Finest Chinese Restaurant In Warwickshire


F


Chef Aktar Islam, formerly the chef director of Lasan Group in Birmingham, is to launch his first solo restaurant, Opheem, in Birmingham city centre in May.


Opheem will showcase 37-year-old Aktar’s passion for progressive Indian gastronomy while delving into the country’s ancient culinary traditions, championing the subcontinent’s distinctive flavours, spices, textures, taste balances and applying modernist techniques and flair. Aktar says: “Opheem will take diners on an intoxicating culinary journey. We are going back to the future to explore the diverse culinary heritage of India and explore the foundations of this grand cuisine. We will seek to emulate the work of chefs attached to the royal courts. They were at the forefront of gastronomy and took ingredients from India and combined them with influences from China, Persia, Arabia and Afghanistan, as well as later influences from France, Portugal and Britain."


Menus will include an à la carte comprising eight starters and eight mains, complemented by five traditional classics, such as Aktar’s signature Hyderabadi goat biryani and other recipes inspired by his mother, Dilara. There will also be a tasting menu, with an optional wine flight, and lighter “grazing” plates.





Main courses will feature allepy (Cornish turbot, courgette, wilted greens, tempered Keralan coconut milk and raw mango) and Aktar’s unique spin on vindaloo (pork jowl, pickled vindaloo purée, star anise heritage carrots, roasted whey onion and confit garlic). There will also be a cool, relaxed bar where Opheem snacks and small plates can be enjoyed. Interiors will be dressed in natural materials, such as stone, wood and raw metals, and will be laced with luxury through the use of soft leathers and silks.
