PICTURE PERFECT: ATMOSPHERE KANIFUSHI

0
It’s hard to resist the charms of an awardwinning, all-inclusive Maldivian resort, with its rustic-chic style beach villas, its serene ambience and impeccable service. The island is lush with tropical vegetation, spreading idyllically along a hypnotic 2km-long turquoise lagoon. If you’re looking for a total hassle-free, five-star experience, Kanifushi Island is pretty much your proverbial paradise isle, as Marisela Paesano discovers…
LOCATION The Maldives is situated in the Indian Ocean some 400 miles southwest of the southern tip of the Indian subcontinent, making it relatively short flight of less than five hours from Doha. Qatar Airways has two daily non-stop flights from Doha to Male; a red-eye departing shortly after midnight and a daylight flight departing early morning. We were greeted by Atmosphere Kanifushi Island staff at Male airport and taken for light refreshments at the property’s arrival lounge, while you wait for your sea plane ride. The coral atolls of the Maldives are scattered across the Indian Ocean, just north of the equator. The Kanifushi Island is just 30-minutes scenic flight from the Malé International Airport via Sea Plane with Trans Maldivian Airlines (a return transfer is US$490, including taxes). On arrival to the Island, we had a very warm welcome filled with music and lots of smiles by Atmosphere Kanifushi’s staff members.
BEACHFRONT VILLAS Imagine rustic-chic style Beach Villas with a direct access to the silky white-sand blue lagoon and surrounded by coconut trees and lush tropical vegetation. The entire resort is built with natural materials, timber, granite and stone, the resort style is the perfect fusion between traditional and modern architecture. We checked into the lavish Sunset Junior Suite with direct beach access and sunrise views. There’s too much to take in, but we were specially blown away by the open-air bathroom which takes up the space of an entire garden, the huge whirlpool bathtub was stunning and tropical plants line the walls of this heavenly space. Our next favourite area is the private deck which leads right onto the beach. Sun loungers have got our names written all over them – we spent so much time here relaxing and topping up the tan. Inside, it’s very spacious, you have plenty of storage room, a comfortable king size bed as well as a beautiful sofa to lounge on. However, the standouts of this room were in the little details. These included an array of high-tech toys and gourmet treats. The mini bar is replenishing twice a day and you have your own personal room boy that will make sure you get everything you need to make your experience even better.
SERVICE AND FACILITIES The service is faultless. Guests have their own room boy to look after them throughout their stay, and the rest of the staff will soon feel like old friends. Facilities include the Akiri Spa by Mandara, Dive and Sail center, Kids Club, Club House and five amazing restaurants to dine in! Daily snorkeling trips, excursions and adventures are also available upon request.
FOOD AND DRINK Just because you are in the Maldives, at a 5-star resort in one of the most secluded spots in the Indian Ocean, doesn’t mean that the gastronomy is slacking. Its very much the opposite at Atmosphere Kanifushi, where the food game is so STRONG. World cuisine is represented through the resort’s five dining outlets.
THE SPICE The main restaurant on the island serves a wide variety of international cuisine, buffet style and live cooking stations are available here. The spectacular beach-side breakfast buffet caters to all tastes with American, Asian Continental and local Maldivian specialties include ‘Mas huni’ (tuna with onion, coconut and chilli), or ‘Faro Mas Riha’ (a spicy reef-fish curry). The breakfast is a delectable spread. Flaky pastries, tantalizing egg dishes, cereal bar, fresh fruit counter, healthy juices and so much more. They also serve lunch and various themed evenings such us Indian Ocean Night; a Culinary Journey featuring virtuoso cooking displays from around the Indian Ocean. The Passage to India soirée is a fabulously exotic buffet-banquet of curries, tandoors and dosai, with steamy cooking stations. The restaurant has a beautiful terrace that overlooks the beach. From the extensive breakfast buffet for lunch and dinner, The Spice is infinitely beachside indulgence at its best.
THE LIQUID The main bar of the resort serves an array of exotic mocktails and cocktails. Strategically located next to the pool, it is probably one of the most favored locations on the island, to unwind and absorb the stress-free Maldivian environment.
THE SUNSET One of our favourite spots on the island, the bar – restaurant has an infinity pool that offers a stunning view of the turquoise lagoon. You can enjoy a la carte lunch or dinner, the menu offers a specialty fusion cuisine, showcasing Asian and Mediterranean dishes. The bar has a relaxed atmosphere where you can definitely feel you landed in paradise.
JUST VEG Our absolute favourite food experience at Atmosphere Kanifushi had to be the venue that whipped up the most exotic flavours and unusual dishes. A masterpiece crafted vegetarian menu specifically for Jain Cuisine capable to convert the most committed carnivorous guests. A pure vegetarian restaurant, a FIRST in the Maldives, serving outstanding and delightful vegetarian cuisine from the Mediterranean, Arabic and Indian regions. Just Veg redefines vegetarian cuisine by experimenting with original flavours combinations, a truly vegetarian gem in the island. Qatar Airways operates direct flights to Male. Visit www.atmospherekanifushi.com or call +960 3339 992 for reservations and more information.
