Gunpowder Family run, home-style restaurant Gunpowder sees head chef Nirmal Save - formerly of Mayfair's Tamarind - serve quality Indian dishes that are a far cry from the 'bucket curries' (so called by the owner) served on nearby Brick Lane. With a menu that takes inspiration from family recipes and the vibrant, confident flavours of home cooking, dishes include crispy pork ribs with tamarind kachumber, pulled duck with homemade oothappam, and organic baby chicken chargrilled in tandoori spices. Intriguing desserts include old monk rum pudding, passion fruit and mint granita, and molten spice chocolate cake with masala chai custard.
