- Cold Shallow Ramen
- Tunisian Scramble
- House Granola
It was an amazing start to our brunch with the Cold Shallow Ramen. Stunningly presented, the tall bowl was topped with two halves of a beautiful soft boiled eggs paired with grilled charsiu. Digging in reveals a generous helping of cold ramen noodles cooked to a perfect al dente, offering up just a hint of chewiness and perfectly coated with an amazing sesame oil broth. This was well paired with a variety of juicy and meaty mushrooms, while the fresh spring onions and bean sprouts created amazing freshness.
We also enjoyed the Tunisian Scramble. The amazing chorizo crumb was scatters liberally across the plate and made for an exceptionally flavourful and appetising dish. Underneath, the scrambled eggs were soft and silky smooth, nicely paired with a slightly spicy Harissa sauce and served up on crunchy, buttery sourdough. Alongside sat some of the juiciest, sweetest roast cherry tomatoes topped with a tangy salsa verde. Just perfect.
We rounded off our meal with the House Granola. The vibrant yellow of the poached pear was simply stunning. Underneath, the granola was just so crisp and crunchy, and when paired with the creamy yoghurt and candied orange peel, created such an amazing textural diversity and complimentary flavours. Stunning.
