Breakfast at Dishoom, London

Dishoom had some high expectations to live up to.
All I’ve ever heard about it is amazing praises about it’s Indian food. 
They’ve got locations in Shoreditch, King’s Cross and Covent Garden, and since we we booked the Covent Garden branch through OpenTable, I had no reason to put my edgy shoes on. 

We were there for the most important meal of the day.

Breakfast at Dishoom is a bit of a hidden gem. Not heaps of people know they even do breakfast, but those who know it, know it (if you get my drift, which you probably don’t).

Basically, I’d seen so many pictures on Instagram of these bloody delicious looking bacon and egg sandwiches but with naan bread. What could be more perfect?

Maybe the fact that I was sat opposite this twerp.

He knew the drill – I would be ordering and we would be sharing. I don’t even know why he’s looking at the menu, silly boy.

We started ourselves off how any weekend should start.

Well, he did anyway, ordering the Bloody Mary made with the feisty Mary-mix of Dishoom. He kept saying how spicy it was – and how he loved it.

I, on the other hand, went for a fresh apple, carrot and ginger juice like a good little girl.

Then, the food. Our first selection was The Big Bombay. Shall I read you the menu description?

“Your plate will be laden with abundant Akuri, char-striped smoked streaky bacon from The Ginger Pig, peppery Shropshire pork sausages, masala baked beans, grilled field mushroom, grilled tomato and buttered pau buns. Too good.”

Too good indeed. It was the Indian version of a Full English, and it was perfect.

Now, if you told me to come back and choose between the two dishes (or even the House Porridge that I was desperate to try) I don’t think I’d be able to.

As I mentioned, Dishoom do Naan Rolls. We ordered the Bacon & Naan Roll, well because, who wouldn’t?

Holy shit, how have I not invented this before?

You can probably imagine how good it was, and the sauce (MAKE SURE YOU TRY THE SAUCE) that comes with it on the side is exceptional.

We finished off the meal with some hot drinks.

Boy ordered the House Chai (which is recommended – best I’ve ever had), but I went for the Chocolate Chai, a mix of dark chocolate and, obviously, chai. As a chocolate lover, I preferred mine.
Ming had seen our little trip on Instagram (I couldn’t help myself) and was angry I didn’t take her. Any excuse to go back!
