Urban Chowk opens today in Yalm

Yalm’s first pop-up kitchen Urban Chowk opens today.

Yalm, based in the Royal Arcade Norwich, has announced that the first pop-up kitchen to open in its main first floor food hall from Tuesday 1 August will be Urban Chowk which will be serving an authentic, vegetarian and vegan Indian menu. Urban Chowk comes from the team that manages Namaste Village, the very popular, award-winning vegetarian and vegan Indian restaurant on Queen’s Road in Norwich.

The name Urban Chowk is very appropriate for Yalm as ‘chowk’ means junction. The Royal Arcade has three junctions at White Lion Street, Gentleman’s Walk and Castle Street where Yalm is situated.

Highlights from the menu include starters such as Kachori, which are fried pastries containing spiced green peas, Cheese Paneer Samosas and Chick’n Momo, steamed dumplings stuffed with spiced vegan chicken. And, the main dishes include Kaju Vegetable Korma, Paneer Butter Masala and Spicy Honey Chik’n Garlic.
