Indian street food restaurant Indico to open in the Mailbox

Last updated on

Shirley’s beloved Indico is set to open its second restaurant this Autumn, bringing a taste of authentic Indian street food to prestigious canalside venue The Mailbox.

From the chaats of Chennai to Punjabi Fish Pakora, for the last 3 years Indico have been showcasing the best and tastiest dishes of Indian street food culture from their flagship store in Stirchley. And now the Mailbox will be adding it to its impressive and diverse array of culinary options – right opposite the esteemed Bar Estilo.

The prestigious canalside venue has for a long time been host to the finest bars and eateries in Birmingham, and Indico will fit in seamlessly among its esteemed neighbours: “We’re proud to be opening our next eatery in such an established and iconic city centre location,” said Faheem Badur, owner of Indico.

The menu features food staples including chaats and curries that are cooked fresh daily; it also has an extensive vegetarian and lunch options and a dedicated vegan menu.  And if it’s going to be anything like its Shirley counterpart, you can be sure the interior will be the boldest and brightest on the block, with its colour scheme reflecting the vibrancy of Indian culture.

The menu boasts a fabulous selection of authentic fineries, including Dhaba curries (‘Dhaba’ meaning a roadside restaurant in India), and Kathi rolls. And be sure to try a Thali (the Indian name for a round platter used to serve food made up of a selection of various dishes), where you can can sample spicy battered cod tossed in fiery sweet and sour chili sauce; or dal makhani from North India. One thing is for sure – you will not be short of options.

Indico follows a raft of new store launches at the Mailbox this summer, including Castle Fine Art’s flagship showroom, Sofas & Stuff, luxury women’s fashion brand, Jakes Lakeland, and Pall Mall Barbers.
