LONDON EATERIES – Carom Soho Opens Pop-Up Summer “Spice Garden” at Butler’s Wharf Chop House

Summer in London is a wonderful time. With all those extra hours of daylight, spending more time outside is a must. Popular Pan-Indian restaurant, Carom, has all your outdoor needs sorted. Their second summer pop-up comes after a fire in Wardour Street temporarily shut down their venue in May, but now Carom is back and better than ever.

After a six-week residency in the City, Carom is partnering with Butler’s Wharf Chop House and has relocated to the Thames riverside to host an Indian “Spice Garden”. The venue is decked out with bright lanterns, a quayside deck and pergola, colourful décor inside and out as well as sweet-smelling outdoor plants – the perfect place to escape the city and enter an exotic world right on the river.

Guests will be treated to Executive Chef Vishnu Natarajan’s signature Pan-Indian dishes, which are bursting with flavour and colour. He brings a modern edge to shared dining, serving authentic meals in an elegant manner. The focus at Carom is healthy, light dining, and Natarajan has updated the classic Carom menu by adding a selection of new sharing plates.

There are light snacks and tasting plates, such as Tandoori Salt and Chilli Spiced Corn on the Cob and Carom’s famous Chicken Briyani. A Classic or Vegetarian Tiffin Tin menu is also available, which includes four dishes and is priced at £15. In addition, there is a fantastic array of delicious Indian-influenced spiced cocktails priced at a very reasonable £7.50, as well as premium Indian beer Kingfisher available on tap.

The pop-up will run until the end of September 2015, so grab some friends and enjoy the fabulous views of Tower Bridge from the colourful Carom Summer “Spice Garden” at Butler’s Wharf Chop House.
