Gary Masala Ltd
Unit 21, Butchers Row, Market Place
Gary Masala, which is based in the Bideford Pannier Market, promises a new and unique dining experience, offering cuisine from India, Pakistan, Turkey and Bangladesh. The venue is run by former teacher Joel Herron, who has swapped the classroom for the kitchen.
We offer food from India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Turkey and all over the ‘Spice Trail’. It’s fresh, tasty and something that people are really enjoying already.”
His passion for food from the ‘Spice Trail’ stemmed from his upbringing in South London. Influenced by both his friends he grew up with and the cuisine in the area, it’s a love affair which has stayed with him throughout his career.
Having grown up in South London, he was surrounded by the food and he just loved it, his best mate was from Pakistan so he was always eating at his house. So he really wanted to bring that here and it’s nice to see that it’s being received well.”
In addition to the stall, Mr Herron also cooks at various campsites across North Devon and is hoping to progress both arms of the business in coming months.
