Ruby Murrays in Southampton is a ghost kitchen that sells Indian food British style. What’s a ghost kitchen, you might ask? Good question. Essentially, it’s just a takeout place; they don’t offer any type of sit-down dining. They share the kitchen with Wishbone Farms in Southampton, which is right off off Hampton Road.
I didn’t know what to think about it, as it’s literally the first ghost kitchen that I have ever heard of in the Hamptons. It’s also the only British-styled Indian food east of the canal. I was invited by the owner Edward Brooks for a tasting, not knowing what to expect but showed up at Wishbone Kitchen ready for action.
I could not believe how good it was.
First of all, Edward sort of throws you off. He presents himself as a small-time entrepreneur, but I quickly figured out just through conversation that he’s basically a technology genius, having advised massive companies on their technology, including complex manufacturing, robotics, and e-commerce. I sat with two of his friends who had just come in from the city, and Edward was remarkably passionate about the food. “I just love this kind of food and really wanted to have it in the Hamptons. So I said to myself, why not?”
A whirlwind of food was brought out to us, all of it amazing by chef David Bonavides. He brought out samosas, butter chicken (amazing), baked naan, chicken tikka masala, rogan nash lamb, all of it covered in sensational sauces with creative arrays of spices that are almost indescribable. You would take a bite and literally wonder what the spice was, only to have David Bonavides wink at us as he headed back to the kitchen.
It’s so nice to have another takeout option, and if your looking to change it up for the evening Ruby Murray’s is the way to go. Order it directly from their website, www.rubymurrays.world
