A recent work trip to London gave us the opportunity to visit some great eateries. On our last day we found ourselves queuing for the ultimate morning cuisine at The Breakfast Club in Spitalfields. The retro-modern décor, the crazily cool staff, the buzzing atmosphere, all helped to make this a great eating experience. But let’s be honest, it’s all about the food. Johnny got the most quintessentially British breakfast with a slap-up full English. There was A LOT. If you want a big breakfast, this is the one for you. The fried potatoes definitely make it a good hangover cure and the black pudding was the best we’ve had. What more is there to say… a proper hearty breakfast.
Drink recommendation: Joe’s Ever-So-English Breakfast Tea
Sophie went a little more off piste with avocado, chorizo and a poached egg on toast. This slightly more Spanish breakfast was incredible. The avocado was half mashed or ‘smashed’ up with garlic, lemon juice and finely diced chilli. When eaten with the egg and the chorizo it was both light and sumptuous, refreshing and hearty, healthy but decadent!
Drink recommendation: Black filter coffee
Finally Danny had a very luxurious looking Eggs Benedict. The addition of ham hock was the highlight. It added a gorgeous texture to the thick velvety hollandaise, which was mopped up with mouth-watering fried potatoes. The toast was crispy enough to take the soft egg and sauce and overall it was a brilliant twist on a classic.
Drink recommendation: Freshly squeezed orange juice
