It was a typical Sunday.
After a night out at Covent Garden’s Top Secret Comedy Club (if you’re up for a good laugh, I can’t recommend it enough), I hurled myself out of my bed to begin a Sunday morning just the way I like to:
On Camden High Street is The Blues Kitchen, a live music venue and restaurant offering deliciously exciting American soul food.
With no reservation option on a Sunday, we turned up with three rumbling bellies and were pleasantly surprised to be seated straight away.
Dim lighting, soft upbeat music and industrial decor made for the perfect Sunday morning chilled-out vibe.
Over tea, juice and coffee that comes served with hot milk in a small quirky glass bottle, we pondered the menu.
We settled on two Huevos Rancheros and the American Breakfast.
On lightly fried crispy corn tortillas comes two fried eggs topped with chorizo, beans, cheese and salsa, with a pot of perfect guacamole.
^Feast your eyes on that!
It was so good I was upset when it was over.
The American Breakfast was an absolute corker.
Buttermilk pancakes, eggs, bacon, beans, potatoes and toast, it lacked nothing.
It was huge!
So we all dived in.
Open late every night, The Blues Kitchen hosts DJs and live rhythm & blues music seven nights a week. Have a look here for all its exciting music events over the summer.
Definitely a must-visit, whether opting for brunch, lunch, dinner or just a drink and a dance, I am positive you won’t leave hungry or disappointed.
And if East London’s more convenient, The Blues Kitchen has more recently found home in Shoreditch, address here.
Where have you been brunch-ing this weekend?