TEPPANYAKI GRILL At the resort’s Japanese restaurant, by the sea, chefs conjure up outstanding sushi, sashimi and Japanese fusion dishes. The show of Teppanyaki griddle cooking in the open kitchen is pure theatre. An authentic Teppanyaki experience, where you can enjoy a delectable dinner.
ACTIVITIES & RECREATION The resort has a plethora of activities on both land and sea, for all ages – enough to keep even the fussiest of travelers entertained. Here are just some of the best excursions and pastime that we’d recommend:
SNORKELING TRIPS What lies beneath the surface? Go deeper into the mysteries and secrets of the Indian Ocean. Immerse yourself in the house reef and speedboat to spectacular sites. On our morning ride out to sea, our instructor and the boat’s captain go over safety procedures and reassure us that this is going to be one of the most amazing experiences of our lives. Little did we know how true this was until hopping over the edge of the boat and starting our soothing snorkel session. We spot intricate bouquet of coral and groups of colourful fish.
SUNSET CRUISE Possibly one of the best excursions we embarked on at Atmosphere Kanifushi. Get ready for and unforgettable evening. They attentive staff had some canapes ready for the trip alongside with expert staff who will keep an eye out for the dolphins at sea. You will sail the blue water all while watching the dramatic sunset and how the Maldives does day to night. It’s a spectacular view that you will definitely want to capture on camera.
WATER SPORTS Now, when we say that Atmosphere Kanifushi is a haven for on-water activities, we are not exaggerating. You name it and they have got it! The resort has an array of water sports: jet skiing, water skiing, wakeboarding, catamarans, windsurfing, paddle board and much more. The choice is yours!

“Going to Pub in the Park is like a homecoming. I lived in Warwick from the age of 10 and went to Warwick School and then Myton and then I started building my career.
“My parents still live there. You will often see my Churchill Arms truck around Warwick town centre.
“To be asked to be among the calibre of these chefs and musical talent is a real honour and its a real honour to be seen in that light with some of my cooking heroes and mentors.
“I am really excited for the Churchill Arms to be in and among it.
“It is a great opportunity to be with some of the vest chefs in the country and Warwick is really lucky as it will be a beautiful setting right across the river and there will be brilliant food and a real festival party. It’s going to be fantastic.

Tradition: a misguided argument against mandatory hijab

Yes, it is indeed a widely-used argument. But, believe it or not, popularity does not and will never determine rightness. A million people can be wrong. Well, ‘wrong’ is too broad of a word; ‘ignorant’ is more fitting accurate.
I hate it when ‘traditions’ are used as arguments against novelties. If I ask you to define the word, you would probably answer it as ‘old’ things; my dictionary defines it as things that have been around for many generations. The more I think about it, the more I don’t see how any of those definitions support the arguments.
Old things used to be young. Being passed from one generation to another means there was a starting point. Those definitions insinuate that traditions started as novelties which existence were initially opposed by the reactionary voices in their respective societies, insinuate that novelties will become traditions later in the future.
Of course, one may also argue novelties must be conceived within our own borders. We should never let foreign powers dictate our identities and we must always thrive to be ourselves. If you are an Indonesian Muslim, why become an Arab? But, too bad humans don’t live in vacuums.
Of all the things we consider as traditional to certain places, lots (and, depending on your backgrounds, probably the majority of them) are “foreign”. The traditional food we eat and the traditional arts we pretend to care about would probably would not exist without outside influences.
If you think your country is unique, just remember it is not the only one that has Mother Nature in its mythology, not the only one that has flutes and drums among its traditional music instruments and it is certainly not the only one where cheese, noodles and fried battered foods are traditionally eaten.
Of course, as an Indonesian, I can use my country as an example.
This land of Austronesians (and Melanesians as well) has been influenced by foreigners since forever. Mie ayam, nasi goreng and pangsit would not exist without the Chinese. Sindhens, gulais and Garuda would not exist without the South Asians. Keroncong, tanjidor and pastel would not exist without the Portuguese. Klappertart and kastengel would not exist without the Dutch. Nasi kebuli and martabak would not exist without the dreaded Arabs. Apart from the English loanwords, our national language is also laced with Indian, Chinese, Dutch, Portuguese and, yes, even Arabic ones.
Islamic extremism is indeed something to be fearful about. But, it is pointless to fear Arabisation when some of our supposedly beloved ancestors ‘endured’ it and, in fact, had their identities enriched thanks to it.
Okay, it is a very simplistic statement. Foreign influences can both enrich and devalue our heritage. It depends whether the existing traditions are ‘improved’ or wiped out entirely. But, in the context of the previous paragraph, I solely use the word ‘enrich’ because some Indonesians don’t realise that their so-called beloved heritage has Middle Eastern influences in it.
Should I also mention that Islam is a religion of fucking Middle Eastern origin? I mean, if they really fear Arabisation, why don’t they ditch a religion that uses Arabic as its fucking liturgical language and start practicing animism like their ancestors did?
In case you haven’t noticed, I draw a strict line between Arabophilia and Islamic extremism. The former is an entirely secular endeavour while the latter often goes along with the embrace of Arab culture… or to be precise, what they feel is Arab culture.
