Not too interested in indulging in an English Breakfast, I sought out the Breakfast Club in London. All of my London friends said it was the must eat brunch spot and the line outside was my confirmation. Greeted by bright colors and a vibrant staff, we knew were in for a treat. Now we just had to figure out how many pounds to tip. Managing the conversion was only getting harder by the day.
They don’t offer mimosas so we were stuck with fresh orange juice. Feeling refreshed and sober, I prayed that the food will make up for it. We were in close quarters towards the back of the establishment but it wasn’t overbearing in the least. The closer to the kitchen, the sooner the food will get to us, right?! We started with a shared plate of the pancakes, that looked too good to pass up. Layered in vanilla cream and berries, it was perfectly made for two. We originally saw the dish over at another table which only solidified our order. A bit of a messy dish, these pancakes couldn’t stand a chance.
But, I wasn’t going to leave without ordering the chorizo hash. After all, the pancakes was to share and this, was not. What I loved most about the hash was the comfort it brought me during every bite. Heavy chunks of chorizo and plenty of colorful flavors danced around my plate and taste buds. The poached egg was as close to perfect as it could be. It broke apart over the dish and melted right into the potatoes.
This went on until we couldn’t consume anymore food. But one thing to know, is that The Breakfast Club is worth the wait. If you plan to go, be sure to download a currency converter app. Pretty sure we did end up tipping too much after all.
