Launching on Mon 6 Nov, Zouk Tea Bar & Grill’s beloved lunchtime Tiffin menu will be available for e-trike delivery around Manchester city centre as a nod to Mumbai’s historic urban culinary culture.

Since the 1890s, lunchtime tiffin delivery has been a cornerstone of Mumbai’s unique culture, with city-wide cycling box collectors – dabbawallas – picking up tin towers of steaming, sumptuous home-cooked food and delivering them to workplaces every day around the area. In Manchester, Zouk’s sustainable riders will initially deliver within a one-mile radius of the restaurant during the week, and true to Mumbai’s long-standing tiffin service, the riders will then collect the tiffin tins between 4pm and 6pm and return them to the restaurant to be washed and reused the next day.

Options throughout the week include Butter Chicken, Lamb Karahi, Dall Makhani, Palak Aloo and many more.
