Review: THAT Bacon Naan at Dishoom, Shoreditch | FOOD

It’s been my mission for the last few years to visit Dishoom for breakfast because apparently they do pretty great bacon naan rolls. I finally visited over the weekend and those naan rolls lived up to the huge expectations.

I’ve visited dishoom before on a Sunday, arriving at about 11 ish only to find that we’re unable to get in. We would’ve had to queue for 45 minutes, at which point they wouldn’t be serving the breakfast menu anymore. Who knew naan rolls could be so elusive?! This time, we’d booked a table bright and early for 9.15am at the Shoreditch branch.

Dishoom – What We Ordered

I’ve never seen Dishoom so quiet before; it’s always been packed whenever I’ve visited previously so we had free reign over the choice of tables. We just chose a little table tucked away in the corner.

I ordered a latte because coffee is necessary at this time in the morning and my friend opted for a breakfast smoothie with oats, mango and banana. After perusing the breakfast menu I chose the classic bacon naan rolls which I’d heard so much about and my friend ordered the sausage and egg naan roll.

We were quite happy just chilling, enjoying our leisurely morning and watching the world go by, until we realised that two tables that arrived after us were already tucking into their food! It was then that we twigged we’d been waiting for thirty minutes and it wasn’t exactly busy. I walked up to a group of waiters who had gathered and very politely asked for an update on our food order, pointing out the tables that had arrived after us but served before us. It turned out that we’d been forgotten about and our order hadn’t been placed as the waiter promised he would find out what had happened.

Credit where credit is due; the staff were fantastic and came up to us to apologise and let us know that our food would arrive in another five minutes. When our food arrived it was delicious and definitely worth the wait. The naan bread rolls were soft, thin and light; not at all like the naan bread we buy from the supermarkets and the bacon filling was crispy. I was a bit apprehensive about the chilli jam but it wasn’t spicy at all and gave a lovely flavour. One of the supervisors came to check if everything was ok, apologised for the delay again and told us that the food would be on the house because of the wait which was a pleasant suprise although we were quite happy to pay ourselves. The bacon naan roll is only £5.90 which I think is pretty good value for money in London for breakfast, where its normal to pay around the £9 mark for a breakfast dish.

Dishoom – 4/5

A bacon naan roll is so unique – I’ve never seen anything else like it in London and the flavours were great. I’d go back in a heartbeat, but fingers crossed the service is better next time!

Food – 5/5

Service – 2/5

Decor / Ambience – 3/5

The total cost for two people was £7.65 including service.
