The popular Gujarati restaurant's new vegan menu will use Meatless substitutes for a limited time only
Having kicked off 2022 with some expert Twitter-baiting, Bundobust has finally revealed the reason behind its meat-focused tweets: a new, limited-time collaboration menu with Meatless Farm. Launching today, 7 January.
Both Bundobust and Meatless Farm are Leeds-born businesses focusing on meat-free offerings, so it made sense to work together on these new limited-edition specials.
Bundo Does Meat is the result of several months of collaborative menu development between the two companies; a fully vegan menu that uses two of Meatless Farm’s hugely successful meat substitutes – plant-based chicken and meatless mince. The line-up promises a departure from Bundobust’s much-heralded Gujarati menu, with some “more traditional curry house dishes” according to Co-Founder Marko Husak.
The menu will be available across all Bundo sites in its hometown of Leeds as well as Liverpool and Manchester.
Meatless Farm’s UK Managing Director, Michael Hunter, said, “Meatless Farm and Bundobust have great synergy as passionate and creative Northern businesses with a meat-free focus. It made perfect sense to collaborate with them to create their Indian street food vegan specials, allowing us to offer even more delicious plant-based options for customers across Leeds, Manchester and Liverpool, this Veganuary and beyond.”

Meat(less) is on the market for vegans at Bundo
Without giving too much away (you’ll have to go along and see for yourself), the menu focuses on bringing a vegan spin to classic meat-based curries, including (I can't believe it's not) Butter Chicken, Keema Matar, and Shami Kebabs. And if that wasn’t enough, there will also be a vegan, alcohol-free beer available on tap, the product of a collaboration with Mash Gang, as well as a Spiced Fruit Chaat from Cloudwater Soda that combines mango, passionfruit and pineapple with Indian Jal-Jeera vibes from salt and cumin seed.
On the Meatless Farms side, the collaboration is spearheaded by Development Chef Ben Davy, the brains behind Leeds’s meaty Mecca, Ox Club.
Bundobust Co-Founder, Mayur Patel, said, “We experimented with a selection of meat substitutes, and Meatless Farm products lent themselves best to Indian food. Both Bundobust and Meatless Farm are Leeds-born businesses focusing on meat-free offerings, so it made sense to work together on these new limited-edition specials.”
All dishes will be available individually, or as a Bundo Does Meat Combo for Two, available at Leeds, Liverpool, Manchester Piccadilly, and Bundobust Brewery for £31.
