Behind the scenes at Spice Box Walthamstow

It’s well known that SpiceBox will be bringing their first Vegan Curry House to Hoe Street, Walthamstow next month (January 2019). Following a successful run on the festival and street food circuit with KERB, and a popular extended pop-up at the Hornbeam Cafe they are moving into a permanent spaceSpiceBox will bring something entirely new to the area with its all-vegan curry house offering meat-free versions of Indian classics.

The restaurant will be housed in an old take-away burrito shop, opposite Yard Sale pizza. It was just a small counter and take-away area before, but the back room is being stripped out to create an area for 30 covers with a waiting area for takeaway customers at the front. Spice Box owner Grace Regan has designed the interior herself to create a modern curry house with bright colours taking inspiration from Indian design and British curry houses. The artist impression of the entrance and waiting area…

SpiceBox’s menu is 100% vegan and packed with flavour and spice. There promises to be ‘Street Bites’ (my favourite part of the menu) –
  • Loaded Onion Bhaji with pickled onions, green chilli, date and tamarind chutney
  • Pani Puri, puffed puris filled with chickpeas, and topped with sev, chutneys, and kachumber salad
  • Potato and Pea Samosa with house-made cucumber and mint raita
Mains on offer include Chickn Tikka Massala; Jackfruit Jalfrezi; and aubergine Brinjal Bhaji; Bombay Potatoes; Saag Aloo; and Tarka Dhal, which was voted ‘best Dahl in Britain’ at The British Dahl Festival 2018.
Desserts of Biscoff and Cardamom Paratha with coconut ice cream; and Banana Chai Doffle; and mango sorbet.
Thankfully they’ll be open at weekends from 10am serving up the amazing vegan Indian Brunch we tried down at the Hornbeam Cafe.
There will also be take-away and an in-house delivery service from March 2019, aiming to run the UK’s first zero waste Indian takeaway and delivery scheme using refillable tiffin tins.
