Brigadiers – part of the JKS Restaurants group – has already garnered a reputation for itself thanks to its mouthwatering range of bar snacks, sizzlers, kebabs, chops and wood oven. Throw in an informal setting that televises live sport and it really is an ideal setting for rugby fans.
To celebrate one of the year’s biggest sporting events, Brigadiers have teamed up with Guinnes and launched a limited edition Six Nations Championship Match Day Menu. Available every consecutive weekend until 16th March, the Indian barbecue, beer, whisky and live sport venue inspired by the army mess bars of India is welcoming Londoners and rugby fans alike to eat, drink and socialise during the tournament.
The menu’s inspired by British classics and marries the dishes with the famous methods of Indian barbecue. The Poppadum’s & Chutneys are a must for the warm-up and pre-game analysis. You get a variety of poppadum’s, each one made from varying ingredients, which come with three different chutneys – each one delicious.
When the game is well underway, order in the selection of delectable starters. Chilli Pork Scratchings, Cheese and Onion Bhajias, Goan Sausage Pao and Veniso Nargisi Kofta Scotch Eggs will make sure you’re enjoying yourself whatever the score is.
As the game draws to an end, round it off with your choice from a hat-trick of indulgent main courses: Dum Beef Shin & Bone Marrow Biryani, Masala Fish and Chips, and Butter Chicken Pot Pie. My advice? You can’t go wrong with the biryani – it’s out of this world! Melt in the mouth beef with buttery rice that’s given an abundance of flavour from the juicy bone marrow. Fantastic, in a word.
By now you’re probably wondering where Guinness comes into this, right? Well, throughout the game fans will get to enjoy their own Guinness Butler Service making sure their glass is never empty!
Matches will be shown live in the Blighters bar area but there are three opulent private dining rooms too if you and your group want a bit more privacy.
Of course, the A La Carte menu is still available and trust me, you will be really spoilt for choice. The skewers at Brigadiers are to die for. The Haryali Prawn Skewer is so nicely marinated, while the Afghani Lamb Cannon Kebab Skewer is just cooked to absolute perfection. Seriously good stuff.
Wishing I could have tried the steak, chops and ribs (but that gives me excuse to go back again). The Rotisserie Chargha Chicken is well worth it though. Crispy skin, moist meat and a pair of flavoursome chutneys for dipping. Speaking of crispy skin, try the Masala Chicken Skins from the bar snacks menu. Amazing sliders to get your tastebuds excited.
