Dishoom – Indian Street Food – Covent Garden

Dishoom Wallah in the eating…

 

I discovered Dishoom back in Dec 2010 and since it’s been a regular comfort eating pit-stop. Whether it was their restaurant in the heart of Covent Garden or their Summer (2011) pop-up ‘Chowpatty Beach’ on the Southbank, their street food offering ticks a lot of boxes.

On every visit I always order their soothing Chai and on special occassions with a dash of Hennessey or their latest version is with Baileys. On the food front, my aversion to coriander doesn’t get me very far, pretty much every dish is laced or garnished with it. I’ve learnt to grin and bear it (at least my Mother will be pleased I’m eating my greens!). The signature dishes entitled with ‘Dishoom’ as shown in my pictures are good bets, especially the calamari, tossed in spices and delicious pink peppercorns for extra zinginess. Their Anglo-Indian dishes such as their ‘bacon nan’ served with a smudge of cream cheese and a chilli jam is an example of a good fusion combo.

I like the branding and ethos of this family run buisness, one of the owners is always to be found on-site, they’re digitally savvy with a refreshing website and social media interaction. By joining their facebook page or twitter stream @dishoomlondon, you can become one of the ‘Dishoom Wallahs’ – ardent fans, that gives you cheeky discounts, freebies and invites to events. What I most look forward to are the amusing ‘home-made’ mini productions they post up to advertise different events.  I’ve posted an example below…
