Joti Sohi, ex-Management Consultant and now London’s “Samosa Queen” today announces a three-month residency at the vibrant Tuk Tuk bar in Shoreditch after a two-week sell-out slot at Great Guns Social back in February. SSC is the brainchild of Rick Matharu, who is heading back to London from his native Canada to head up the proceedings and showcase his famous ‘Naanwiches’ – ridiculously filling, totally delicious, tandoori bacon-filled creations, complete with moreish cheese pull – alongside his renowned range of Butter Chicken, Punjabi Cheeseburger, and Dosa samosas – plus a new Bangers & Mash version, made with creamy mashed potatoes, savoury sausage, with sautéed onion gravy and peas in their signature crispy and flakey pastry. The vibe at Tuk Tuk is less ‘sit down’ and more ‘snack and sip’ so Rick and Joti have devised a more snacky menu to suit. It all kicks off now and runs every Thurs-Sat night until 10th August.
Rick’s ‘naanwiches’ will be made fresh on site every day and are “a cross between a BLT and a grilled cheese sandwich, but with Indian vibes”, says creator Rick, whose love of fusing his Indian heritage together with the best of North American fast food, knows no bounds. Kicking off the menu is the ‘TBOLT’ – Tandoori Bacon, onion, lettuce, tomato’, followed by the ‘Shahi Paneer Naanwich’ – creamy paneer with salad bits, achari mayo and sambal oelek. Rick’s famous fried chicken also features on the menu with his ‘ting tang’ sauce and this can also be served as a salad. The residency also promises new ‘secret’ samosa recipe as well as the classic Chaat Fries, Butter Chicken Loaded Fries and Gobi Wings. Vegans are well catered to with the Dosa Samosas, Chaat Fries and Samosa Chaat.
