Lunch @ Gunpowder (Indian Tapas) - Spitalfields

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Last week, I took a late lunch and was looking for something a bit different. The weather was not very nice, so I did not want to wander too far. I ended up in Gunpowder, a small restaurant located just off Commercial Road (on White's Row) and not far from Spitalfields Market. Gunpowder is a restaurant that serves Indian food in small tapas-style portions, which is perfect for sharing and trying different dishes. Read below to see my review.


I visited on my own, so I decided to order a glass of white wine and two of the dishes. I was glad I did because the portions are quite small, and two was enough to make me feel satisfied. I ordered the aromatic rice in banana leaf and the organic baby chicken cooked in tandoori spices. A fragrant sauce was provided with the chicken, which went well with the meat and on the rice. The rice was also cooked perfectly with enough 'bite' to it and delicate flavours. I also loved the flavour of the chicken with the mix of the blackened skin. I could not fault the food at all.


Gunpowder restaurant is located at 11 White's Row, Spitalfields, E1 7NF, London. The restaurant is open from Monday to Saturday, 12:00 noon until 15:00 and then for dinner from 17:30 to 22:30. This makes it the perfect place to visit for a work lunch, after-work meet-up with friends or colleagues, or for a visit with friends after spending a Saturday at Spitalfields Market and Brick Lane hunting for bargains. 

Note that I visited the restaurant on my own, and my thoughts are my own. This is not sponsored by the restaurant.