In reality, there is no such thing as Arab culture, only cultures . Plural. A country is considered ‘Arab’ because it uses literary Arabic as its national language, NOT because of its cuisine, clothing, arts and brand of Islam. The Maghreb, the Horn of Africa, the Arabian Gulf and the Levant are culturally and religiously distinct from one another.
If you actually learn the basics of Arab cultures, you would realise those Muslim extremists have little knowledge about the traditions; if they really are into them, they would wear agal, eat hummus, drink Arak, watch MTV Arabia, do belly dancing and, you know, actually speak Arabic as their fucking first language!
And, just like the Islamists, many moderate Muslims also know nothing about Arab cultures. They see long white garments and hear Arabic-sounding words and they think the Arabs are invading! While I am with their anti-extremist stances, I despise how they use this crisis to justify their anti-Arab prejudice.
Moderate Muslims constantly claim they are against prejudice despite their blatantly prejudiced attitudes.. How can you defend yourselves from your barbaric enemies when you keep pointing the guns towards your feet? How can you fight the epidemic when you falsely see yourself as immune?
Also, those people forget how Indonesia is being infiltrated by contemporary western cultures which have done a great job wiping out our traditions. While the west is indeed more free than the Arab world, the double standard is too infuriating for any reasonable humans to ignore.
And I haven’t talked about the misogyny yet.
The title of this article clearly says ‘mandatory hijab’. I believe the amount of exposed hair and skin is none of our business. It is entirely up to them if they want to wear shorts and show their cleavages. If the sight of skimpily-dressed women is too distracting for you, just simply avert your gaze! Your problem, not theirs!
And the same thing can be said about hijab.
Unless the women are involved in activities where covering up can possibly result in bodily injuries, the amount of covered hair and skin is also none of our business! It is up to them if they prefer to cover their hair and skin. If the sight of ‘modest’ fashion is too distracting for you, just simply avert your gaze! Once again, your problem, not theirs!
There is a frequently-touted rhetoric that hijab is inherently oppressive which means literally every hijabi is an oppressed, rescue-worthy woman and banning the garb is the only mean to do so. This so-called expression of feminism champion women’s rights to wear anything they want… by taking their right to wear anything they want.
Such rhetoric is often divulged either by westerners or Uncle Toms who romanticise the west. I have never heard it being embraced by my fellow Indonesians and, frankly, I am not surprised. Unlike westerners who champion oppression of women under the pretense of feminism, Indonesians never bother to do so.
Heck, they even never bother utilising the anti-extremism pretense. Indonesians, including the ones who identify as moderate Muslims, are very open about their misogyny. They are proud of their endeavours of championing subservience among housewives and holding women to higher standards of sexual mores than men… and they are certainly proud of their shaming of women who cover up and refuse to fulfil the ‘traditional’ dress codes.
No, I don’t think Indonesian moderate Muslims are as bad as the extremists; the former certainly have stricter morals than the latter. Between those two factions, taking sides would not be much of a dilemma. But, both still have some things in common with each other and anti-feminist approach to life is certainly one of them. They are holding the country back from becoming more civilised.
To summarise my rambling…
Using Arabisation to justify one’s anti-hijab sentiment is uneducated, prejudiced and misogynistic.
Uneducated because it falsely thinks humans live in vacuums and pretends that intercultural interactions is a recent human phenomenon.
Prejudiced because it is an excuse to dehumanise the ‘others’.
Misogynistic because it is used to shame women for refusing to dress ‘traditionally’ and preferring to dress like ‘foreigners’.
You geniuses will never be the ones who defeat extremism and you certainly will never be the ones who advance women’s rights.

Kirsty Wark, Sonam Kapoor and Liz Johnson to host third series of Jamavar's Women's Club

Reviews, recipes and a feast of flavours ES FOOD newsletter Reviews, recipes and a feast of flavours Enter your email address Continue Please enter an email address Email address is invalid Fill out this field Email address is invalid You already have an account. Please log in .
Register with your social account or click here to log in I would like to receive the latest restaurant reviews, recipes and food trend every week, by email Update newsletter preferences Jamavar will kick off its third annual Women’s Club series at the end of this month, with special guests including BBC broadcaster Kirsty Wark, Bollywood actress Sonam Kapoor and gold medal-winning Paralympian Liz Johnson. Throughout the summer, the Mayfair Indian restaurant will run a series of dinners in its subterranean bar, each centred on talks by influential women in media and sport. Launched by co-founder Samyukta Nair, the events are designed to be a contrast to the male-dominated clubs that have populated Mayfair throughout its history. Men are welcome to attend the events, but only as the guest of a female ticket holder. “It is important to me to demonstrate that by sharing stories of our failures, our successes and all the things that happen in between, we learn from each other,” said Nair. “We can’t wait to get things started again and, of course, as we all know, all good conversations take place around the dinner table.” Nine inspirational women give their advice for budding young chefs The inaugural event will take place on July 29, hosted by BAFTA-winning Newsnight presenter Kirsty Wark, who has presented the BBC news show for 26 years. This will be followed by evenings hosted by Sonam Kapoor, the acclaimed Bollywood actress (August 5), and an evening with Liz Johnson, the three-time World Champion swimmer who won gold at the Beijing Paralympics in 2008 (August 12). Following a glass of Laurent Perrier champagne and canapes to accompany the talks, guests will be served a three-course meal designed by Jamavar chef Surender Mohan. Menu choices include Tellichery pepper and garlic soft shell crab, bhatti ka paneer with mint chutney and murgh aloo.
