The annual Pongal Feast is back at Gopal’s Corner in London, celebrating Thai Pongal, Tamil Heritage Month and Veganuary.
On Saturday 15th January 2022, Gopal’s Corner is hosting a bottomless vegan ‘Pongal Feast’ at their branch in Markethalls Victoria. This one-off event is to mark Veganuary, Tamil Heritage Month in London, and Thai Pongal – the Tamil Harvest Festival, celebrated by 70 million people across South India, Sri Lanka, Malaysia, Singapore and afar.
Guests for Saturday’s bottomless Feast need to pre-book £15 tickets and choose from one of three sessions:
Session one: 12 pm till 2 pm
Session two: 2 pm till 4 pm
Session three: 4 pm till 6 pm
This year Gopal’s Corner will be donating £2.50 from every meal to the Trussell Trust, a UK food bank charity.
There are limited tickets available for each session so please book in advance to avoid disappointment.
On arrival at Gopal’s Corner, guests will be seated and served a traditional Thai Pongal meal on a banana leaf – piled high with four vegan or vegetarian curries, rice, and all the trimmings – including appalam (poppadom), dried chilies, relish, vadai (spicy savoury snack) and Pongal (traditional rice pudding). A member of staff will be on hand to top up your banana leaves at their tables.
About Gopal’s Corner
Sugen Gopal’s celebrated restaurant – Roti King – has been acknowledged as one of London’s ‘greatest cheap eats’ by the likes of Time Out, The Guardian and Eater. At Market Hall Victoria, Sugen pays homage to the restaurant opened by his parents in the 70s in Malaysia – Gopal’s Corner. Their Malaysian Tamil menu includes dosas, curries, noodles and their famous flaky, buttery roti canai which are made in-house and require years of training and practice. The secret to their success lies in hard work, perseverance and, in Sugen’s own words, a lot of love.
