district.
Nisha says “We welcome our guests as if they’ve just stepped into our living room. It’s not a hushed dining experience, it’s all about the smash and grab of addictive flavours”.
Nisha, a dedicated curry evangelist, has fond hopes for Mowgli’s growth and she still insists on hand picking curry virgins for her kitchens, hand training each new Mowgli chef.
Boasting a fresh and fuss free home kitchen, the Mowgli experience features an extensive vegan menu of Indian food, pared back and unplugged.
“Our food is fresh, light, delicate and extremely healthy which are not words the UK would ever associate with “curry”. The selection of dishes feed that yearning Indians have for bright intense rich flavours”, says Katona.
Expanding quickly, it now operates two sites in its home city Liverpool, and two in Manchester, alongside one in Birmingham, Nottingham, Oxford and Sheffield. They are also set to open two more restaurants this year, in Cardiff and Bristol.
