British Sandwich Week Special

Fresh Indian Street Food Wizards PILAU collaborate with Max’s Sandwich Shop to create Bombay Bad Boy. 20-26th May

Launching during British Sandwich Week, 20-26 May, PILAU are excited to announce their Bombay Bad Boy collaboration with man-of-the-moment, Max Halley of Max’s Sandwich Shop.

Known for serving the best Indian street food in London, PILAU’s Bombay Bad Boy plays on Max’s sandwich philosophy of combining hot, cold, sweet, sour, crunchy and soft ingredients and is a playful twist on his much-lauded Bhaji Smuggler Sandwich. This colourful creation will contain a mix of zesty lemon marinated chicken, sour lime-pickled onions, crispy PILAU slaw, coriander ketchup, fresh cut herbs and PILAU’s signature crunchy Sev. Max has specifically chosen the Sev to take the place of his infamous Bombay Mix filling, as Sev is a popular Indian snack food made from short pieces of chickpea flour noodles.

Max’s Sandwich Book: The Ultimate Guide to Creating Perfection Between Two Slices of Bread is released on 17th May. The Bhaji Smuggler is PILAU founder George Pitkeathley’s favourite sarnie from the book and the Bombay Bad Boy is their special PILAU take on it.

The special will be available from PILAU for two weeks from the 21st and true to PILAU’s menu, every time a customer orders a Bombay Bad Boy, PILAU will donate a meal to a child in India as part of their long-running FEED YOURSELF – FEED A CHILD project, which has so far seen them donate thousands of meals.

Founded in 2015, PILAU is a celebration of both our love for Indian culture and passion for London’s restaurant scene, resulting in the ultimate fast-casual dining experience. Offering fresh, authentic, good-quality Indian food in an accessible and contemporary format, PILAU’s two London eateries are perfectly positioned in Soho and Fitzrovia to solve the eternal question of picking something healthy, and most importantly, tasty for lunch. The Bombay Bad Boy will also available via Deliveroo and Uber Eats. PILAU is also available via City Pantry, making it the perfect option when considering an inspiring lunch for a crowd.

Max and George are long-time friends and fellow entrepreneurs who have grown up and grown into their shared love of business and food, but the Bombay Bad Boy is their first time collaborating.
