London brunch review - Bishopsgate Kitchen. It’s Sunday. And the sun is shining. And it is November. So, I would say the odds are on my side ;) Due to business travels and a weekend trip to Rome I hardly had the time to follow my taste buds around London in order to find some extraordinary brunch spots for you.

 

To enjoy the blue sky and 10+ degrees I walk over to Spitalfields, have a look at (not around) the shops and without bags in my hands I arrive at my destination – “Bishopsgate Kitchen”. As part of the Benugo group they offer foodliciousness around the clock. No matter if you fancy breakfast when you work in the area around Liverpool Street, brunch at the weekends, a quick fix lunch for the stressed City Boy, drinks or dinner – they are there to help you out.

 

Upon entering you are already caught up by the Serrano ham, the open kitchen and the many bottles of red. My favourites of the interior are the toasters on the tables and the jars filled with badges you can grab. I admit they are a weird feature, but hey – it adds a little extra.

 

The service is a bit slow and the cappuccino is not my all-time favourite especially because it is served without a spoon. I don’t have a sweet tooth, but I’m wondering how people would manage to stir their coffee. Wait till they receive the cutlery? Hope that they eat something what they need a spoon for? Ask? ;)

 

The one-page brunch (served from 10am – 5pm) menu embraces all dishes you expect to help you either wake up or cure a hangover. Muesli, eggs in different styles and even an Angus beef burger turn choosing into a time-consuming exercise. Till today I regret I didn’t go for the “Chorizo hash, poached duck egg, spinach & Manchego cheese”. Doesn’t it sound awesome? And pictures of it on Instagram also do look awesome… Let alone taste awesome? Well, this is happening in my fantasy though, BUT… a New Year’s resolution is to go back and stuff my face with it :)

 

The price and the early hours let me have my choice of dish in abstinence of a Bloody Mary which comes at £7,50 per indulgence. The “Scrambled eggs, smoked salmon & truffle oil on sourdough toast” PLUS roasted Portobello mushrooms even out the missing vodka morning glory – it is filling, tasty, greasy (but in a good way) and looks beautiful.

 

Since I chose to sit at the bar along the glass front I can wallow in vice people watching during reading my book and eating. It is a quiet Sunday morning – exactly what everyone needs in this hectic city to get ready for another week.Come on, take some time for yourself and -
