Match of the week
Gyozas and kombucha
One of the best discoveries of our recent weekend in Bridport in Dorset was a brilliant small restaurant called Dorshi. You might easily miss it as it’s down an alley off the high street but seek it out. (The alleyway is just to the side of The Bull hotel)
The Asian-inspired menu is in two parts - dumplings and what they rather nicely refer to as ‘not dumplings’ - but their speciality is gyozas with different types of filling. Being unable to decide we went for the tasting plate but all went really well with Real Kombucha’s Royal Flush I’d ordered, rightly anticipating a bit of a boozy evening watching England play Ukraine.
Kombucha, for those of you who are not familiar with it, is a non-alcoholic fermented tea and Royal Flush is made with first flush Darjeeling. It’s carbonated so tastes like a sparkling wine though with a fruitier, slightly peachy flavour in the case of the Royal Flush (some kombuchas are flavoured with other ingredients like ginger and lemon). You can buy it in Waitrose for £8 a litre bottle or direct from their website for £48 a pack of six. Or even from Amazon which has the smaller bottles.
Anyway it’s a great option in a restaurant whether they have dumplings or not.
