Pongal Feast is back at Gopal’s Corner in London, celebrating Thai Pongal, Tamil Heritage Month and Veganuary.
On Saturday 14th January 2023, Gopal’s Corner & Market Halls are hosting a bottomless vegan ‘Pongal Feast’ at their branch in Oxford Street, London.
This annual 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.
Gopal’s Corner will be serving a traditional Tamil vegetarian feast, typically served during Thai Pongal. Banana leaves will be piled high with four vegan or vegetarian curries and all the trimmings – including appalam (poppadom), dried chilies, relish, vadai (spicy savoury snack) and Pongal (traditional rice pudding). Everything will be unlimited for the ultimate feasting experience!
There will be four ticketed feasting sessions throughout the day. Tickets cost £15 and seats are only available when booked in advance.

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.
