South Asian Roasts Beef for British

This Bangladeshi has a right to boast of his Roast:
It's the Most !

Who said Fish and Chips is a joke?
asks owner of new restaurant
London, Oct. 23: This might come across as a little cheeky
but a South Asian, Iqbal Wahhab, 41, has just opened a
new restaurant called Roast in southeast London with the
aim of educating the British that their food does not
deserve to be the butt of jokes.

Wahhab, a Bangladeshi who is best known for running the
most expensive Indian restaurant in Britain — the Cinnamon Club
in Westminster is the haunt of top politicians — now intends to
do his bit to restore the reputation of British food.

After a two-week trial period, the Roast in the heart of the ancient
Borough Market formally opens for business tomorrow.

It will offer traditional dishes such as Roast Beef and Yorkshire
Pudding, Bangers and Mash (sausages and potatoes), Fish and
Chips, Steak and Kidney Pie and items less well known such as
Cullen Skink (Scottish soup made with haddock) with Quails’ Eggs.
