Get ready for a taste of Southern India, as Hoppers restaurant gets set to open in October
Karam, Jyotin and Sunaina Sethi are the three siblings behind Gymkhana and Trishna restaurants. They have an eye for detail and a passion for new trends, investing in Bubbledogs, Kitchen Table, Lyle’s and newly opened Bao.
They are getting ready to add another restaurant to their portfolio, Hoppers. Hoppers is inspired by the roadside shacks of Tamil Nadu, where thin rice pancakes know as aappam are at the heart of the menus.
Traditionally aappam are served for breakfast. The light batter is fried until crispy, and has a thin-sponge like texture. It’s a vehicle for flavour, traditionally served with dals, sambol and chutney.
As well as meat, seafood or vegetable stuffed aappam’s, Hoppers will serve dosas, another classic South Indian breakfast, again stuffed with different fillings.
Rice and roast dishes will appear, including a buffalo shank biryani and Tamil spilt chicken.
It’s another exciting concept and one we at Eat Travel Live can’t wait to tuck into.
Hoppers – 49 Frith Street, London W1D 4SG – opening October 26 2015
