Lasan Win The 'F' Word - Vote for your local!

Lasan Birmingham  Voted ‘Britains Best Local Restaurant’ by their customers and judged by Gordon Ramsey at the Channel 4 Finals.

Dine with us caught up with Executive chef Aktar Islam on the day of the finals for a meal and an Exclusive interview. Well done Lasan!

Aktar had created an exclusive tasting menu selection of his favourite dishes for us to try while we chatted “I try and source influences from all over India – I would normally be there myself now, I love travelling around the Country trying different dishes and ingredients, to bring them home and experiment  with their flavours and textures, however, the ‘F’ Word has meant that trip is on hold this year."

All our ingredients are authentic – sourcing meats from the neighbouring counties of Staffordshire for beef, Shropshire for Chicken, as well as Worcestershire, and further afield we have some fantastic ingredients from Warwickshire and the East Midlands, however, I feel that you cannot have an authentic restaurant without bringing the core ingredients from the country of original. I know if I am serving Cashmere herbs, or Goan style dishes or a true Punjabi dish, that the ingredients, and the flavours, are truly from that area – not just that they say so on the packet! This is something very important to me to create the full Lasan experience”
