CHAAT To Open Its Doors This May 2020 On Level Five of Rosewood Hong Kong

(HONG KONG, 13 May 2020) – CHAAT brings a bold rendition of India’s street snack culture to a refined setting boasting sweeping skyline views. Set to soft open on 21st May 2020, CHAAT joins tapas-inspired restaurant Bayfare Social and American charcoal-grilled meat specialist HENRY within the city’s hottest gastronomic social hub on Level Five of Rosewood Hong Kong.

CHAAT is the Hindi term “to lick”, and as such, invites guests to transport themselves across the Indian peninsula with an upscale menu that will cause you to savour every last morsel. At CHAAT, Chef de Cuisine Manav Tuli re-imagines his favourite traditional street snacks from his childhood growing up in central India, which includes his hearty homemade Paneer Cheese and Pav Bhaji. Utilizing a trio of authentic tandoor ovens, the colourful menu pays homage to the rich and varied culinary lexicon of India’s central states and Bombay coast, the northern Punjab and Kerala in the south. CHAAT’s convivial atmosphere revives the feeling of India’s much-loved social bazaars, where families, friends and new acquaintances gather over a shared love of food and conversation.

 

Introducing Chef de Cuisine, Manav Tuli

Chef Manav Tuli draws from a wealth of experience over the past 18 years in some of the finest kitchens of London and India to create a menu of bold, inspiring renditions of much-loved Indian favourites. Manav began his culinary career in the southwestern coastal state of Kerala, where he gained a firm foundational knowledge of southern Indian culture and its cuisine. He then embarked upon an exciting opportunity at luxury hotel group Oberois in the princely state of Rajasthan, where he refined his technique and learned to adapt to a new style of Indian cuisine given the region’s dry and arid climate. After a short stint in The Oberoi Mumbai, Manav ventured out into the world to discover international cuisines, starting in the resort island of Mauritius and finally landing in the gastronomic capital of London. Manav worked his way up the culinary ladder, first joining Chutney Mary Chelsea in 2011 as Sous Chef, before opening Chutney Mary St. James as Head Chef in 2015. Manav then went on to open modern Indian restaurant Tamarind in 2019, where he achieved the first Michelin star for an Indian restaurant in London.

 

The Design of CHAAT

CHAAT’s gilded bronze accents references to traditional Indian brass bowls and cutlery. The focal point inside the restaurant is a custom-made wall mural by the Hyderabadi contemporary artist Kandi Narsimlu. His naive, giant figures on colourful, scenic backdrops tell a vibrant narrative of bustling Indian street life, where the ritual of roadside chaat forms part of the cultural fabric of towns and cities that transcends social strata to unite people around the shared pleasure of eating.

Stay tuned this late May for CHAAT’s official opening for a taste of authentic Indian flavours in Victoria Dockside, Rosewood Hong Kong.
