Dear Friends

 

It’s the start of February, a new month…

Here at Mr Todiwala’s Petiscos we’ve decided that in the current lock-down climate, we should stay focussed on the future. And so from this week, we’ll step back from offering take-out and instead take the time to plan for when restrictions are lifted and we can once again offer you the full ‘Mr Todiwala’s Petiscos dining experience’. That’s when we’ll be able to open our doors and welcome you in for seated dining in our ‘little gem in Buckhurst Hill’. We really hope we won’t have to wait too long. But meanwhile, we’ll continue to keep in touch as we don’t intend to go away from our perch on the hill any time soon.

 

Please follow us on Instagram  Facebook and Twitter where we’ll be posting latest news and telling you what’s happening. Meanwhile, keep safe and well and keep watching this space!

 

Warmest

The Petisco or Petiscos is a gastronomical habit that has its roots in the Iberian Peninsula but is better known by its Spanish name Tapas.  Translated, the tapa and the Petisco means a delicatessen or a snack, a ‘small’ thing prepared and cooked in a special way that concentrates more on quality than quantity: special little snacks that accompany drinks or make small delicious light meals or large meals made of small snacks.

Petiscos are a large and integral part of Portuguese gastronomy and traditions, just as tapas are for Spain with one main difference, Tapas have become internationally known and are served worldwide, often in trendy tapas bars that specialise in Tapas and Spanish wines. Petiscos are still found mainly in Portugal and most people abroad are unfamiliar with the Portuguese culture so have never heard of them.

ABOUT US

A new concept dovetailing sophisticated Goan-Portuguese cuisine with wines from small, family-run vineyards in the Douro Valley, Lisboa, Dao, Alentejo and other, to-date lesser known regions of Portugal, has come to Queens Road , Buckhurst Hill

 

A partnership between the Todiwalas and Steven and Michelle Schaffer of Portuguese Vinhos, the leading importer of Portuguese wines into Britain, ‘Mr Todiwala’s Petiscos’

will confine its menu to tasting platters, or Petiscos, featuring seasonal British produce

and ingredients, including sustainable seafood. Bombay-born Cyrus Todiwala, a regular

on BBC’s Saturday Kitchen, will inject his experience and on-going connections with Goa

to offer a unique take on an enduring Portuguese gastronomic tradition.

Cyrus Todiwala says “Steve and I go back a long way, and his and Michelle’s knowledge of Portuguese wines is second to none. I love their wines, and they go perfectly with the Goan-inspired Petiscos we will be serving to our customers. Don’t forget that Portugal was the very first country to introduce European wines to Asia and the Americas, and spices as well.’

 

Steven Redman-Schaffer said, ‘Michelle and I share the same vision as Cyrus and Pervin and it’s terrific that we’re working together on this exciting venture. We all believe that fine food and wine is the prerogative of everyone and should not cost the earth. It’s great for us to be able to introduce new food and wine pairing concepts like ‘Mr Todiwala’s Petiscos’ which allow people to discover and enjoy world class cuisine with wines in a truly

convivial atmosphere of sharing.'
