From today, Brighton residents can enjoy a fix of finest Bombay comfort food, Dishoom drinks and other sundries at home, as Dishoom launch their very first delivery kitchen outside London. The Brighton kitchen will serve a menu of favourite Dishoom dishes, lovingly prepared by Dishoom’s chef-wallas using the same recipes and first-rate produce as the café kitchens. Guests can now have such culinary comforts dishoomed to their doors from 12pm to 10.30pm daily in most postcodes between Brighton Marina and Shoreham harbour, as well as Mile Oak, Patcham and very many neighbourhoods in between. To check eligibility for delivery and to place an order guests can visit https://delivery.dishoom.com.
The Dishoom delivery menu has been specially curated to ensure all food travels well, and includes café favourites such as Keema Pau, Chicken Ruby and House Black Daal. The menu offers plentiful options for vegetarians – enjoy Pau Bhaji, much-loved Mattar Paneer, Jackfruit Biryani and more – and vegans too, including Samosas, hearty bowls of Chole, first-class greens, and favourite pudding, Basmati Kheer. Dishoom’s chef-wallas have also been busy cooking up most special delivery-only dishes, including the newly-launched Kathi Rolls – an alternative to the humble lunchtime sandwich, tender morsels of chicken or paneer in makhani sauce are wrapped in soft wholewheat paratha along with green peppers, red onion and mint chutney, and served with lime-dressed Chilli Broccoli Salad. The menu also includes newest delivery dish, Pepper Lamb Curry – tender lamb with much black pepper, green chilli, garlic and ginger, cooked with red and yellow capsicums in top-notch masala sauce. Favourite Bombay sodas, Limca and Thums Up, are served alongside Dishoom’s Mango Lassi. All is packaged as sustainably as possible, using cardboard from sustainably managed sources, reclaimed and renewable sugar cane pulp packaging, and carbon-neutral PLA (a smart compostable bioplastic made from plants), all of which are recyclable once rinsed or compostable.
As in the restaurants, for each and every meal served, Dishoom donate a meal to a child that might otherwise go hungry. A meal for a meal. This pledge began in the cafés in 2015 during Ramadan and was made permanent at Diwali the same year. To date, with the kind support of their guests, Dishoom have donated over 9 million meals in partnership with two excellent charities, Magic Breakfast and Akshaya Patra. The team have committed to the same pledge for their delivery service, and for each meal served via Deliveroo, they donate a meal through Akshaya Patra, a charity in India which provides nourishing free school meals, meaning children are undistracted by hunger in the classroom, and ready to learn.
The Dishoom team are delighted to be bringing their menu of Bombay comfort food to Brighton and are hopeful that the new kitchen will allow them provide a little nourishment and joy to guests further afield. During the last lockdown, with the restaurants closed, the Dishoom team sought out new ways to bring people together over food and drink. Initially offering delivery from a number of their café kitchens, Dishoom moved a number of the team into brand-new delivery kitchens once the restaurants reopened in July. Not only has this move allowed the team to reach more guests nationwide, it has also helped to provide long-term security for their team. Dishoom have kept everyone’s jobs during this time and, through the delivery kitchens, have created an additional 50 roles in the company. They now dishoom culinary comforts direct to the doors of patrons from six delivery kitchens in London, as well as from the café kitchens in Edinburgh and Manchester. The Brighton delivery kitchen is Dishoom’s first outside London, and the team are delighted to be making themselves at home in the city, which attracted them with its diverse and inclusive feel and its absolutely first-class food scene.
