Ever-expanding Indian restaurant chain Dishoom will be taking over Dinerama in Shoreditch in celebration of Eid al-Fitr this month.
Dishroom, which was established in 2010 and draws inspiration from the Irani cafes of Mumbai, will take control of Street Feast set up Dinerama – for the first time – on Tuesday 19.
An evening of festivities will mark the end of the Islamic month of Ramadan. Eid is celebrated by Muslims worldwide with a communal, dusk dinner known as an Iftar.
A special early evening supper
The group says:
“Dishoom will be bringing alive the traditions of Eid at Dinerama’s awesome East London venue, complete with live music performances from leading UK-based Pakistani singer Chand Ali Khan, mesmerising spoken word from the inimitable Sukina Pilgrim (one half of the brilliant hip-hop duo, Poetic Pilgrimage, pictured), plus a superb (and entirely halal) street-food lineup from Street Feast.”
Food on offer will include classics from Dishoom, as well as dishes from fried chicken pop-up Thunderbird, vegan Mexican food at Club Mexicana, bao buns at Yum Bun, and more.
Dishoom is well loved by Harden’s readers, and has a food score of four.
“My daughter in law (born in Delhi) says it reminds her so much of Bombay food – and that is really high praise!”
