Mornings just got a whole lot better, as Dishoom has launched a brand new breakfast menu this month.
Lovers of bacon naan rolls will rejoice at the upgrades to the cult breakfast classic, while vegans can enjoy plant-based makeovers of signature dishes alongside the introduction of brand-new breakfast dishes.
The launch also sees the introduction of Dishoom’s first-ever breakfast feast: a weekend sharing menu bringing together their most-loved breakfast dishes.
The new double bacon naan (£9) steps up Dishoom’s cult classic.
There’s double the amount of first-rate smoked streaky bacon, crisped and piled high in freshly baked naan bread with cream cheese, chilli tomato jam and fresh herbs. Twice the bacon, twice the joy.
Also new to the menu 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 wrapped in fresh naan.
Don’t worry, though. The original bacon, sausage or egg naan rolls still appear on the menu. And now vegans can join in the fun with the introduction of a new vegan sausage naan (£6.50).
The menu also sees the introduction of some new signature breakfast dishes.
Hearty chicken livers on toast (£7.50) is made to chef Naved’s much-loved family recipe, while those sweeter-of-tooth will welcome the sweet appam stack (£7.90).
The Instagram-friendly triple-stacked appam pancakes, made with rice batter and coconut, are topped with lightly spiced Greek yoghurt, fresh berries, toasted coconut flakes and jaggery syrup.
Sweet and sticky, yes, but they also manage to feel light.
There’s more for vegetarians to enjoy, too. Soy keema no eedu (£10.50) consists of spiced meat-free keema with sali crisp-chips and homemade toasted pau buns, while vegan akuri (£7.20) is an eggless version of Dishoom’s spicy breakfast scramble.
There’s also a new weekend breakfast feasting menu, perfect for groups.
Start with an alcoholic or non-alcoholic sparkling wine, classic Bloody Mary or non-boozy Virgin Mary, plus healthy bowls of fruit, yoghurt and homemade granola.
Then dive into a platter of sharing naans, spicy keema studded with chicken liver and topped with runny-yolked fried eggs and crisp-chips, or spiced scrambled eggs with toasted buns.
Vegetarian and vegan options include vegan sausage naans, soy keema and eggless akuri.
And buying breakfast is a charitable act, too. As if you needed any more of an excuse.
For every meal served, the team will donate a school meal to a child who would otherwise go hungry. A meal for a meal. Dishoom work with two charities, the Akshaya Patra Foundation in India and Magic Breakfast in the UK, who provide nourishing meals to children in schools.
So far, Dishoom has donated over 5 million meals and counting.
Dishoom’s new breakfast is available now. The weekend breakfast feast for two or more guests is available from 9am to 11.45am on Saturday and Sunday mornings, and priced at £20 or £22 per guest depending on whether you opt for non-alcoholic or alcoholic drinks.
