British India Trading Co

Inspired by Matt (a Michelin trained Chef) and his journeys through the Indian subcontinent, he and his lovely lady Alana have created an amazing new concept that marries Traditional Indian with colonial Britain. The combination of the two is a truly an innovative concept and it leaves wondering why the it is so under-represented in the culinary world.

They have been given an amazing opportunity through Iconpark – a brand new hospitality crowdfunding venture. Two investors have bought the building at 78 Stanley St in Darlinghurst in Sydney and are in the process of turning it into a three level venue. They asked people to submit ideas for a restaurant/bar concept to open there and have created a competitive crowdfunding venture out of it.

The top 6 teams will exhibit at Taste of Sydney next weekend and will also need to compete to raise the most money via their crowdfunding platform. After 3 weeks of crowdfunding the winner will get to open their concept in the venue for 3 months. British India Trading Co was announced last week as one of the 6 finalists and deservedly so!

I was lucky to be invited to a showcase of some of their sumptuous selection, incorporating Indian and British twists on classic high tea pastries. This was their menu for the occasion.
