The wonderful thing about the MyFavouritePlace series is that it gives me a reason to meet up with people I always wanted to meet. Like Harriet. For over a year we've been collaborating in the Take 10 project, but never managed to meet. The reason for this might also be that Harriet is accomplishing the colossal task of running her wonderful blog Where Is Harriet and having a full time job. So I was all the happier when she agreed to meet me at Dishoom where we had a lovely chat, shared some Indian deliciousness and I could find out where she got that t-shirt from… because I want it!
My favourite place is… Dishoom London – a Bombay cafe in the heart of Covent Garden.
It's special because… my friend Reda and I meet here for dinner nearly every week - it's a ritual. The food is amazing, the staff are so friendly (and maybe know us by name now...) and they have created a real experience which is unlike eating anywhere else, and a cult following to go with it!
The best time to come is… for dinner and a cocktail.
Don't miss… the house black daal is just so good! With lots of garlic naan for dipping.
I couldn't part with… my topshop dinosaur t-shirt. I searched high and low to find it and it reminds me of being six and the total and all consuming obsession I had with dinosaurs back then!
My favourite city is… London of course! I could never get bored here - I am always turning a corner and discovering something new.
I love to shop at… Covent Garden is right around the corner from Dishoom and it has some lovely shops. Don't miss Kate Spade and Aubin and Wills on Floral Street and all the lovely little shops in Seven Dials.
My favourite website… I spend my life on bloglovin to the point where the number of blogs I follow is getting totally out of hand! I can't help it though - there are just so many amazing creative people out there!
