Rola Wala has opened in Spitalfields, East London – its second site. Founder Mark Wright launched the street concept, which offers “twisted Indian street food”, translates from Hindi as “man that rolls” in Hindi, at Trinity Kitchen, Leeds, in 2014.
The new site in Brushfield Street references the Indian roadside diners that first inspired Wright, with the concept evolving while operating on streets and festivals across the UK.
The focal point is a large service counter, where guests can customise their food for a grab-and-go working lunch, while two rows of high metal stools provide seating for eating in. It also features timber cladding, pendant lighting, scaffold polls, and metal shelving stocked with spice jars.
Rola Wala will open a site at the £440m Westgate Oxford development in October.
