Brunswick's Bhang has launched a series of super affordable dinners.
Housed in a converted warehouse space in Brunswick, Bhang offers a range of regional Indian street food. It incorporates lighter cooking styles from the southern regions with lots of coconut, red chilli, seafood and pork.
Its latest offering is a series of super affordable dinners called Thali Nights. The dinners will be held every four to six weeks and each one will be influenced by a different region in India. The first — held on Tuesday, March 27 — will kick off with Goan-inspired fare. Goa is located in the south-west of India and its food has a heavy Portuguese influence.
On the night, generous vegetarian and meat thali platters will be available for only $30. For the uninitiated, thali platters are Indian meals made up of lots of small dishes — so it's basically the dream dish for the indecisive. The Goan platters will include spiced eggplant curry, pakoras, hot and sour salmon, prawn-pickled radish — among other dishes — and a range of pappadum, pickles and rice.
There will be drinks specials on offer, too — including mango lassi ($5), Kingfisher beer ($5), glasses of Indian shiraz ($10) and mango lassi and vodka cocktails ($10).
Bookings are essential and can be made via the website.
