Christmas is fast approaching, but there's still time to decide on gifts for friends, family, neighbours and the like. Fortunately, the Dishoom Store stocks a range of extremely lovely gifts to suit all manner of recipients (though you may be sorely tempted to keep them for yourself!)
From hard-to-find spices and comforting chai to our beloved naan rolls and gift coins, there are plenty of eclectic gifts and sundries to choose from (no last-minute dashing around required).
Dishoom Cookery Book:– The ultimate guide to many of Dishoom’s signature dishes including the famous Naan Rolls, Black Daal and House Chai.
Dishoom Masala Dabba:– A first-class, quick-start collection of twelve top-quality spices and blends, thoughtfully presented in a lovely dabba. A great foundation for mastering Dishoom recipes and Indian cookery.
Dishoom Tea Towel:– Every home cook will benefit from this generously-sized tea towel made of finest cotton for keeping their rotis warm.
Dishoom Chutneys:– Choose from delectable Apple Chundo, Tamarind & Date Chutney and Chilli Chutney – to daub, dip or dollop as necessary to uplift all manner of dishes, or for a perfect gift, opt for the Dishoom Chutney Gift Set which includes all three as well as little stainless-steel spoons and bowls for serving.
Culinary Hamper:– Combine all of these top-notch treats into one lovely gift with the culinary hamper. Featuring the Dishoom Cookery Book, Masala Dabba, House Chai, cotton Tea Towel and signature Incense (with matches and a wooden holder). All housed in a sturdy blue hamper box.
Feast Kits:– The Home Feast contains signature Dishoom dishes, all lovingly prepared by Dishoom chefs to be heated, grilled and garnished at home. Kits may be easily upgraded to include a bottle of Marmalade Mimosa or Bloody Mary too.
Bloody Mary Naan Roll Kit:– An at-home antidote to be enjoyed the morning after long-awaited get-togethers. Sore heads will be soothed, hungry bellies satisfied.
Dishoom House Chai Gift Set:– No morning in India starts without masala chai, and at Dishoom it's much the same. Now, we’re thrilled to share the blend we use in the cafés for at-home enjoyment. Dishoom House Chai is available as a tin or as part of a gift set, with two chai glasses, a tea strainer and two of Chef Naved’s favourite biscuit recipes (perfect for chai-dipping).
Dishoom IPAs:– Specially crafted by Mondo Brewing Company, our IPAs are brewed with Citra, Columbus, Galaxy and Pacifica hops to deliver the requisite aroma, fruity citrus notes and clean bitterness.
Dishoom House Chai:– The sort of spicy, sweet chai you will find at Bombay’s innumerable tapris (street stalls), normally poured with great dexterity and skill from arm's length into a small, stout glass.
Dishoom Gift Coins:– At the consent of her Majesty's Treasury, we have minted a Dishoom currency. Each coin is worth ten pounds sterling, and will let them do the choosing. E-vouchers are also available for instant delivery (the forgetful may be forgiven).
Dishoom Tea Towel:– Highest quality, large in size and sporting a rather lovely design. Ideal for keeping breads warm and will be kept for many years to come.
With each new café that we open, we write a story deeply rooted in Bombay history or culture. This story, known to us as the founding myth, informs all aspects of the restaurant’s design. We spend months researching the Bombay of the period and combing the city for the right furniture, both vintage and new. In a way, you walk across our thresholds into our stories.
Bedecked in their annual finery of baubles, tinsel and lights, our cafés are ready to receive you for your Christmas celebration. So too are our chefs, who have assembled a most excellent array of festive fare for your table.
Our soft launch will run from 27th November to 2.30pm on 5th December. And to express our gratitude for being among our first guests, all food can be enjoyed at 50% off across breakfast, lunch and dinner – yes, really.
Stop by any Bombay tapri (street stall), café, or home, and you will likely find yourself with a gently steaming glass of chai in hand. Before the invention of chai, Bombayites drank kadha, an ayurvedic remedy for coughs and colds made of boiled water and spices like cardamom, cloves and nutmeg. Eventually locals started adding tea leaves, milk, honey and sugar to their ‘kadha’. Chai was born.
