It’s soon-to-be June, and we got you covered with the best things to do this week! There’s the Gujarati food festival and CHIJMES Summer Beer Festival for an indulgent binge session, and also abstract graffiti art by Futura.
Enjoy a Gujarati Feast with Rang Mahal
Rang Mahal will be flying in renowned Gujarati cuisine caterer, Tapan Chokshi and his team of chefs for a 10-day festival! This 24 May to 2 June, experience an array of unique flavours, and a wide range of vegetarian dishes.
The collaboration is a contemporary refinement of traditional foods and all-time favourites. Notable mentions include Vaal Nu Shaak, a fiery curry made from protein-rich butter beans, and Kesar Shrikhand, a sugary dish made from strained yoghurt with a dash of saffron.
