Eastender brunch at 100 Hoxton

Visiting my son James in London gives us a great excuse to find a new exciting place to meet up. This time for brunch in the East end. These days it’s less sausage fry up and more sourdough toast with avocado salsa.

100 Hoxton (on Hoxton street – no prizes!) gives off an industrial chic attitude.

There is a patchwork of up and coming areas in the somewhat edgy Shoreditch. So, brilliantly unique cafes, restaurants and bars can be found flexing their muscles here.

Retrospectively, I’m rather disappointed to have walked along a real East end market not to be yelled ‘apples and pears’ at (you do in Guildford for crying out loud!).

Brunch at 100 Hoxton is an easy going affair. Seated straight away an appealing glass of cucumber water is poured for everyone.

This is readily topped up throughout our brunch.

The menu was a good one, full of weekend delights with a bit of a twist. Asian flavours appear throughout.

While we wait for Rowan (James childhood friend) I take a look around.

The bar has a great reputation and the brunch menu contains a few tempting boozy choices.

We’ve know Rowan since he was a tweenager (coming round after school for supper and PlayStation). He’s now a family friend and one of the best story tellers you’ll ever meet.

The boys are at ease with each other in a way you are when you have roots with someone, and we take great joy in hearing the news and catching up.

Drinks are smashed together.

This refreshing homemade lemonade was tart enough to feel grown up.

We all agreed the coffee was reeeally good.

We were happy to munch on a delicious plate of sourdough toast with avocado salsa while we decided on our main plate. If you do eat brunch here make sure you get some, it’s very moreish!

James’s Bloody Mary was a good pick-me-up and went down smoothly.

The kitchen is open plan and is both in-trend and reassuring. Just one chef this morning, but doing a stoic job.

Koroke Korean croquette – poached eggs, chilli dressing, crispy bacon, cheese sauce. Served to James who loved it.

Spiced Sea Bass Kedgeree poached egg, crispy onion. Rowan and I both ordered this. A little dry but wonderful Asian flavours.

Hubby ordered the ‘daddy’ of breakfasts, the 100 Hoxton Big Breakfast pork belly, spring onion hash, fried eggs, tomato & avocado salsa, mushrooms, toast, jalapeno dressing.

The plates are generous and flavoursome. Amazing value for money and we all tucked in hungrily.

The morning cocktails are popular here and for good reason, they were extremely drinkable!

Espresso Martini vodka, espresso, cherry heering, frangelico.

I’m not quite sure how traditional having dessert at brunch is, but I’m so glad we did. They were incredible.

Here we have the Chocolate Ganache Cake with Parsnip ice cream and a bowl of amaaazing 100 Hoxton ice-cream (chocolate coconut and banana).

and here some Panna Cotta lime, mango, candied chilli and a very pretty Yoghurt Berry Mess.

So pretty here’s a close up…

All too soon the boys head off, but with promises to meet up again soon. Brunch is a new tradition for us Brits. I love the casual occasion it creates.

Brunch at 100 Hoxton has it’s own exciting identity and serves a less American brunch than most. Make it an excuse to catch up with those you care for – cheers!
