This Weekend - Dishoom and Maltby Street Market

On Saturday, the boy and I had a date day and kept with our plan to become breakfast people.

We headed to Dishoom in Covent Garden for the Bombay Breakfast Club. Oh my, it was awesome!

I started with a Brun Maska which is a hot buttered bun dipped in chai then headed onto the bombay Breakfast Bake:















The boy had a bacon naan roll followed by a fruit roomali:































The food was all delicious and I would heartily recommend breakfast at Dishoom. The only thing I would warn against is getting there as soon as they open at 10, they take a while to get ready for service.

We decided to check out the Maltby Street Market as recommended by Katie of What Katie Does.

Monmouth Coffee had a really cool, laid back feel with loads of people drinking outside:

















There was a really lovely selection of shops in the railway arches selling virtuously grown fruits and vegetables, meats, cheese, wine and beers.

































We bought some delicious sourdough bread from St John on 72 Druid Street which we later devoured with a baked Camembert:





















We also stumbled across Lassco which had some very interesting reclaimed and salvaged items. 

We loved the radiator graveyard:




















The cinema seats:
















And hatched a plan to create a showstopping breakfast bar in our one-day-when-we-can-afford-a-house kitchen with pommel horse bench!
















We finished our afternoon with a climb at The Arch which was a brilliant end to the day.
