Brunch is always a good idea!
It’s been a while since I did a foodie review, I have missed it and apologies but since I have joined Weight Watchers I have been a domestic goddess, messing up my kitchen and being creative with my presentation skills. However, one occasion which will drag me away is brunch…ahhh a good old brunch.
One of my favourite parts of London is Westminster, tucked away around the corner from the Mall (Good Morning Your Majesty!) is Chutney Mary. It’s also opposite Kingsman x Mr Porter, the suit tailor which served as the inspiration for Matthew Vaughn’s blockbuster movie Kingsman: The Secret Service. They even proudly display the famous orange jacket in the window.
I enjoy brunch, it’s one of my favourite ways to spend a weekend, especially in a great location such as this. If you arrive early there is plenty of parking available and if choosing to go by tube, Green Park is just around the corner.
The decor is refreshingly light and spacious, it’s glamorous. A live artist provides a relaxed ambience and the staff are friendly. The menu options are plentiful and cater for all.
Of course, the first and most important order requirement was bubbles, champagne to be exact.
Now to the stars of the show:
SPICED EGGS BENEDICT
This delightful dish is served with green chilli hollandaise and a Burford brown egg leaving a spirited kick to your taste buds. A perfect starter and with it being served on half a toasted muffin it isn’t too filling.
LAMB CHAPLI PAU SLIDERS
Served with Goan home baked pau bread, chapli (a Pashtun-style minced kebab) burger and Kaunda ketchup. A damn tasty dish, aromatic and moderately spiced. A slight kick to it again but a superb way to prepare the taste buds for the mains!
MOPLA EGG MASALA
Served with paratha, three curried Burford brown eggs, a local Kerala lunch (a state on India’s tropical Malaga’s Coast). It’s a creative and authentic dish. Pretty filling too!
AFGHANI CHICKEN TIKKA
I love how sophisticated this dish looks. Served with fennel, cardamom and Himalayan mint the chicken was succulent, browned and cooked to perfection. Lightly spiced with a delightful tang made every mouthful wanting more.
It was served with a jacket potato and I don’t know about you but I can’t have an Indian feast without naan bread!
DATE AND WALNUT KULFI
Now the piece de resistance was the kulfi, this is popular frozen dairy dessert. I’m talking creamy, elaborate, enticing, melt in your mouth stuff here! It’s one of those divine, eyes closed, mmmm moments. A naughty more-ish dish and one I highly recommend.
Weekend brunch is served between 12pm and 2:45pm with two courses £30 and three courses £34.
Using all my extra weekly Weight Watcher points to enjoy brunch without worrying made it all the worthwhile and I still managed to lose weight at weigh in this week!
I think that deserves another glass of bubbles!
