Keep calm and curry on – naan pizza is here!
Indian cuisine lovers, brace yourselves. Just when you thought your butter chicken and vegetable samosas couldn’t get any better, along comes It’s Mirchi Bulimba and turns them into pizzas, atop their fresh, house made naan bread. That’s right, every Saturday and Sunday from 11.30am-2.30pm, you can your hands on a scrumptious naan pizza – and for under $20 at that. And then another one, because let’s face it, it’s naan pizza. Plus, with butter chicken, lamb rogan josh and vegetable samosa pizzas all on the menu, you’ll want to try them all. Packed with flavour and loaded with toppings like avocado, spinach, tomato, olives and jalepenos on the vegetable samosa version, and capsicum, onions and tomato on the butter chicken delight, along with plenty of cheese, you’ll wonder why it’s not on the menu at every Indian restaurant in Brisbane. If naan pizzas just aren’t the chutney to your samosa, perhaps you’d prefer to feast your eyes and tastebuds on their Thali, another delicious lunchtime option. Food schedulers will go ba-naan-nas for this plate of goodness, with individual compartments for curry, rice, pappadums, relish and salad – so you can try a little bit of everything! Vegetarian, vegan or meat-lover, you’re covered here, with Thali for every kind of appetite. And you’ll even get change back from a twenty. Luckily for your figure, heading out for lunch at It’s Mirchi won’t ruin your diet. With all of their curries low in sugar and fatty oils (although naan pizza is a bit more of a cheat meal), and plenty of dishes that can be altered to suit dairy free, gluten free, and nut free needs, your whole social group can make samosa these weekend deals. Pop in to It’s Mirchi Bulimba on weekends between 11.30am-2.30pm for cheap eats that won’t make you wish you hadn’t spent all that money on cocktails last night. But let’s face it – the second we heard the words ‘lamb rogan josh pizza,’ we didn’t stand a chance. Check out their Facebook or Instagram pages for a preview of the goodies!
