Master of Spices – Chef Atul Kochhar celebrates India’s Street Food culture with new opening: Masalchi in Wembley Park

October 2021 – Twice Michelin-starred chef Atul Kochhar is opening his latest restaurant in the globally renowned entertainment district and 365-day neighbourhood of Wembley Park.  Masalchi, an Indian word broadly meaning ‘the spice master or spice blender’, is set to open 25th October and takes pride of place on Wembley Park Boulevard, located between the iconic Wembley Stadium and The SSE Arena, Wembley.

Masalchi celebrates the exotic abundance of India’s spices in a rustic, yet relaxed and sociable setting. Masalchi will open seven days a week with a Pan-Indian menu of dishes based on street food that Atul Kochhar discovered at provincial markets during his back-street travels in India with family, friends and peers.

Atul Kochhar commented: “The energy and vibrancy of Wembley Park makes it one of the most exciting places in London right now. Opening Masalchi in this sporting, entertainment, shopping and dining destination makes a lot of sense and will be a thrilling next chapter for my hospitality group.”

With capacity for 120 guests, Masalchi’s cuisine is hearty yet simple, offering colourful and flavoursome dishes including a selection of fragrant curries, juicy grills, satisfying half-plates and creamy Handi, Masala and Kalia dishes.

Menu highlights include grills such as Lahori Chaapen (Rustic lamb chops from the street markets of Lahore) to Phalwala Paneer Tikka (grilled paneer, starfruit and apple tikka).  Half plates feature a Bun Kebab (lamb keema patties with mint chutnet and onions) Ambasari Jhinga (spicy and crisp prawns with ajwain, lemon, chilli and onion) and Chakunder Chaap (beetroot and pine nuts croquettes with kuchumber salad)

Masalchi’s colourful and flavourful Handi, Masala anmd Kalia dishes include the likes of Paneer Kulcha Cholle (baked paneer bread with spiced chickpeas) and Chicken Makhan Palak (classic butter chicken with spinach).

Working in partnership with interior design and brand specialists, CADA Design, the open, light space at Masalchi invites diners to a thoughtful, bold interior that will add to the ambience and experience of visiting this exciting new restaurant.

Masalchi, Wembley Park is an exciting new concept to join the neighbourhood’s growing dining offer.
