Dishoom King’s Cross celebrates Eid al-Fitr

Poetic Pilgrims London pop up event food drink

Dishoom is marking the end of Ramadan with a food-filled celebration on Sunday 17 July, starring many of London’s top street food traders. Stands at Dishoom King’s Cross site will include Oli Baba (mmm, halloumi fries) and Bun Kabab’s delicious Pakistani street food. There’ll also be artisan gelato from Nonna’s. Dishoom’s famous house chai will also be served, while guests will be offered a selection of mithai (Indian sweets).

As well as this foodie bazaar, guests can have traditional henna designs painted on their hands by a mehndi-walli (henna artist), while facepainters will keep children entertained throughout the day. As Eid is a time for giving, young visitors will get the chance to delve into a lucky dip and take home a small gift to remember the day.

In addition, all four of Dishoom’s London sites are serving a new dish of slow-cooked lamb known as ‘paya’ during Eid al-Fitr.

The King’s Cross event will take place on Sunday 17 July at Lewis Cubitt Square, opposite Dishoom King’s Cross from 12N-4pm. Some drinks and snacks will be free of charge, but guests will need to bring cash for the street food stalls – all food is halal and no alcohol will be served at the event.
