LONDON | The Blues Kitchen Shoreditch is often touted as London’s home of live blues and rock n’roll and we’ve enjoyed our fair share of fun nights on its dance floor. When a friend raved to us about its Sunday brunch offering, we had to check it out. We figured if they did food as well as they do live music, we were in for a treat.
The Blues Kitchen brunch offering ticks a lot of boxes: location, space, and selection. The venue is massive – we arrived about 11:00am and were able to get right in. It definitely started to pick up later in the day, but if you are looking for a place to remedy the previous night’s sins, this is the spot. The brunch menu is hugely varied, spilt up into four main sections consisting of brunch, mains, burgers, and salads. Whether you want to go healthy or the sinful route, there is an option for you.
We were craving more a traditional egg dish so we opted for two selections from the brunch segment. We enjoyed the American Breakfast (£9.50) which is complete with grilled pork sausage meat loaf, pancakes, eggs, dry-cured bacon, BBQ pit beans, fried green tomatoes and home fries with ranch dressing. Basically, your whole day’s nutritional requirements sorted. What can we say? It was excellent. We particularly enjoyed the sausage meat loaf.
On the other end of the spectrum, we went for the vegetarian friendly Healthy Breakfast (£9.50) consisting of poached eggs, heritage tomatoes, and grilled avocado on a sweet corn fritter with sautéed kale, pistachios, and goji berries. The dish was excellent, hitting high notes with unique flavor pairings and the super-food cherry on top.
The coffee was a bit lackluster but that won’t keep us from coming back. The service was as friendly as the venue is fun.
The Blues Kitchen has three locations across London: Camden, Shoreditch, and Brixton. We look forward to returning to brunch to check out more of the Blues Kitchen’s offerings, and trying some of their Texas BBQ that’s served at dinner.
