Indian Street Food and Craft Beer. Some things just work together; kind of like German food and cold lagers in the last sunny days of September. This Oktoberfest Bundobust are dusting off their Lederhosen and shaking the spice rack over a range of German classic dishes alongside brewing some world class beers to pair with them.

Available exclusively in Bundobust venues – Leeds, Manchester Piccadilly, Bundobust Brewery, Liverpool and Birmingham – the limited edition dishes will be available from Friday 15th September until Sunday 15th October.



First up we have the return of the iconic Bundo Pretzel (£4.50), this year available in all Bundo sites. This collaboration with esteemed Bolton-based Bavarian bakery, Pretzel & Spelt, sees the handmade pretzels spiced with garam massala and turmeric, flecked with ajwain seeds, black salt and mango powder. Served with currywurst dip and house pickles, and pairs perfectly with a Bundobar! black lager whilst a group is perusing the rest of the pots on offer.

Bundobust chefs tackle the German institution of currywurst with Currywurst Koftas (£7.50). Desi dumplings of cauliflower, cabbage and carrot are served with a classic currywurst sauce charged with garam masala and a dusting of curry powder.

Another twist on German tradition comes in the form of Moong & Sauerkraut Fritters (£5.50). Fried ground lentil, gherkin and sauerkraut dumplings spiced with parsley, caraway, chilli and ginger. Served with a sweet cinnamon and jaggery apple sauce dip.

Fresh crunch comes in the form of Prost Pickles (£4) offering a medley of heritage carrot, mooli radish, turnip and cauliflower pickled with mustard, chilli, dill and peppercorns. These are perfectly complimented by Bundobust’s Bataka Salat (£5.50) – a German-Indian potato salad. Purple and new potatoes combined with dill, curried sour cream, tamarind chutney and crunchy samosa pastry.

For those who can’t decide what to order, Bundobust have curated an Oktoberfest Comobo for 2 (£35), featuring four of the above dishes (grab your Pretzel with your drinks while you’re deciding) alongside the iconic Okra Fries and Chole Saag.



Traditionally Oktoberfest is all about the beer with the six designated breweries in Munich brewing official beers for the festival. Bundobust’s head brewer, Dan Hocking, looked to his Bavarian counterparts when planning Bundobust Brewery’s offering for their festival. Bundobar! is a German style Schwarzbier, or Black Lager, showcasing heritage Munich and Vienna Malts. It’s deep roasted flavour playfully tempers the spices from the kitchen, with the smooth lager conditioning creating a beer that is both complex and refreshing.

Bundobust Brewery have also visited British lager heavyweights, Braybrooke, to brew a collaboration Pilsner for the festival. Night Market Pils epitomises what the two brewers look for in German beer styles – clarity of flavour, a crisp pallet, and ultimate refreshment.

The Bundobust fridges will also be filled with a selection of German beers, from staff favourites Tegenseer Helles to official Oktoberfest beers from Munich.

For those who aren’t looking for a beer Bundobust have sourced Fritz Willi – a deliciously irreverent modern Riesling which pairs perfectly with their German inspired pots. And the Oktoberfest spirit will be out in true force when guests try Bundo Schnapps – a spiced Apple & Mango nod to the German post dinner drink. Prost!

Bundobust venues are warmly welcoming to all – walk-ins are always welcome, but bookings can be made at: https://bundobust.com/ . The restaurants are open all-day, from 12 noon, seven days a week.

The Oktoberfest specials will be available between Friday 15th September and Sunday 15th October exclusively in Bundobust venues.
