Fried Chicken, Egg & Croissant Waffle
Moroccan Eggs & Sobrassada Toast
Avocado & London Feta on Toast with Poached Eggs
I think it's pretty clear how much I love brunch, most of my recent reviews have been breakfast-come-lunch hybrids. I want to say that all this hard work (eating) is for the sake of my readers as I track down the best brunch in London but let's be honest, I'm just being greedy.
This time Foxlow is my restaurant of focus and I only have good things to report back. I was gutted when I missed the soft launch at the Balham branch which isn't too far from Wimbledon as I do love a 50% off treat. Nevertheless I finally managed to visit a few months ago when a much need girly catch up in a somewhat central London location (Clerkenwell) was needed.
I always knew I was going to have the fried chicken and croissant waffle option and I was not let down. Chicken is tricky, it's quiet often overcooked rendering it tough and dry but my meal couldn't have been further from this description. The chicken was succulent on the inside with a delightful crisp from the batter on the outside. The waffle, a pressed croissant, was perfect (not too stodgy) and combined with the runny fried egg and heavenly rich sausage gravy this was an incredibly delicious, indulgent meal.
The baked egg were very tasty with a rich tomato sauce and perfect runny yolks, plus the large portion of tomato bread on the side was much appreciated. The mac n cheese was some of the best I've had (rich and creamy) and I've been told the avocado and feta on toast was great too. I didn't have dessert on this occasion but you can't possibly go wrong with a salted caramel and chocolate mousse combo.
All-in-all Foxlow really hit the brunch time spot. The food is decent value with many dishes being generously sized and under a tenner plus the quality of the cooking is excellent. The Clerkenwell branch is a much appreciated haven away from the noise of other popular zone 1 destinations and it's made me want to pop in for a work lunch or early dinner very soon.
