Bacon and Halloumi Bites

We’re kicking things off with a tantalising starter that’s a little sweet, a little salty, and full of flavour. Our Bacon and Halloumi bites are enhanced by adding a sprinkling of Madhūka Nibs to the BBQ sauce, adding a touch of exotic charm to this hearty appetiser. The Madhūka Nibs add a caramel-like sweetness that beautifully complements the salty bacon and chewy halloumi. We guarantee this dish will disappear from your guests plates in no time!

Crispy Feta Rolls and Griddled Courgette and Melon Salad

Our Vegetarian starter is a symphony of contrasting flavours and textures. The Crispy Feta Rolls are coated with a drizzling of honey, chilli and Madhūka powder, adding a spicy sweetness that balances the tangy feta. Paired with a refreshing Griddled Courgette and Melon Salad, topped with a Madhūka vinaigrette. The perfect palate cleanser.

Sticky Chicken and Rice

For the main course, we have two hearty options, both featuring our star ingredient. The Sticky Chicken is lovingly basted with a Madhūka-infused marinade, which brings a sweet depth to the smoky chicken.

Pumpkin Risotto

For vegetarians, we offer a comforting Pumpkin Risotto, Enhanced with Madhūka powder. The Madhūka elevates the earthy pumpkin, creating a dish that’s bursting with flavour.
