Cult Dishoom breakfast gets a makeover
| 21st May 2019
Dishoom has shaken up its morning ritual with the launch of a next-level breakfast menu.
Lovers of their bacon naan rolls will rejoice at upgrades to this cult breakfast classic, while vegans will enjoy plant-based makeovers of signature dishes, alongside the introduction of brand-new breakfast dishes.
First up, the new double bacon naan (£9.00) steps up its cult classic with double the amount of first-rate smoked streaky bacon, crisped and piled high in freshly baked naan, with cream cheese, chilli tomato jam and fresh herbs. Twice the bacon, twice the joy – it’s guaranteed to become the next must-order.
Next up, is the wrestler’s naan roll (£9.50). Named in homage to Koolar & Co.’s wrestler-sized portions, it combines streaky bacon, peppery sausage and runny-yolked egg in fresh naan. Grapple with it.
Lovers of the original bacon, sausage or egg naan rolls need not fear, they remain a firm favourite and fixture on the new menu, made with top-class produce from Ramsay of Carluke, Maynard’s Farms and Clarence Court, respectively.
New signature dishes, including chicken livers on toast (£7.50) is made to Chef Naved’s much-loved family recipe. Those sweeter-of-tooth will welcome the sweet appam stack (£7.90), thrice-stacked, lightly-frilled appam pancakes topped with creamy shrikhand, fresh berries, toasted coconut flakes and jaggery syrup.
We also tried the parsi omelette, a crazy-paving three egg omelette of chopped tomato, onion, coriander and green chilli served with grilled tomato and first toast. Priced at £7.20 it’s more than enough for breakfast!
The big Bombay is a belly buster and is the institution’s version of a full English, only this dish comes with added Iranian flavours. A little pricey at £12.50 although we were more than happy given that we were late having our first meal of the day.
The new menu also sees the introduction of ample vegan-friendly dishes. Vegans can finally enjoy the much-loved naan rolls with the new vegan sausage naan (£6.50) and features soy keema no eedu (£10.50), a vegan breakfast of fortitude, consisting of spiced soy keema with sali crisp-chips and homemade toasted pau, and vegan akuri (£7.20), an eggless version of a spicy breakfast scramble.
It has also introduced a bountiful weekend feasting menu, bringing together some of their most-loved breakfast dishes, which will be served to share for a most indulgent breakfast feast.
Guests have a choice of alcoholic or non-alcoholic sparkling wine, a classic bloody mary, or the non-inebriating virgin mary, served alongside generous bowls of fruit, yoghurt and homemade granola.
To follow, guests will enjoy a platter of sharing naans, keema per eedu (spicy chicken keema studded with morsels of chicken liver, topped with two runny-yolked fried eggs and sali crisp-chips) or bountiful akuri (eggs, spiced and scrambled), and plentiful helpings of toasted pau (Bombay’s favourite bread buns).
Vegetarian and vegan options are available and include vegan sausage naans, soy keema and eggless akuri. The weekend breakfast feast will be available for two or more guests to enjoy from 9am to 11.45am on Saturday and Sunday mornings, and priced at £20/£22 per guest (non-alcoholic/alcoholic).