Tickets cost £55 per person, including dinner. Jamavar Women’s Club runs from July 29 – August 12 at 8 Mount Street, Mayfair, W1K 3NF. For more information, visit jamavarrestaurants.com The best Indian restaurants in London 19 show all The best Indian restaurants in London 1/19 Hoppers There’s a reason this place still has hour-long waits on for tables on a daily basis, and its not slow service. This beautiful little restaurant offers delicious Sri Lankan street food at extremely affordable prices, with favourites including the mutton rolls and bone marrow varuval alongside the marinated tamarind and ginger chicken wings – all of which are available on the set menu for £30 per person. The star of the show at this Soho spot is the dish the restaurant is named for – the egg hopper – a fried bowl-shaped beauty made with fermented rice and coconut milk, with a perfectly contained yolk in the middle. Once again, the Sethi family (the group behind Bubbledogs, Gymkhana and Trishna) prove they’re an unstoppable force leading London’s Indian restaurant revolution. 2/19 Bombay Bustle Step inside Bombay Bustle and you’ll be transported to a colonial-era railway carriage – first class, naturally. Inspired by the Dabbawalas of Mumbai – men who traditionally travelled across the city by train to deliver home-cooked meals – Bombay Bustle captures the essence of a rich and vast culinary tradition. Follow the station-style signage to navigate between the bar and dining areas and take a seat in one of the coach-style booths. There you’ll tuck in to some of Mumbai’s most celebrated dishes: opt for the small plates and share as many as you can. Top picks include the rarah keema pao, a richly spiced lamb mince served with a buttered bun, and the masala akuri – spiced scrambled eggs gleaming atop a truffled naan. Save room for the tandoor dishes: the cardamom-spiced murgh malai chicken is a triumph. 3/19 Indian Accent Despite decidedly unassuming appearances – it really just looks like another faintly dull spot for bored Mayfair types – this is an extraordinary place, turning out gorgeous, intensely flavoured plates of food. The first signs of genius come early on, with the tiny bite of blue cheese-filled naan (we asked for a second plate), which are remarkably memorable and impossible to over recommend. The place is full of food that manages to be both earthy and elegant at the same time, at times dazzlingly inventive, other moments reliably comfortable. Portions are small, service is friendly if fussy, but by God the food is delicious. Even their puddings are exceptional and their brunch is likely the most interesting in London. Neither of these things is usual for an Indian restaurant – but then Indian Accent isn’t usual; it goes beyond than that. A delight. 4/19 Jamavar Mayfair’s Jamavar is another that proves that Indian fine dining in the capital is fiercely good. Much like its contemporaries, the venue has a colonial gentlemen’s club feel to it and offers delicately-spiced plates that pack a punch. Highlights include the juicy scallops Bhel with a tamarind and date chutney and the slow cooked Jamavar dal with black lentils. Familiar favourites can be found on the menu too, like the moreish old Delhi butter chicken. 5/19 Cinnamon Bazaar There’s a reason Vivek Singh is one of the capital’s most celebrated Indian chefs and the proof is in the pudding. Everything here from food to decor is built to resemble the vibrancy and energy of ancient and modern bazaars located along old trading routes. Something that follows through in the food, which fuses both east and west with dishes such as a lamb roganjosh shepherd’s pie and Vindaloo of ox cheek with masala mash. 6/19 Dishoom Dishoom is rightly regarded a staple of London life, even though just eight years have passed since its first Bombay Cafe opened in Covent Garden. The group’s monopoly of the casual, quality dining scene spans five London branches and another two in Edinburgh and Manchester. Be sure to try the mahi tikka (grilled, marinated fish) and okra fries as part of a sharing-plate meal. Meanwhile the chole poori (puffed, fried bread with chickpea curry) makes a cheap and hearty lunch for one. The real standouts are the black daal and the breakfast bacon naan, both of which have achieved legendary status and have the lamb chops too, which deserve to be similarly revered. Dishoom 7/19 Darjeeling Express This place has come a long way since serving Indian food to 12 supper club guests in Wood Green. Six years on, the location may have changed – they now boast a permanent site in Kingly Court – but the food is as good as ever. None of the team are trained chefs, instead all being amateurs-turned-professionals who learned to cook perfecting long-standing family recipes. This eccentricity might just be why it all works as well as it does. Chef patron Asma Khan’s ever-changing menu has a homely feel to it but no means is lacking in finesse: the Calcutta-Hyderabad-Rajput cooking is all boldly spiced, vigorously flavoured and served in generous portions. It is a bold, lively place where it’s fun to drink up and tuck in. There are stories here; fortunately, you can still book up to hear them. Hear them first hand before next year, when Khan becomes the first British chef to appear on Netflix’s Chef’s Table. Daniel Hambury/Stella Pictures 8/19 Quilon Another star of the capital’s Indian food scene. Chef Sriram Aylur shows consistency is forte as the food is vibrant and delicate with a home-style to it. Standout dishes include their signature fish curry with tender halibut and a creamy-with-a-kick coconut and chilli sauce, as well as the perfectly spiced Mangalorean chicken. 