In late July 2018, the worst floods in nearly a century affected the state of Kerala in South India as a result of unusually high rainfall during the monsoon season. over 350 people died within a fortnight, whilst at least 82,400 people have been displaced. 

Many of our kitchen team call Kerala their home, and so much of our food at Hoppers is inspired by the culture and cuisine of Kerala, so this is a cause close to our heart.

On Sunday, 2 September, we will be putting on a vegetarian Sadya Feast at Hoppers Soho from 12-5pm to raise funds for the flood relief efforts. Seats will be available on a first come first served basis. Every member of staff working on the day will be volunteering their day off. Our suppliers have stepped up to support the cause with free/subsidised stock, and all the rest will be covered for by us. EVERY PENNY WE COLLECT ON THE DAY (NOT JUST OUR PROFITS) WILL GO TOWARDS THE RELIEF WORKS BEING CARRIED OUT IN KERALA.

We hope to see as many of you as possible on Sunday.

Across September, £1 from every bill will be donated towards the flood relief efforts in Kerala.

Taste of London

 

 

We came, we saw, we conquered!

 

This year we held fort at Taste of London for the full 5 days, and what a fantastic experience it was!

Thank you to everyone who came down to see us, and enjoyed our  signature Tamarind Chicken Wings, Paneer Kothu Roti and Love Cake ice cream sandwiches!

 

 

Our Exclusive Taste of London dish, the  Colombo Black Pork Sausage wrap went down a treat, creating a frenzy on social media.

 

 

The cherry on top had to be our live demo at The Fire Pit where we fired up a Ceylonese Whole Roast Black Pork Belly (with all the trimmings), billed as one of the best BBQ dishes of 2018!

 

 

We’ll be doing it all over again at Taste of London Winter. See you there!
