From award-winning chef Sunil Ghai and wife Leena, Tiffin is a brand new concept that will spice up your lunchtime and beyond.
In 1890s Mumbai, a man named Mahadeo Havaji Bachche started a lunch delivery service with around 100 men (know as the Dabbawalas). Eventually, the lunchboxes they delivered (called Tiffins) were carried by bicycle and train to offices and schools throughout the cities of India, bringing working people and school kids hot meals to get them through their day.
At TIFFIN Sunil and Leena bring this tasty slice of Indian life to you, bringing to Greystones village the very best authentic Indian food, using only the best local and seasonal produce.
Long-time local Leena will talk you through the exciting daily lunch options which can be pre-ordered for collection. Or have a look through the range of homemade pickles and chutneys in store – just like the ones in Sunil’s award-winning Camden Street restaurant, Pickle.
Along with a concise selection of store cupboard essentials in the cosy retail space, you’ll also find a selection of spices and spice blends made using Sunil’s own recipes. At TIFFIN all spices are freshly roasted and ground by master chef Sunil, for that authentic flavour. They are available to buy aswell.
Talk to Leena about having some fresh spices ground and blended in store just for you. They can also prepare tasty traditional or original spice blends – just tell Leena what you want and they will work their magic for you!
