You know how much I love a brunch. I mean, who doesn’t? It means you have time for a lie in, a gym session AND you are still in time to get the glorious breakfast foods that you wouldn’t have the time to eat during the weekdays.
For Astrid’s birthday this year we went to the famous Bad Egg for a boozy Saturday brunch. I was so excited as I have been meaning to go here for ages. For £35 you get 3 different dishes PLUS bottomless drinks for 2 hours! Please tell me how that doesn’t sound appealing.
Our server was absolutely hilarious. He was loud and funny and we just thought the service was fabulous because of him.
I started off with a Bloody Mary (which was AMAZING!) and continued on the meal with the house prosecco on the bottomless menu which was actually quite nice. I was very happy with the drink situation – absolutely worth the bottomless brunch choice.
On the menu you are able to choose 3 different plates. I chose the buffalo rib tips (served with spicy Buffalo sauce & blue cheese mayo), pulled pork, beans & kimchi on toast (slow cooked pork, baked beans & kimchi on sourdough toast), and the pancake with bacon and maple syrup.
The kimchi pulled pork with beans on toast was sensational – not just to look at – but also all the different flavours went very well together. I recommend this one definitely.
The buffalo rip tips weren’t but favourite but I didn’t dislike them. They were just a tad bit over cooked so they were a bit hard and I couldn’t really taste the meat but they were also a tad bit too saucy, in a overbearingly salty and sour way that made my eyeballs twitch just a tad. If you enjoy an eyeball twitch – this is the thing to order. Otherwise – don’t.
Then last but not least, they put down the plate of what seemed to be a mini crepe (not the fluffy buttermilk pancake I had imagined) that had unfortunately died a tragic death by drowning in a sea of maple syrup (RIP) with two bacon rashers to cover up the awful murder scene, and my face dropped. And no, unfortunately it didn’t taste any better than it looked. Just don’t order it if you go.
The mac and cheese balls and the hash that my friends had ordered looked great and also were raved about highly – So I’d probably try these next time.Overall it was a really fun meal out and a great atmosphere. A fabulous place for a brunch with a group of friends, as long as you don’t take the food too seriously.
