They will be providing a taste of sunshine to events, festivals and celebrations in and around Hull with their delicious street food menu, all year round.

Tapan Mahapatra said: “Being able to bring some of our Chefs authentic childhood foodie memories to Hull has always been an aspiration. We have many happy memories of drinking Chai (tea) and eating Chaat (street food) in India with family and friends. Our continued investment and expansion within the city shows our confidence in the growing foodie scene which we are proud to be involved with.”

Chanda Massey is the new Tapasya Kitchen Chef, she has over 15 years’ experience in the industry, a diploma in Hospitality Management and an undoubtable passion for cooking. Having previously worked at Jimmy Spices in London and held the position of Head Chef at Vegiway Catering in Birmingham, Chanda is multiskilled in bringing a unique and interesting skillset to the Tapasya team.

The street food menu is inspired by the stories of Indian street food vendors from around India.

Customers will be able to enjoy the following dishes, and each comes with a story. 

Lucknow Kebab - Lucknow is one of the most famous cities in India for street food. The most well-known of dishes is the melt in the mouth Kebabs.

Chaat is a savoury snack that originated in India, typically served as a hors d'oeuvre at roadside tracks from stalls or food carts, they are one of the true hero dishes of Indian street food.

Railway Lamb Curry is a British Raj colonial-era dish that was served on long distance trains. The story goes that an English army officer, while travelling in a train, became hungry. He was offered the spicy curry, but it was too spicy for him, so they added some coconut milk. From that day on, this dish is served on many first-class train carriages.

Kathi Roll originates from Kolkata, India, this skewer-roasted kebab (chicken, lamb) wrapped in paratha bread is layered with onion, sauces including ketchup and chili, and normally a spicy green chutney.

Chole Bhature - This dish is famous all over India, but most eaten in Delhi where there are street food vendors on every corner. This breakfast dish consists of a combination of spicy and creamy chick peas and puffy hot fried bread called Bhatura, and is served with incredible sweet and sour chutney.

All of Tapasya Kitchen’s street food will be created using the finest Yorkshire produce, made to sing with the spices that they dry and grind in the kitchens of their two restaurants, Tapasya on Beverley High Road in Hull and Tapasya@Marina.

Street food is both communal and convenient and offers a kerb to table appeal. The food ranges from £3.99 – £5.99.

Their authentic street food offers a stunning fusion of the highest quality local produce and the vibrant flavours of the India. We hope you’re ready for your Eastern adventure…

Tapasya offers a truly unique Indian offering in the area from their Beverly Road and Marina Restaurants.  They challenge the traditional preconceptions of Indian cuisine by fusing fresh, Yorkshire produce with ancestral cooking techniques from Northern and Southern India. With added finesse and style, they add a fine dining twist to their menus.

The chefs’ passion and creative flare result in unique food that not only tastes wonderful, but is a feast for the eyes. This care and attention to their food offering means that Tapasya can showcase their unique fusion of East and West at its very best.
