New vegan brunch spot for London
This October Club Mexicana at The Spread Eagle, London’s first 100% vegan pub, will launch their brand new Mexican-Californian brunch, kicking off weekends with the likes of chilaquiles, chick’n & waffles, and brunch cocktails every Saturday and Sunday.
Inspired by founder Meriel’s travels through Mexico City, Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York, and a stint living in Melbourne, where brunch is a formative part of the weekend, the menu will include dishes packed with flavours from the sunshine cities. Mains will feature: ‘Huevos Rancheros’ with scrambled ‘eggs’, Mexican ‘chorizo’, black beans, avocado and salsa verde on a grilled paprika tortilla; and – Mexico City favourite – chilaquiles: fried corn tortillas drenched in salsa roja, roasted pepper queso and sour cream, topped with pickled jalapenos. Club Mexicana’s infamous chick’n’ & waffles with chilli infused maple syrup are making a comeback, and signature tacos are getting a breakfast twist with combos including fried potato and ‘chorizo’ topped with avo and sour cream. Meriel has also created a host of snacks like the deep friend avocado with a miso lime dipping sauce, and those with a sweet tooth will not be left out with deep fried ice cream; warm chilli-chocolate brownie with peanut and caramel sauce and taco millefoglie with lemon curd, blueberries and vanilla whipped cream.
The Spread Eagle will be serving up brunch cocktails at the bar, including their famous Spread Eagle Bloody Mary made with horseradish infused vodka, the Avocado Colada, with pineapple, avocado, white rum, coconut milk and lime, and the Coconut Tequila Shrub with coconut tequila, grapefruit, cider vinegar and soda. Sherri has also devised a selection of Kombucha cocktails from the Passion Fruit Mimosa with passion fruit puree, Prosecco and passion fruit JARR Kombucha, to the Beetroot Punch; beetroot shrub, dark rum and ginger JARR Kombucha.
The Spread Eagle co-founder Luke says ‘We’ve been itching to get brunch off the ground since we opened – we’ve always wanted to pub to be a place for all occasions, so we cannot wait to open our doors and welcome those seeking refuge from a hangover with a taco or two, or those looking for a few drinks with friends to kick off their weekend!’
‘Our style of cooking lends itself to brunch and it’s been so much fun creating a whole new menu with lots of exciting dishes – chilaquiles are definitely a winner! Pull up a stool at the bar and order them with a bloody mary I can’t think of a better way to spend a Saturday’, says Meriel.
Brunch will be available between 12pm-4pm on Saturdays and Sundays from the 6th of October, 2018. For reservations please visit https://www.thespreadeaglelondon.co.uk
