He has cooked for queens, maharajas and presidents but now celebrity chef Tony Singh’s special brand of Indian cooking has taken residences within the the prestigious Bonnie & Wild Scottish Marketplace in Edinburgh.

Tony’s Radge Chaat Indian food stall at Bonnie & Wild has opened after he and his brother Lucky trialled a pop-up in the west end of the capital during lockdown, with the chefs wanting to “take the next step and open a city centre venue”.

“I launched Radge Chaat in 2021 because I wanted to bring high-quality, authentic Indian street food to Edinburgh,” he said. “Amid the pessimism of lockdown, especially for hospitality, I wanted to give people accessible, colourful, and soul-lifting Indian food.

“After the success of our pop-up, I wanted to take the next step and open a city centre venue. I’m really excited to be joining Bonnie & Wild’s Scottish Marketplace. There are already some great chefs involved and I’m delighted to now be part of this community.”

The TV chef added: “I’ll be using the finest spices and freshest ingredients, and cooking everything right in front of guests. I’m really excited about showing off this amazing food in this amazing venue.”

 “Chaat” is a savoury snack that originated in India, often served from roadside stalls or food carts. The word, which derived from “Chaatna”, meaning “to lick”, describes a host of savoury snacks characterised by their “full and punchy flavours” and sweet, sour, spicy, tangy, and crunchy taste.

“Expect full and punchy flavours from India, made using the best ingredients we can get our hands on,” said Tony. “Everything is vegetarian and there will be vegan and gluten-free options too, so no-one has to miss out.”