9/19 Cinnamon Kitchen Battersea The Cinnamon Club’s younger, laid back sister offers an alternative set up to its fine dining sibling. The restaurant is the baby of the family and much like its sister branches, chef Vivek Singh has worked wonders with its vibrant menus. The dinner offering is on the meatier side, with a hearty selection of grilled meats and dishes such as the clove-smoked lamb ramp and the fiery rump steak with masala chips. There’s also a plethora of breads to mop up any excess sauce, including four different types of naan; plain, garlic, peshwari and a chicken tikka and cheese. 10/19 Jikoni Granted, this spot isn’t just an Indian restaurant. It specialises in flavours from other parts of Asia too, offering twists on traditional poppadoms and bhajis, but largely boasts a variety of Indian-inspired triumphs. Small plates include the clove-smoked venison samosas with beetroot chutney and larger plates deliver too, like the mutton keema, which is sandwiched between two toasted brioches to form a wildly indulgent Sloppy Joe. Much like the food, the decor is comforting, with mismatched tablecloths and cushions, giving it a relaxed, homely feel. 11/19 Gunpowder Husband and wife team Harneet and Devina Baweja opened this spot back in November 2015 with the help of Mumbai-born head chef Nirmal Save, formerly of Tamarind and Zaika. Nearly three years on and there’s no stopping them: not only did the team launch a cookbook earlier this year but Gunpowder was recognised by Michelin with a Bib Gourmand in 2018, which it retained at the 2019 awards. The the menu offers rich, well-executed, belt-loosening plates that will leave you feeling wholly satisfied and wanting to do it over again. Standout dishes include the charred lamb chops and the chettinad pulled duck. 12/19 Benares “No Indian restaurant in London enjoys a more commanding location or expansive interior,” said the Michelin Guide’s 2019 inspectors, as the place held onto its star for the twelfth year in a row. Expansive, perhaps, but Bernares doesn’t look especially ravishing either inside or out. Still, its polished interior can house up to 300 guests and encompasses four private dining rooms, bar, a main dining room and a lounge, where guests are greeted by a pool of floating flowers. Food here is an inventive blend of quality British ingredients, traditional Indian recipes and contemporary techniques. 13/19 Trishna Unlike some of its competitors, which tend to have a more meaty focus, Trishna celebrates the coastal cuisine of southwest India. The food on the menu pays close attention to coconut and tamarind, and accordingly dishes are fragrant without being overpowering, though they’re brazen with the spice – expect to have your socks very soundly blown off. The tandoor offers a selection of seafood from charred scallops to salmon tikka. 14/19 Gymkhana Gone are the days when Indian restaurants were stereotyped as budget-friendly, BYOB haunts. The capital’s Indian fine dining scene is booming and Mayfair’s Gymkhana is a testament to that. It’s hardly a surprise too, considering the Trishna and Hoppers team are behind it. The venue pays homage to colonial India’s gymkhana clubs – spaces where members of high society would socialise, dine, drink and play sport. Menus here capture the intensity and depth of flavour that north Indian cuisine has to offer, with dishes such as the guinea fowl Tikka and wild muntjac biryani. Bold flavours are the name of the game here, but classics like the chicken butter masala are still on the menu and do not disappoint. No wonder this place has kept its Michelin star four years in a row. 15/19 Kricket It’s always nice to see a pop-up given a permanent site. It’s even nicer to see a former pop-up given a permanent site and then get the recognition it deserves. From humble beginnings of a shipping container in Brixton to retaining its Bib Gourmand twice in a row, Kricket has come a long way and picked up plenty of fans in the process. Its menu is often updated but it remains all about small, seasonal sharing plates and India-inspired cocktails. That said, there are some regulars – the bhel puri and samphire pakora are going nowhere, neither is the keralan fried chicken, all with good reason. The bar serves a rotation of six cocktails, all of which feature delicate, oriental spices; anything with spiced jaggery syrup or darjeeling Bourbon is going to be a hit. 16/19 Brigadiers Inspired by the army mess bars of India, this up-market Indian barbecue joint draws a crowd with its range of entertainment, beers on tap, sports screenings and, most importantly, its small plates. Once you’ve finished playing pool in its art-deco “social hub”, or downed your last pint in the Tap Room tavern, sit down in Brigadiers’ dining room to pour over its extensive menu – their are 16 sides alone. Grill-lovers should try the sikandari kid goat shoulder and the BBQ chicken wings, while those looking for something lighter will enjoy the delicately spiced Indo Chinese chicken lettuce cups. There are plenty of well-crafted vegetarian options, too, such as the gently charred wood fired mushroom methi malai naan and the smoked aubergine missi rotis. If a restaurant can attract crowds to Bank on a weekend, it must be doing something right. Matt Writtle 17/19 Masala Zone Sisters Camellia and Namita Panjabi have decades of research behind them, which rubs off on their authentic food. The menus boast a selection of Indian all-stars from grills, tandoors and curries to vibrant street food. The paneer tikka made with fresh fenugreek leaves and yellow chilli proves that veggie curries can be just as flavoursome and rich as their meaty counterparts. Likewise, the familiar korma gets an upgrade, with saffron infused into it. The thalis, however, are the stars of the show here — various small dishes are served on a circular tray, creating a colourful platter of vegetables, dal, chapati, rice, salad and pickles. With seven different branches across the capital, each site has its own identity and brings something different to the table. The Covent Garden restaurant has puppets hanging from the ceiling while the Bayswater branch has eye-catching graphics plastered over the central dining room pillars. 