I decided to pop into Dishoom (http://www.dishoom.com/shoreditch/) for some black dal. I’d practically been dreaming about it since I first had it here. Comedy of errors ensued! When I sat down, there was only the breakfast menu and no dhal in sight. I suppose I could have asked if they had some anyway but my courage failed me and I was hungry. I ordered kerjiwal
Two fried eggs on chilli cheese toast.
and a side order of masala beans. It sounded all right and I was looking forward to some spice. I told the server that I couldn’t eat sweet peppers and waited. What I got was some overdone toasted cheese with two average fried eggs and a little thing of ketchup. No spice anywhere. I asked about the beans and was told that they had peppers and someone had forgotten to let me know I wouldn’t get them. I wondered if the server had listened when I told him twice that I wanted chilies, just couldn’t eat peppers. Again, my mood wasn’t into it today. I ate it and left.
Will I go back? You bet! But this time it will be the black dal or nothing!
Love the toilets here with the moody music and candelight
