Indian street food restaurant to open on Ecclesall Road
Indian street food and craft beer specialist restaurant The Cat’s Pyjamas is set to open its first Sheffield venue on 5 September.
Ecclesall Road’s newest restaurant, which boasts “the best Indian street food this side of Delhi”, was set up by Alison White in Headingley, Leeds three years ago after she spotted a gap in the market. Alison opened The Cat’s Pyjamas with Alfred Prasad, the youngest Indian chef to ever receive a Michelin star.
Speaking on the restaurant’s website, The Cat’s Pyjamas “celebrates Indian street food culture – the carts and street side vendors that dot the length and breadth of India’s regions, preserving age-old recipes whilst creating urban legends.”
The statement continued: “Inspired by the hawker’s local dishes, Goa’s seafood shacks and the toddy shops of Kerala, every one of our dishes is infused with the passion of India’s cooks. We’re combining the energy from our bustling kitchen with vibrant decor to evoke the colours, chaos and craziness of India and create a fun, easy-going, dynamic atmosphere.”
The restaurant also sells craft beer, with beers from the likes of Thornbridge, FourPure, Northern Monk and Magic Rock on the menu.
The Cat’s Pyjamas will open on 5 September at 631 Ecclesall Road, where Prezzo used to be. The restaurant is also offering 50% off on the opening week. Head over to the Cat’s Pyjamas website for more information.
