Breakfast is probably my favourite meal of the day so when we went to London I was eager to try Eggbreak. It’s located in Notting Hill Gate about 2 minutes from the tube station and was only a few stops away from us. We enjoyed it so much the first time we went back again. Not something I normally do but there were other things on the menu that I was really interested in trying. They serve breakfast all day long from 8am in the morning.
I started with Shakshuka which is one of my go-to egg dishes to make at the weekend. Recipe here. It came with some crusty bread for dipping. They said it was spicy but tbh, I didn’t get much spice from it. Not that I cared, it was still extremely flavourful.
And because I’m gluttonous, I ordered the Cornflake French toast with caramelised banana, blueberries and brown butter as well. They were ridiculously sweet but that was to be expected. The cornflakes idea is a nice touch and gave the toast an extra nice crispy texture.
LP had the McMuffin – sausage patty, American cheese, Fried egg and hot sauce. A fancier take on the McDonald’s classic. This is the ideal hangover dish.
The following day I went for Turkish Eggs. I had seen someone the day before getting them and they looked gorgeous. Possibly the nicest breakfast dish I’ve ever eaten. I normally hoover food into me but I took my time to savour this. Two perfectly cooked poached eggs with a dill yoghurt and chilli butter sauce. It came with a cheese toasty that was perfect for dipping into the sauce.
LP had the Smashed avo with poached eggs, salsa verde and breakfast radish with bacon. He is now currently saying he’s having ‘smashed avocado’ with every meal and it’s driving me mental.
And of course, we got another ‘dessert’ breakfast. Pancake stack with bacon crumble, berries and maple caramel sauce.
Another incredibly sweet dish. We found it hard to finish the whole thing. The maple caramel sauce was gorgeous and it’s something I’m going to add to my own pancakes at home.
Would I go back to Eggbreak?
What did I not like?
Nothing, I’d prefer if it was closer, obviously!
