An Indian Brunch Feast at Manchester's Dishoom
We've anticipated the arrival of Dishoom in Manchester for a couple of years now, just patiently waiting until the day we could get our hands on their infamous bacon naan. You'll find Dishoom inside the newly renovated Manchester Hall which as soon as you step through the door you'll be transported to 1960s Bombay. Expect to find plenty of dark wooden furniture, slow winding ceiling fans and old vintage photos.
Well known for their breakfast dishes we knew we had to pay them a visit one brunch, but the good news is that doesn't mean having to miss out on cocktails due to their extensive dry cocktail range. Whether you fancy an old fashioned or an espresso martini you can enjoy them completely tee-total but they still taste just like the real deal thanks to their top secret spirit alternatives.
But what about the food? The bacon naan was everything we'd waited for and more; soft fluffy naan, smoked streaky bacon, cream cheese and chilli tomato jam - the perfect size with a hot cup of spicy chai on the side. If bacons not your thing then we'd recommend the sausage naan too, stuffed with freshly made cracked black pepper Shropshire pork sausages. If you're looking for something bigger try the Keema Per Eedu, a hearty dish of spicy chicken keema, chicken liver and two runny yolk eggs topped with the amazing type of crisps you can only track down on holiday! If that doesn't fill you up alone then the two homemade buns it comes with certainly will.
We'd definitely return to try more of the breakfast menu but we've got a curiosity to try the main menu first. Have you visited Dishoom yet?
