Brandonites this weekend continue to be spoiled with some of the best food, drink and entertainment that the many diverse cultures that comprise the city have to offer courtesy the annual Westman Multicultural Festival. Thanks to one local restaurant there will be a great opportunity to continue that run on Sunday with a collection of unique dishes and sweets that one doesn’t get a crack at every day in our corner of the country.
The Chilli Chutney on Sunday is set to host its second Street Food Night, offering some of the more unique menu items offered at street shops in India. Among offerings are Indochinese dishes complemented by a few regular favourites as well as sweets to top it off.
According to Chilli Chutney's Laxman Negy, items offered will be available via buffet (see list below) from 4pm - 9:30pm on Sunday at a cost of $24.50. Children under 11 are free.
Items in the buffet will include:
- Paani puri
- Gulab jamun
- Vegetable manchurian
- Saamber idely
- Chaat papari
- Kaathi vegetable rolls
- Chicken lollipops
- Gobi manchurian
- Butter chicken
- Tandoori paneer tikka
- Fried rice
- Indian tradition sweets
A similar event had been held in the fall, the response to which led to the re-introduction of a street food experience on Sunday.
Chilli Chutney opened from an initial Downtown Brandon location in 2011, having been operating out of its current space at 555 34th Street since 2015. Owner Laxman Negi first began working as a chef in the city in 2005.
