Leon launches gluten free katsu curry

Come and try this delicious new menu item!

LEON has launched the UK’s first, gluten-free Katsu Curry available on the high street!

The curry, playfully coined ‘Lucky Katsu’ is made with LEON’s already famous GFC (gluten-free chicken nuggets) and an aromatic, coconut-based curry sauce, making it the first Katsu curry available at a high-street restaurant brand that is both coeliac friendly and made without dairy. Made using sustainably sourced gluten-free chicken with Red Tractor accreditation*, fresh herbs and spices, the new Katsu curry is packed with flavour but free from artificial colours, flavours or preservatives.

The dish is notoriously difficult to make with a gluten-free recipe, due to the chicken or veg being coated in Japanese-style panko breadcrumbs..

Named Lucky, after the double meaning for the word Katsu (meaning ‘cutlet’ and ‘to win’ or ‘to be victorious’ in Japanese), the curry has now launched at a price of £7.45 and will be accompanied with LEON’s brown rice and vegetable slaw.

The Lucky Katsu joins additional dishes, such as the best-selling Lentil Masala that will return to the new Autumn menu at the same time for £4.95.
