Review: Dum Biryani House

What?

This summer, Soho’s DUM Biryani House, have dived deeper into the coastal flavours of South East India, as they have launched a weekend brunch.

After lifting the lid on the humble biryani, Chef Founder Dhruv Mittal and his team are serving up dishes that showcase regional flavours of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana, sound tracked by their signature hip hop playlist.

Where?

187B Wardour St, Soho, London W1F 8ZB

The Vibes?

Located in a basement on Wardour street with Old School classic 80’s and 90’s hits playing in the background mixed in with modern Indian decor. The staff are so friendly and you feel comfortable straight away.

 

 

We ate & drank?

For drinks, brunchers can enjoy Dum’s Indian spiced rum punch made using Old Monk Rum, guava juice and pineapples, served in vast copper cauldrons to the table.

Starters:

 

Shredded Lamb Fry, Masala Quail Eggs     

Hyderabadi breakfast stack with sourdough, fenugreek pachadi, stir-fried lamb topped with spicy fried quail eggs

 

 

 

 

Pork Chorize                             

Portuguese chorizo stir-fried with garlic, ginger and Hyderabadi whole spices, served in a brioche bun

 

Main Course

Andhra Baby Chicken, Mustard and Coconut Chutney, Pickled Onion Salad              

Half baby chicken roasted in a dry masala rub, served with coconut and mustard seed chutney with pickled onion salad. One to get your hands dirty!

 

– This was soooo good! You must order it.

 

 

Roast Stuffed Aubergine, Ulavacharu dal, Steamed Rice                                 

Aubergine stuffed with peanuts and poppy seeds, roasted and served with wholesome horse gram dal and steamed rice

 

I also loved this- bit spicy but the rice and dahl bring down the level of spice. I wouldn’t advise ordering it as a main but more so as a side dish to have with the chicken.

 

Our Thoughts?

There is a trend in Indian brunches and we are loving it! The small plates concept is perfect as Indian can be so filling! We loved it and will definitely be back soon.
