Chef Rick Matharu and winner of Food Network's Recipe to Riches first brought his homestyle Punjabi-Canadian cuisine to Canadians back in 2015. His fusion twist on classics like masala chaat fries and butter chicken mac 'n' cheese won them legions of fans - including the PM Justin Trudeau.
Last summer he started popping up around London and next up is a two week pop-up at the Great Guns Social in Borough for two weeks. Rick - and longtime friend and collaborator Joti Sohi will be responsible for a menu including a Punjabi Cheeseburger samosa and what's being described as a "filthy Indian riff on cheese and beans".
Plus here's a taste of what's on the menu besides the samosas:
- Butter chicken loaded fries - Masala Fries topped with cheese, Butter Chicken, tomato, onion, jalapeno, Achari Mayo,crispy fried onions, and cilantro.
- Punjabi cheeseburger - 6 oz beef patty with melted cheddar dressed with tomato, onion, shredded lettuce, sautéed onion and Achari Mayo. Add Tandoori Bacon.
- Rajma bowl - A cilantro and lime basmati rice bowl served with Rajma, a stewed kidney bean curry, topped with cheese, sauteed peppers, onions, and corn. Served with Punjabi pico de gallo, a creme fraiche-adobo pepper chutney, crispy onions, cilantro and chilli crisps.
