Cinnamon Kitchen’s #HouseofHoli is back – bigger, better and brighter than ever. From Tuesday, 7th March to Saturday, 18th March, leave the dull grey City at the door, don your protective white suit and step inside the madness at the House of Holi, for 30 minutes of paint-pelting friends, family and colleagues.
Sitting amongst the skyscrapers and the concrete, Cinnamon Kitchen, in association with India’s No.1 beer Kingfisher, will bring a vibrant injection of colour to the urban environs of the City with the return of their purpose-built party pod – popping up outside Vivek Singh’s modern Indian restaurant in Devonshire Square.
Holi festival itself takes place on 13th March, announcing the arrival of spring and the passing of winter. A welcome burst of fluorescence following London’s bleak and blustery winter, Holi is a time where families traditionally gather together and cover each other in coloured paint.
But of course, no Indian festival would be complete without a feast of delicious dishes and Cinnamon Kitchen will be getting into the spirit with a vibrant five-course Holi menu. At £38 per person (Monday – Friday and including a Play Holi session) dishes may include:
* Lentil stuffed wheat bread with yoghurt, tamarind and pomegranate
* Grilled Kentish lamb escalopes with black stone flower and smoked paprika raita
* Tandoori mushroom with mustard greens and chickpea bread
* King prawns in coconut and cardamom curry with ghee rice
* Carrot samosa, pistachio burfi and fig-semolina halwa
A pop up bar will also be serving an array of colourful Holi cocktails which may include the Holika Fire – appleback, fresh lime, homemade grenadine; and the Neela Heera – Broker’s Gin, Maraschino liqueur, Crème Yvette and fresh lemon, alongside Kingfisher beers, the leading Indian beer brand.
Tickets are priced at £8 per person, or £15 per person including authentic Holi bites and either a signature Holi cocktail, a Kingfisher beer or a mocktail.
