Nearly six months since its opening, Dishoom Manchester has continued to wow people with its Iranian Cafe themed delights. It’s one of the restaurants that we have returned to a few times now, and we aren’t the only ones, with queues still forming on Saturday evenings!
But it’s not just dinner that is the pull to this delight, which is set in the old Masons Hall that is now home to a few restaurants including Dishoom and the newly opened Honest Burger.
We travelled back to see how the breakfast menu has evolved, with the promise of a few changes and tweaks.
Many may have been put off trying breakfast at Dishoom, with the thoughts of Curries and Dhal not being fitting for this time of day, however the breakfast menu is not only varied, it is full of some real breakfast wonders.
If you’ve not yet seen and heard of Dishoom’s Breakfast Naan’s, then you have no idea what you have been missing. Previously options included Sausage and Egg or Bacon and Egg. With people not being content with these options alone, the requests of tweaks, have lead to the introduction of a Double Bacon Naan (£9.00) as well as the Wrestlers Naan Roll (£9.50), which combines the Sausage and Bacon together with Egg for this ultimate feast Naan.
Vegan options are also plentiful, with the one that caught my eye being a Vegan Akuri (£7.20). Akuri is an egg dish, where eggs are scrambled and cooked with spices and served with bread. I wondered how it was possible for this to be vegan. I’m informed that instead of egg, soya beans are used.
The dish looked very similar to the standard non vegan version and taste wise it was not dissimilar. Slightly tougher in texture definitely, but the flavour was intense and thoroughly enjoyable – is there nothing that Dishoom can’t pull off.
Other Vegan options include a Vegan Sausage Naan (£6.50) or a Soy Keema No Eedu (£10.50), which consists of Spiced Soy Keema, Sali Crisp-Chips and a toasted Pau.
That’s not all though, with other additions including Chicken Livers on Toast (£7.50) or for those with a sweet tooth, the Sweet Appam Stack (£7.90), thrice stacked, lightly filled appam pancakes, topped with creamy sheikh and, fresh berries, toasted coconut flakes and jaggery syrup.
For those looking for a real treat at the weekend, Dishoom have also launched a bountiful weekend sharing menu, which brings together some of their most loved dishes, and serve them to share.
Guests can choose between alcoholic or non alcoholic sparkling wine, a classic Bloody Mary or their own Virgin Mary. These are then served alongside generous bowls of fruit, yoghurt and homemade granola.
To follow this, guests will then be served up a platter of sharing naan’s, Keema Per Eedu (Spicy Chicken Keema studded with Chicken Liver and topped with two runny yolked eggs and sail crisp-chips) or their gorgeous Akuri. (Vegetarian and Vegan options are available)
The Weekend Breakfast Feast is available for two or more guests from 9am TIL 11:45am on Saturday and Sundays and is priced at just £20/£22 per guest (non-alcoholic/alcoholic)
Booking for this or other sittings at Dishoom can be made here.