18/19 Indian Zing This longstanding favourite in Hammersmith offers modern, dynamic Indian food. It’s another fine-dining spot that’s popular with locals and celebs alike (even the late Michael Winner was a fan). A real knowledge of India’s regional cooking shines through at this place, thanks to Mumbai-born chef-patron Manoj Vasaikar. The chicken shatkora lives up to the restaurant’s name with herbs and spices balanced by a punch of zesty citrus, and the lamb dhansak, a speciality of the Mumbai Parsi community, combines traditional flavours with seasonal produce. This restaurant packs out on a regular basis, but the service always remains calm and attentive — the sign of a true gem. 19/19 Chakra This little known Kensington spot is all too often overlooked in lists like these. It’s a fabulous neighbourhood place and appropriately upmarket for Kensington, tucked away opposite the excellent Elephant & Castle. They’ve recently refurbished but the real draw is the terrace space; sit out and tuck into their delicious little bites. It’s the sort of place to order a few glasses of wine while tucking into the likes of truffle Kulcha (addictive bites of wild mushroom & black truffle naan) or monk fish marinated beautifully with kasundi mustard paste. The Lucknowi lamb kebab is a must too. Service is the quiet, friendly type. David Clack 1/19 Hoppers There’s a reason this place still has hour-long waits on for tables on a daily basis, and its not slow service. This beautiful little restaurant offers delicious Sri Lankan street food at extremely affordable prices, with favourites including the mutton rolls and bone marrow varuval alongside the marinated tamarind and ginger chicken wings – all of which are available on the set menu for £30 per person. The star of the show at this Soho spot is the dish the restaurant is named for – the egg hopper – a fried bowl-shaped beauty made with fermented rice and coconut milk, with a perfectly contained yolk in the middle. Once again, the Sethi family (the group behind Bubbledogs, Gymkhana and Trishna) prove they’re an unstoppable force leading London’s Indian restaurant revolution. 2/19 Bombay Bustle Step inside Bombay Bustle and you’ll be transported to a colonial-era railway carriage – first class, naturally. Inspired by the Dabbawalas of Mumbai – men who traditionally travelled across the city by train to deliver home-cooked meals – Bombay Bustle captures the essence of a rich and vast culinary tradition. Follow the station-style signage to navigate between the bar and dining areas and take a seat in one of the coach-style booths. There you’ll tuck in to some of Mumbai’s most celebrated dishes: opt for the small plates and share as many as you can. Top picks include the rarah keema pao, a richly spiced lamb mince served with a buttered bun, and the masala akuri – spiced scrambled eggs gleaming atop a truffled naan. Save room for the tandoor dishes: the cardamom-spiced murgh malai chicken is a triumph. 3/19 Indian Accent Despite decidedly unassuming appearances – it really just looks like another faintly dull spot for bored Mayfair types – this is an extraordinary place, turning out gorgeous, intensely flavoured plates of food. The first signs of genius come early on, with the tiny bite of blue cheese-filled naan (we asked for a second plate), which are remarkably memorable and impossible to over recommend. The place is full of food that manages to be both earthy and elegant at the same time, at times dazzlingly inventive, other moments reliably comfortable. Portions are small, service is friendly if fussy, but by God the food is delicious. Even their puddings are exceptional and their brunch is likely the most interesting in London. Neither of these things is usual for an Indian restaurant – but then Indian Accent isn’t usual; it goes beyond than that. A delight. 4/19 Jamavar Mayfair’s Jamavar is another that proves that Indian fine dining in the capital is fiercely good. Much like its contemporaries, the venue has a colonial gentlemen’s club feel to it and offers delicately-spiced plates that pack a punch. Highlights include the juicy scallops Bhel with a tamarind and date chutney and the slow cooked Jamavar dal with black lentils. Familiar favourites can be found on the menu too, like the moreish old Delhi butter chicken. 5/19 Cinnamon Bazaar There’s a reason Vivek Singh is one of the capital’s most celebrated Indian chefs and the proof is in the pudding. Everything here from food to decor is built to resemble the vibrancy and energy of ancient and modern bazaars located along old trading routes. Something that follows through in the food, which fuses both east and west with dishes such as a lamb roganjosh shepherd’s pie and Vindaloo of ox cheek with masala mash. 6/19 Dishoom Dishoom is rightly regarded a staple of London life, even though just eight years have passed since its first Bombay Cafe opened in Covent Garden. The group’s monopoly of the casual, quality dining scene spans five London branches and another two in Edinburgh and Manchester. Be sure to try the mahi tikka (grilled, marinated fish) and okra fries as part of a sharing-plate meal. Meanwhile the chole poori (puffed, fried bread with chickpea curry) makes a cheap and hearty lunch for one. The real standouts are the black daal and the breakfast bacon naan, both of which have achieved legendary status and have the lamb chops too, which deserve to be similarly revered. Dishoom 7/19 Darjeeling Express This place has come a long way since serving Indian food to 12 supper club guests in Wood Green. Six years on, the location may have changed – they now boast a permanent site in Kingly Court – but the food is as good as ever. None of the team are trained chefs, instead all being amateurs-turned-professionals who learned to cook perfecting long-standing family recipes. This eccentricity might just be why it all works as well as it does. Chef patron Asma Khan’s ever-changing menu has a homely feel to it but no means is lacking in finesse: the Calcutta-Hyderabad-Rajput cooking is all boldly spiced, vigorously flavoured and served in generous portions. It is a bold, lively place where it’s fun to drink up and tuck in. There are stories here; fortunately, you can still book up to hear them. Hear them first hand before next year, when Khan becomes the first British chef to appear on Netflix’s Chef’s Table. Daniel Hambury/Stella Pictures 8/19 Quilon Another star of the capital’s Indian food scene. Chef Sriram Aylur shows consistency is forte as the food is vibrant and delicate with a home-style to it. Standout dishes include their signature fish curry with tender halibut and a creamy-with-a-kick coconut and chilli sauce, as well as the perfectly spiced Mangalorean chicken. 