Anise Steps Up To The Plate With A Menu Inspired By The Event-That-Cannot-Be-Named
Anise – Cinnamon Kitchen’s chic cocktail bar – isn’t one to jump on the PR bandwagon; it’s purely coincidence that its marathon of a menu is made up of five multi-coloured dishes accompanied by five flaming, torch cocktails. Winning plates include the blue shrikhand cheesecake with berries (£3.50); the yellow dahi bhalla with chaat (£4); the black port baby back ribs (£5); the green tandoori chicken green spices (£4.50); and the red chilli paneer (£4.50). Forget bronze and silver: head chef Abdul Yaseen has struck gold with these gourmet offerings – though again, nothing to do with Stratford shenanigans.
For sustenance of the liquid variety, a martini menu of similarly
colourful cocktails provides fuel for the fire at just £9.50 each. Prop
up the bar with the Ocean Blue; the Hot Passion; the Black Temple; the
Playmate; and the Velvet & Silk. Energising and exciting, they’re
potent pick-me-ups that pack a heavyweight punch.
And with everything served just a hop, skip and a jump from the
sporting site everyone seems to be talking about, Anise is the perfect
place to recharge and refuel when the day is done and you’ve crossed the
So indulge in a plate or two, knock back a cocktail or three and kick
off the running shoes. Victory is yours at Anise – just don’t draw
parallels between this offering and the event-that-cannot-be-named.
