THE latest business to take a unit at STACK Seaburn is looking to spice things up with its Indian street food.

STACK Seaburn has announced Big Fat Indian Kitchen as the latest trader to snap up one of its shipping container units on the seafront development, near Sunderland.

Big Fat Indian Kitchen is the latest offering from the team behind popular Dosa Kitchen at Jesmond, Newcastle, where they serve authentic South Indian soul food and are especially known for their namesake dish – a traditional South Indian savoury crepe.

The new venture at STACK Seaburn will bring Indian style street food to Sunderland, with a menu offering authentic dishes inspired by the food served by street vendors across all of India.

Owner Sudharsan Murugavel hopes that the food will give visitors a new take on Indian food.

He said: “We want to offer something familiar but at the same time introduce something new, which is tasty, spicy, and moreish, the food is freshly prepared and made with carefully selected ingredients to bring a different perspective of Indian street food to the North East.

“The menu will feature our signature ‘rolls’, with meat, veggies, or paneer, rolled up in a Naan with spicy fries and salad. We will also be serving Thali, a cornucopia of different items, arranged on one big plate.”

Foods that have been honed across the streets, markets and beaches of India for centuries, form the basis of the menu and the owners at STACK hope that this will spice up the food offering on the seafront.

Neill Winch, CEO of the Danieli Group who own STACK Seaburn, said: “We are delighted to be able to offer another kind of mouth-watering cuisine to join the mix of food offerings at STACK Seaburn.

"We think Indian street food will go down a treat with our customers who already enjoy a wide variety of food from across the world.”

The new street food unit aims to be open imminently, with its official open date to be announced on STACK Seaburn’s social media channels.