9/19 Cinnamon Kitchen Battersea The Cinnamon Club’s younger, laid back sister offers an alternative set up to its fine dining sibling. The restaurant is the baby of the family and much like its sister branches, chef Vivek Singh has worked wonders with its vibrant menus. The dinner offering is on the meatier side, with a hearty selection of grilled meats and dishes such as the clove-smoked lamb ramp and the fiery rump steak with masala chips. There’s also a plethora of breads to mop up any excess sauce, including four different types of naan; plain, garlic, peshwari and a chicken tikka and cheese. 10/19 Jikoni Granted, this spot isn’t just an Indian restaurant. It specialises in flavours from other parts of Asia too, offering twists on traditional poppadoms and bhajis, but largely boasts a variety of Indian-inspired triumphs. Small plates include the clove-smoked venison samosas with beetroot chutney and larger plates deliver too, like the mutton keema, which is sandwiched between two toasted brioches to form a wildly indulgent Sloppy Joe. Much like the food, the decor is comforting, with mismatched tablecloths and cushions, giving it a relaxed, homely feel. 11/19 Gunpowder Husband and wife team Harneet and Devina Baweja opened this spot back in November 2015 with the help of Mumbai-born head chef Nirmal Save, formerly of Tamarind and Zaika. Nearly three years on and there’s no stopping them: not only did the team launch a cookbook earlier this year but Gunpowder was recognised by Michelin with a Bib Gourmand in 2018, which it retained at the 2019 awards. The the menu offers rich, well-executed, belt-loosening plates that will leave you feeling wholly satisfied and wanting to do it over again. Standout dishes include the charred lamb chops and the chettinad pulled duck. 12/19 Benares “No Indian restaurant in London enjoys a more commanding location or expansive interior,” said the Michelin Guide’s 2019 inspectors, as the place held onto its star for the twelfth year in a row. Expansive, perhaps, but Bernares doesn’t look especially ravishing either inside or out. Still, its polished interior can house up to 300 guests and encompasses four private dining rooms, bar, a main dining room and a lounge, where guests are greeted by a pool of floating flowers. Food here is an inventive blend of quality British ingredients, traditional Indian recipes and contemporary techniques. 13/19 Trishna Unlike some of its competitors, which tend to have a more meaty focus, Trishna celebrates the coastal cuisine of southwest India. The food on the menu pays close attention to coconut and tamarind, and accordingly dishes are fragrant without being overpowering, though they’re brazen with the spice – expect to have your socks very soundly blown off. The tandoor offers a selection of seafood from charred scallops to salmon tikka. 14/19 Gymkhana Gone are the days when Indian restaurants were stereotyped as budget-friendly, BYOB haunts. The capital’s Indian fine dining scene is booming and Mayfair’s Gymkhana is a testament to that. It’s hardly a surprise too, considering the Trishna and Hoppers team are behind it. The venue pays homage to colonial India’s gymkhana clubs – spaces where members of high society would socialise, dine, drink and play sport. Menus here capture the intensity and depth of flavour that north Indian cuisine has to offer, with dishes such as the guinea fowl Tikka and wild muntjac biryani. Bold flavours are the name of the game here, but classics like the chicken butter masala are still on the menu and do not disappoint. No wonder this place has kept its Michelin star four years in a row. 15/19 Kricket It’s always nice to see a pop-up given a permanent site. It’s even nicer to see a former pop-up given a permanent site and then get the recognition it deserves. From humble beginnings of a shipping container in Brixton to retaining its Bib Gourmand twice in a row, Kricket has come a long way and picked up plenty of fans in the process. Its menu is often updated but it remains all about small, seasonal sharing plates and India-inspired cocktails. That said, there are some regulars – the bhel puri and samphire pakora are going nowhere, neither is the keralan fried chicken, all with good reason. The bar serves a rotation of six cocktails, all of which feature delicate, oriental spices; anything with spiced jaggery syrup or darjeeling Bourbon is going to be a hit. 16/19 Brigadiers Inspired by the army mess bars of India, this up-market Indian barbecue joint draws a crowd with its range of entertainment, beers on tap, sports screenings and, most importantly, its small plates. Once you’ve finished playing pool in its art-deco “social hub”, or downed your last pint in the Tap Room tavern, sit down in Brigadiers’ dining room to pour over its extensive menu – their are 16 sides alone. Grill-lovers should try the sikandari kid goat shoulder and the BBQ chicken wings, while those looking for something lighter will enjoy the delicately spiced Indo Chinese chicken lettuce cups. There are plenty of well-crafted vegetarian options, too, such as the gently charred wood fired mushroom methi malai naan and the smoked aubergine missi rotis.

