Valentine’s Day Lunch at Dishoom

Forget the romantic flowers and chocolate teddies, this Valentine’s Day me and the boy spent this February 14th doing what we both love – eat.

I’m not sure if it’s a sign of me growing up but the older I get, Valentine’s Day becomes less focused on the fancy gifts and flowers but more on spending time with my loved ones, whether it be my partner, family or close friends.

In true food blogger fashion, we ventured down to King’s Cross to scope out the much talked about Dishoom. Situated in a renovated railway transit shed just off Regents Canal, Dishoom is a hidden gem tucked away in the middle of the hustle and bustle of King’s Cross.

Dishoom draws heavily from the heritage and tradition of the old Bombay Cafés, boasting an all- day Indian Street style menu offering breakfast bacon naan rolls to their 24 hour simmered Black House Daal. My past experiences with Indian food have been limited so I was struggling to choose from the wide variety of dishes on offer. Luckily for me, le boyfriend is a true advocate of the Indian cuisine so was there to lend a helping hand.

For starters we ordered tasty lamb samosas (which you can't see in the pictures as we obviously couldn't wait) and chilli cheese bread followed by a main of spicy chicken tikka pieces and vegetarian Mattar Paneer, a mild vegetarian curry loaded with delicate cheese cubes accompanied by the most gorgeous roti. Just a heads up, the chicken is incredibly spicy so unless you like your food with a hefty kick, you can ask for it to be served mild.




I’m ashamed to admit that Dishoom was my first experience at dining at an Indian restaurant *gasp!* however it’s safe to say I am a happy convert. Not only was the food delicious, the friendly service and restaurant aesthetics were impeccable. It’s clear that every detail in this open planned restaurant was specially crafted to transport whoever enters to what one could only imagine as Bombay in the mid-19th century.
