I recently took a quick trip down to London to see my best friend Zoe who recently moved there for work. We had loads of catching up to do and in the process we had some great laughs and great food too. I figured I would write about a few of the places we went and the things that we did starting with breakfast of course.
Have you ever had a Bombay style breakfast?? Neither had I until I came across a restaurant called Dishoom. I’d heard great things about Dishoom but never anything about their breakfast. They specialise in Bombay style food so I was very excited.
There was two sections to the restaurant a large indoor area and a smaller ‘outside’ area. Outside isn’t quite the word because it is still completely enclosed but isn’t part of the original building. It was super busy which to me is a great sign!
I can’t really comment on the main building decor other than it seemed quite dark – more of an evening vibe in my opinion. The outside area was cheery, bright and full of hanging plants. It had a very rustic feel to it with lights hanging from beams and miss-matching seats. It also appeared to be dog friendly which is a bonus in my books!
What I Ate
Dishoom is known for their superb breakfast’s, in particular their Naan Rolls. So of course I absolutely had to get one and see what the fuss was about. I oped for the Wrestler’s Naan Roll which consisted of a fresh baked naan with cream cheese, chilli jam, bacon, sausage and an egg! In hindsight, Zoe and I probably could have shared this like the server suggested but we were heading out for a day of drinking so calories don’t count right???
Believe me when I tell you that this was incredible! It was absolutely packed full of flavour and I really enjoy having the naan rather than a standard softie / roll.
To wash down my breakfast I went for a Chocolate Chai which is basically an incredible take on a hot chocolate. You could taste the dark chocolate but it didn’t over power the spicy Chai flavour – it worked beautifully together.
I would highly recommend Dishoom! They have a few different restaurants in the UK including; Edinburgh, Manchester, Kensington, Shoreditch (The one I visited!), King’s Cross, Carnaby and Covent Garden.

Have you been to a Dishoom before? What did you think of it?
Have a fab weekend!