Making America Great Again: Small Business Loans Provide Financial Interdependence

Thirteen colonies, now called the United States of America, got liberated from Great Britain in 1776. So, what does the 4th of July signify? America is a free country; people from a different race, color, religion, and sexuality are welcome! America is a home for immigrants and minorities. Although over the past years, minorities and immigrants are facing a backlash from the authorities, as authorities accuse them of hogging jobs. As a rebuttal, research by the American Civil Liberties Union revealed that immigrants pay $90 billion, approximately, in the taxes. Without these numbers, America’s economy will suffer a tremendous loss. Most of these immigrants are running side small businesses. Although the idea behind the slogan ‘Make America great again’ used by Reagan, Clinton, Bush, and Trump is to appreciate the diversity and encourage individualism, small business owners, especially minorities and women face discrimination, daily. In order to provide equal financial opportunities, independence, and interdependence, Merchant Advisors provides small business loans .
Small business entrepreneurs have freedom!
Not everyone dreams of working with or under the supervision of someone else; some want to pave their own journey. For an individualist like them, it is better to offer them financial aid so that they can contribute to the economy by working on their dreams. Running a new business and personal business gifts owners the opportunity to create new jobs – something to be proud of! You can save yourself from the classic office behavior and politics by not working for someone but then you have to make sure that your employees are thriving in the same environment. With freedom, comes a great deal of responsibilities.
In addition to this, to integrate the true meaning of independence. One has to remember that minorities are a part of the small business industry and are prone to face financial challenges as well. Research shows, lending institutions are prejudiced against minority and women business owners. They demand more financial documents and have rigid selection criteria. But with small business loans from Merchant Advisors and plenty of other lending institutions funds are easily accessible for all! They are offering funds so that everyone has an equal chance to prosper. Moreover, this will encourage the owners to incorporate every diverse idea for the benefit of their business.
Get into the spirit of 4th of July with the help of small business loans! Glam up your product or services!
Each year, on the 4th of July Americans spend approximately $3 billion on fireworks, firecrackers, food, custom-made outfits, and much more. This dictates their patriotism and loyalty towards their country. So, if you are running a retail store, stock up on inventory and offer new, customized and themed products to your customers. Order some custom made bandanas and t-shirts. If you sell automobiles, you can run an entire campaign on ‘switching to hybrids to save the environment.’ One can be trendy and novel with the restaurant menu as well. You can bake customized American theme cakes and delicacies or market American cuisine.
All of this required prior preparation, you can easily make that happen by applying for a working capital line of credit. With revolving credit, you will have access to money to purchase shirts, pay your campaign manager, and by baking and cooking ingredients. So, take benefit from the loans and give customers what they need! Treat your employees.
As one of the core values of the Independence is to give value to people where it is due so, treat your employees on this special occasion and give them bonuses, or plan out a party for them. Take aid from a working capital loan to cover the expenses of decoration, food, bonuses. Appreciate the hard work of your employees and show them that they are the core asset of your company. Start a side business.
As many independence parades are planned on this occasion and the majority of Americans love to participate so you can offer an online platform where one can find all the information regarding events, parades, seminar, food, and most importantly, fireworks. Obviously, you have to plan all of this beforehand, use some of the cash from the line of credit and get an extra set of hands to execute this plan. Be extra!
This independence day, spend some good amount of money and be extra! If you run a salon, give discount offers on independence theme nail art and hair dye. In addition to this, if you are running a retail store, then pull out a basket of free chain and candies; put a smile on people’s face. You can offer a discount on food and delivery services as well, send out a promo to people and secure the golden chance to market your product.
Now that with the help of small business loans the money problem is taken care of so, be creative and apply all of these tips. Furthermore, these tips and small business loans are not only confined to the majority.
