I do like a good breakfast and I recently had a couple of amazing breakfasts at Dishoom in Shoreditch. Dishoom describes itself as a “Bombay Café”. Persian and Iranian immigrants opened these cafés in Mumbai in the 19th century. It’s kind of a mix between Indian and Iranian food, I guess.
Indian food for breakfast, you may ask? Yes! Dishoom has developed a breakfast menu that seems exotic to your average European palate but it tastes divine.
The first time I went I had the bacon naan roll with chili tomato jam, cream cheese and herbs. The second time I had the Akuri, spicy scrambled eggs with fire toast. A coffee and a breakfast lassi to wash it down.
Next time I might have to go for the full Bombay breakfast.
