Lotus, the fine dining Indian restaurant located on Charing Cross Road, known for its experimental and authentic cuisine, is delighted to announce the launch of their new Winter menu.
The team behind Lotus, including Chef Patron Bhaskar Banerjee, who has over two decades of experience, has created an alternative winter menu, focusing on seasonality and innovation. Using seasonal ingredients such as beetroot, partridge and oyster mushrooms, Lotus have created a range of unusual and authentic Indian dishes using the finest British produce available.
Lotus offers Indian gastronomy new to the West End; their new menu highlights include beetroot and sweet potato chop,served with spiced lotus root, Char-grilled duet of Red Snapper and Cobia, Chilli & Aubergine Salaan and Asparagus & Sugar Snap Poriyal. The signature specialty for this season is the Prawns Narkel Shorshe – fresh prawns cooked and served within a dehusked tender coconut. The dish is served with organic boiled rice, Indian lemon and chillies, recreating the dining experience of East Indian villages.
Sweet additions to the menu include the Raj Bhog, Clementine and Basil Doi, cottage cheese dumplings accompanied by steamed sweetened yoghurt to finish off the meal with a flourish.
Alongside their expertly curated wine list, Lotus has also added a whole new range of original and unique cocktails to their repertoire, which have been inspired by the diversity of Indian cities. The Sangam, inspired by the confluence of the three major rivers in India, offers a heady mix of Brandy, Sambuca and cinnamon, while the Colaba Talkies offer a fresh combination of gin, fresh mint, fresh watermelon juice and crushed ice, inspired by the home of the first film studios of Bollywood. The Bengaluru Habba pays tribute to the City of Bangalore’s annual Dushera Carnival with white rum, liqueur, spice and sandalwood. To top off the already diverse drinks offerings, there is also a coriander infused beer and a berry and caramel ale.
