Epic street food flavours discovered on Kolkata backstreets, Bombay beaches, and Keralan waterways led Aussie traveller Mark Wright on a journey, to bring the incredible experience of Indian street food to the UK.
The burgeoning London street food industry provided the perfect vehicle to realise his ambition, but setting up a food business in one of the worlds toughest markets isn’t easy. Starting lean meant hard graft, with late night kitchen sessions and weekly markets fitting around a full-time office job, but with support from local market groups such as Kerb, Street Feast, London Union, and the Real Food Festival, Mark was able to test his ideas and connect with like minded people while having a lot of fun at the very coalface of Britain’s lunch market – and queues of hungry people snaking around the block to get their ‘Rola fix’ made every late night shift worth it.
Since then, Rola Wala has featured in a Hollywood movie (‘Burnt‘, starring Bradley Cooper), been voted ‘Londons Best Wrap‘ by Rita Ora and the team at Saturday Kitchen (BBC One), featured on Rachel Khoo’s Kitchen Notebook: London, and even made a cameo appearance on Jamie Olivers Friday Night Feasts.
What started as Mark’s passion for Indian food and flavours is today the result of the collective energy of an entire team that work to bring high quality, fresh Indian flavours to customers across the UK every day – Our mission is to ignite spaces everywhere with incredible Indian flavours, It really is that simple.
