Indian street food favourite Bundobust has announced it will be launching a Middle Eastern-Indian fusion menu at its Manchester restaurants over the coming weeks to welcome Liverpool’s Maray to the city.

Teaming up with Maray, the popular Liverpool Bold Street restaurant tipped to open on Lincoln Square later this year, the chefs have put their heads together to introduce something a little bit different this fortnight.

Available for the next wo weeks only, a series of new collab dishes combine some famous Bundo customer favourites, like the bhel puri, okra fries and vada pav, with Maray’s most iconic dishes – not least, the infamous disco cauliflower.

Bundo’s okra fries become ‘jazzy fries’ – topped with tahini, tamarind, spring onion and chilli, and served with a Maray sauce trio of harrisa, zhug and tahini.

Elsewhere, the Bundobust vada pave becomes the valafel pav – taking the ever-popular deep-fried potato burger and adding Maray’s signature falafel into the mix.


As for Maray’s disco cauliflower, this inimitable dish weaves its way into Bundo’s bhel puri. Sharing the disco love, this classic Mumbai broken samosa dish is dressed with added caramelised cauli, flaked almonds and pomegranate seeds.
