Indian street food restaurant group Mowgli has revealed plans for a Cardiff restaurant launching Spring 2019
In a tweet released by owner Nisha Katona, barrister-turned-chef and food writer, she announced the news that Mowgli’s street food will be arriving in the Welsh capital this Spring inside the old Pound Stretcher on Church Street.
Cardifffffff are you ready!!!! Today I signed for Mowgli Cardiff due to open Spring 2019 in Church Street. Small, tentative, slinking and very street. This juggernaut of hopeful ambition is taking our little Liverpool brand to wondrous places. Wish us well. Cardiff ❤ pic.twitter.com/n9QerDRGKE

The new restaurant will add to it’s existing sites in Birmingham, Manchester and two in their home city of Liverpool, with plans for Leeds and Oxford this year.
Mowgli is all about how Indians eat at home and on their streets. Nisha was born to feed the raw need Indians have for tiffins full of fresh bright intense flavour. Mowgli is not about the intimate, hushed dining experience. It is about the smash and grab zing of healthy, light, virtuosic herbs and spices.
The simple dishes of a Mowgli menu are a million miles away from the curry stereotype. These dishes convey the truth that real Indian food is extremely healthy, often vegan and always packed with fresh flavour. She gave up her 20 year career as a full time barrister to build Mowgli Liverpool and Manchester and now Mowgli’s Cardiff is set to open Spring 2019.
