Bringing street cuisine to Cardiff

Cardiff’s Mint & Mustard is a well known Indian restaurant. Now chef Anand George has opened a sister, Chai Street, hoping customers will be tempted into trying traditional Indian breakfasts and street food

Chef George has developed a special Chai Street menu, with breakfast for example offering pachakari stew and mutta curry from Kerala, toasties from Aurangabad where he trained,

neighbourhoods to promote a greater sense of community. Dhruv Baker comments: “I’m thrilled to be involved in The Big Lunch as MasterCard’s Ambassador as the project embodies so many worthwhile objectives. I’ve enjoyed coming up with recipes for the new website which I think will be easy to prepare and suitably impressive – and there’s really something there for all taste buds.”

The best part of a million people across the land sat down last year on one day to have lunch with their neighbours, with over 85% of them saying that they feel a real difference
