London brunch review - Kopapa. One thing I wanted to mention here is Kopapa actually was the first business to follow me on Twitter and still it took me quite a long time to go back. My apologies for that, but hey – here we go – your review!

 

I have been a fan from my first visit onwards and I have also recommended the restaurant to colleagues for business dinners in a relaxed atmosphere. Kiwi-style rules on Monmouth Street :)

 

Kopapa from Maori translated to English means full or to be crowded – they apparently had a feeling that this place will be a star on the West End restaurant scene so they chose the perfect name from the beginning. I have never been here where there was no queue and I have been told on the phone that they are fully booked more than once.

 

When you arrive super-friendly staff welcomes you at the counter and their promise for a table is always well calculated time-wise. Table service is perfect right from the beginning and the menu is a mouth-watering constellation of dishes. Healthy ones like fruit salad and granola, bakery products or fry-ups make you smile. The most praised dish in the press has been the Turkish eggs – so, definitely give them a try!

 

The Bloody Marys are ordered within a second, the coffee is delicious (what else to expect from a Kiwi-influenced place?) and the dishes being served on the tables around us increase our craving for a yummy brunch.

 

First the “Bacon fry-up with grilled smoked bacon, sautéed buttered field mushrooms, slow roasted tomatoes, 2 poached eggs and buttered sourdough” refined with fresh avocado as a side dish arrives and gets two thumbs up. The bacon is grilled to its crispy perfection and the avocado rounds up the colour impression.

 

Next: “Kopapa’s hot smoked salmon on toast with spinach, 2 poached eggs & yuzu hollandaise”. When cutting the poached eggs yolk is running over the different ingredients adding its taste to create a spot-on brunch experience. Mean, bro!

 

And last but not least we dig into “Chorizo hash with 2 fried eggs, rocket, sriracha chilli sauce & crispy shallots” which is an ultimate taste sensation for itself. If you don’t like it too hot, just ask to add less of the chilli sauce and I’m sure this can be arranged.

 

It’s a shame that this time there is no more space for a sweet finish especially the “Peanut Butter Parfait” and the “Chocolate and sea salt caramel sundae, tamarind ice cream & popcorn” leave quite an impression behind.

 

It’s never too late to visit Peter Gordon’s paradise though – make sure you book well in advance, arrive with an empty stomach and be part of the gathering crowding that building where food is stored! Simply -

go for brunch, London!
