My favourite meal of the day is brunch, hands down, always a winner. I just love how much you can eat because it's technically 2 meals in one, right? Ha! Anyway, a good friend of mine recommended I check out Sunday in Barnsbury, so I did, and errhmahhgahhhd I'm in love.
My other half, Fabz and I got up pretty early on a Saturday morning and arrived at 10:30am to find a queue had already started to form. Clearly we didn't get up early enough. 15 minutes later, a table was ready and we shuffled our way to a tiny table at the back being careful not bump anyones head, chair or table. Not an easy feat given the small space, which is simple and neither impressive or disappointing. It was super busy (good sign I suppose) but most importantly, it smelt delicious!
Deciding what to choose from the menu was pretty difficult, it all seemed so tasty. I loved the sound of everything on the menu. Looking at the tables around us didn't make it any easier either; A tower of sweet, plump buttermilk pancakes swimming in maple syrup, perfectly done french toast slathered in salted caramel sauce, and of course the generous servings of the dishes with poached eggs on top! Do I go for sweet or savoury? The options were too good to pass on on the latter and being a savoury person, I had to stick to my guns.
I went for the spiced lamb flatbread, yoghurt, harissa and houmous with poached eggs (left, £10.50) and it was a flavour bomb that started a party in my mouth! Crispy but tender pieces of lamb, the flatbread was soft in the middle, perfect amount of heat in the harissa with thick creamy yoghurt to balance out the heat. You know when you just don't want your food to finish? Yeah, I was having one of those moments. Fabz went for the corn fritters with smoked salmon, avocado, tomatoes and yoghurt with poached eggs (£11). It was fresh and so delicious, everything just went together really well. This little gem of a place served me one of the best brunches I've had in a long time.
If you're looking to try out a new brunch spot for yourself, I highly recommend Sunday. It's ALL about the food here. I can't wait to go back again for (a sweet?) brunch or even try out their lunch menu.
