Breakfast is one of the most important meals of the day, and it’s becoming increasingly more creative & delicious everyday. We take a look at some of the leading Breakfast kings for ‘National Breakfast Week’.
Bunnychow was crowned ‘Most Innovative Breakfast UK’ in 2015 and is still a firm London favourite one year on. Their ‘Full English’ Breakfast bunny is made up of sausage, salsa beans, a fried egg, bacon and black pudding, packed into their special Bunny loaf.
This year, Bunnychow released a spectrum of healthy loaves to reflect the new year’s health and wellness outlook. Featuring gluten-free bread, charcoal brioche, protein wholemeal and matcha green tea white bread, the new loafs coupled with wholesome fillings provide guilt-free options.
Caravan, Kings Cross is one of our favourite breakfast spots in London. Their breakfast menu consists of fresh flavours and perfectly balanced flavours. Like spice? Try the Jalapeno corn bread with fried eggs, black beans and guindilla peppers. Or if your looking for a lighter option, their courgette and corn fritters is equally as delicious.
Dishoom is renowned for its authentic Bombay food and quirky restaurant interiors. Their breakfast/brunch menu has proven popular across the city but there’s one dish in particular that seems to grab everyones attention – The Breakfast Naan.
Each naan is freshly baked, smothered in cream cheese, chilli tomato jam and fresh herbs and filled with either sausage, bacon, egg (or all three). Other dishes include the Kejriwal (two fried eggs on chilli toast) and the Keema Per Eedu (spicy chicken keema studded with delicate morsels of chicken liver, topped with two runny-yolked fried eggs and sali crisp chips).
Duck & Waffle
Duck & Waffle doesn’t just offer spectacular views over the city, it also has 24 hour service and an interesting Breakfast menu. Their signature dish is, of course, their Duck & Waffle. A confit duck leg served on a soft, fluffy waffle and topped with a fried duck egg – a dish we definitely recommend you try!
Other highlights include the Duck Egg En Cocotte, the ‘Full Elvis’ and the spicy ox cheek doughnut.
The German Gymnasium is the newest addition to Kings Cross’ restaurant scene. They’re serving up German classics such as the Münchener Weibwurst and the GG breakfast. If you’ve got more of a sweet tooth, there is a apple strudel smothered in vanilla sauce.
