Bundobust celebrates Oktoberfest with Limited Editions
Via Rachael for Bundobust
Bundobust are adding a spicy twist to German classics with their limited edition Oktoberfest offering
Some things just work together. Indian street food and craft beer. German food and cold lagers in the last sunny days of September. It’s time, once again, for the cultural mash-up of the year. This Oktoberfest, Bundobust are dusting off their Lederhosen, shaking the spice rack over a range of German classic dishes, and brewing some world-class beers to pair with them. Available exclusively in Bundobust venues, the limited edition Oktoberfest specials will be available from Friday 15th September until Sunday 15th October.
Bundo Pretzel (£4.50). This collaboration with esteemed Bolton-based Bavarian bakery, Pretzel and Spelt, sees the handmade pretzels spiced with garam masala and turmeric, flecked with ajwain seeds, black salt, and mango powder. Served with currywurst dip and house pickles, the Bundo Pretzel pairs perfectly with a Bundobar! black lager.
Bundobust chefs tackle the German institution of currywurst with Currywurst Koftas (£7.50). Desi dumplings of cauliflower, cabbage and carrot are served with a classic currywurst sauce charged with garam masala and a dusting of curry powder.
Another twist on German tradition comes in the form of Moong and Sauerkraut Fritters (£5.50). Fried ground lentil, gherkin and sauerkraut dumplings spiced with parsley, caraway, chilli, and ginger. Served with a sweet cinnamon and jaggery apple sauce dip.
Fresh crunch comes in the form of Prost Pickles (£4) offering a medley of heritage carrot, mooli radish, turnip and cauliflower pickled with mustard, chilli, dill, and peppercorns.
These are perfectly complimented by Bundobust’s Bataka Salat (£5.50) – a German-Indian potato salad. Purple and new potatoes are combined with dill, curried sour cream, tamarind chutney and crunchy samosa pastry.
For those who can’t decide what to order, Bundobust have curated an Oktoberfest Combo for Two (£35), featuring Currywurst Koftas, Moong and Sauerkraut Fritters, Prost Pickles and Bataka Salat, served alongside the iconic Okra Fries and Chole Saag.
Traditionally Oktoberfest is all about the beer with the six designated breweries in Munich brewing official beers for the festival. Bundobust’s head brewer, Dan Hocking, looked to his Bavarian counterparts when planning Bundobust Brewery’s offering for their festival.
Bundobar! is a German-style Schwarzbier, or Black Lager, showcasing heritage Munich and Vienna Malts. It’s deep-roasted flavour playfully tempers the spices from the kitchen, with the smooth lager conditioning creating a beer that is both complex and refreshing.
Bundobust Brewery have also visited British lager heavyweights, Braybrooke, to brew a collaboration Pilsner for the festival. Night Market Pils epitomises what the two brewers look for in German beer styles – clarity of flavour, a crisp pallet, and ultimate refreshment.
Bundobust fridges will also be filled with a selection of German beers, from staff favourites Tegenseer Helles to official Oktoberfest beers from Munich.
For those who aren’t looking for a beer, Bundobust have sourced Fritz Willi – a deliciously irreverent modern Riesling which pairs perfectly with their German-inspired pots. And the Oktoberfest spirit will be out in true force when guests try Bundo Schnapps – a spiced Apple and Mango nod to the German post-dinner drink. Prost!
Kitchen: Open daily from noon to 9.30pm (Monday to Thursday) 10pm (Friday and Saturday) 8pm (Sunday) Bar Opening Hours Bar open for at least one hour after the kitchen has closed.
