Diwana Bhel Poori House on Drummond Street
Last month I had a quick slap-up dinner with my friend Ari before seeing the amazing band Slaves. We decided to try one of the vegetarian Indian restaurants on Drummond Street. We had previously been underwhelmed by Chutneys so we decided to give Diwana Bhel Poori House a go.
We started with Bhel-Poori and Bhajya…
The Bhel-Poori was a delightful mixture of textures and flavours. Crunchy crushed fried poori and puffed rice contrasted with soft cooked potato, onion and chilli, all bathed in a delightful sweet and sour sauce. I could have ordered another portion!
The bhajya (or bhajis as I normally see it written) were perfectly crispy and crunchy on the outside and soft and satisfying on the inside.
Following our delicious starters, we shared a Thali as a main and it did not disappoint.
Filled with a generous quantity of food, the Thali contained three delicious curries, a creamy and tasty dhal, more bhajya, puris and rice. Everything tasted exceptional!
I would definitely head back to Diwana Bhel Poori House and recommend that you do too!
P.S. Why doesn’t London have a 100% vegan Indian restaurant??
