Dev Biswal, the chef-owner of Ambrette restaurants in Margate and Canterbury, plus the Devil in Rye, has announced a series of special events to celebrate its 10th anniversary.
Biswal opened The Ambrette on its original King Street site in Margate on 28 January 2010, where it quickly established a reputation for authentic Indian regional dishes, showcasing local seasonal produce fused with exotic ingredients and given a contemporary gourmet twist.
The restaurant will celebrate with a special 10-course tasting menu priced at £49.99, reprising a popular dish from each year of the restaurant’s past. These will include: Nile Perch; Goan style pork loin; Mussels in Kerala style sauce; Calcutta style prawns in coconut shell; Rye Bay Scallops and Chocolate silk.
The 10-course tasting menu will be served in Canterbury on 28 (sold out) and 30 January, and in Margate on 29 (sold out) and 31 January.
“When I first came to Margate in 2006, it was a very different place to what it is now and people said I was crazy to bring my style of cooking to the faded seaside town,” says Biswal. “I may still be doollaly – but it was the right decision.”
For Veganuary, The Ambrette is reducing the price of its Vegan Tasting Menu from £49.95 to £34.99 on 15 January in Canterbury, 16 January in Margate and 18 January in Rye.
