We’re offering two lucky readers the chance to win a Monkey Shoulder 'Gorilla' of whisky each. That’s 4.5 litres of the good stuff worth a whopping £290! (Whatever you do, don’t drink it all at once). Each winner also bags a night of fun for them and three mates at the Ely's Yard-hosted Pop Down bar, home to hashtag printers – to capture the night’s action – and a ‘never-not-underdressed’ dress code.
Plus you can enjoy Monkey Shoulder cocktails – two each – on the house: take your pick from twisted classics such as the Gorilla Old Fashioned and new favourites like the Missionary’s Monkey. And to help you soak up the booze, Scottish foodie mavericks Dram & Smoke will lay on canapés, including duck doughnuts and deep fried Mars bars with Monkey Shoulder jelly.
To be in with a chance of winning, simply answer the following question correctly.
Masala Zone Bayswater
This Masala Zone in Bayswater - one of nine London restaurants from a reliable group - is a solid example of why this brand remains so popular. Expect a winning combination of affordable, authentic Indian food, good-looking surroundings and cheery service. That authenticity keeps the menu away from curry house staples - so no chicken tikka masala, say. Instead, expect thalis, an array of biriyanis and an interesting selection of street food dishes, ranging from samosas and dahi puri (whole wheat biscuits filled with spiced mash and three chutneys) to sprouted lentil bhel, pao bhaji and masala papad. Lunch offers and special deals at other times keep prices even more keen.
Venue says: “Lunches are light, quick and inexpensive. Many dishes are lightly spiced. Specials include butter chicken bowl and mysore veg dosa from £10.”
