The thing with living in London: when it’s raining we moan in the sight of the thick grey clouds, when the sun’s finally shining and hot as hell we groan whilst wiping away the sweat with the back of our hands.
Saturday went back to one of those gloomy, cloudy days, with a sprinkle of rain and a blanket of grey clouds across the sky. What lightened the mood was a delightful brunch at Plum + Spilt milk, a classy all-day British restaurant tucked inside the modern interiors of the Great Northern Hotel, right next to Kings Cross station.
It was my second time here, yet the lovely lights and art on the walls still amazed me as I walked up the stairs to the restaurant.
We sat down by a glossy black table, and were greeted by a complimentary pair of peach bellinis.
The brunch menu was comprised of a rather long list of classic British breakfast dishes: eggs benedict, full English, kedgeree… you name it. Along with it was a detailed drinks list, from where we ordered two of their fabulous cocktails.
We went for a duo of lobster benedicts, with the coral river of egg yolks running down the warm muffin alongside the wobbly hollandaise sauce. The chunks of lobster meat were fresh, and added that touch of luxury to our meal.
The brioche eggy bread was a recommendation from our friend, and came inch thick, topped with caramelised bananas, pecans and dribbling in a beautiful salted caramel sauce.
If you are looking for a brunch in modern luxury complete with a good drinks list, this is the place. Definitely go for the lobster benedict!
