OPENS JULY 2018
The rapid expansion of the Gunpowder restaurant group continues apace with this fourth site at the One Tower Bridge development, which houses both Custard (an Indian bakery) and the sequel to the original Gunpowder in Spitalfields. Inspired by the old coffee houses of Kolkata, Custard specialises in savouries, pastries and sandwiches from across India. It opens from 8am daily, serving an array of enticing snacks including butter-chicken puffs, Goan pork sausage rolls, and mutton and egg sandwiches – all available to eat in or take away. Sweet-toothed diners can enjoy pastries alongside their morning coffee, with sweet treats such as almond, cherry and ghee cake. Come evening, the bakery space converts to a wine bar, turning out cheese toasties and other bar snacks to soak up the alcohol.
