Brunch at Andaz Liverpool Street, London

Sometimes you just get a craving and it’s vitally important that that craving is fulfilled instantly if not before which is exactly what happened on Saturday night when I got a major hankering for brunch. I took to Twitter to see if anyone had any recommendations and was advised to try East Way at Andaz Liverpool Street. I used to work in the City and absolutely love it so I was 100% on board with this suggestion and made a booking for the following morning then and there.

Armed with the boyfriend, his camera and a serious appetite we arrived at Andaz Liverpool Street and were directed to East Way, the hotel’s New York style brasserie whose decor mixes NY’s East Village with East London. Menus perused I opted for a Go-Go Green fresh juice and Eggs Sanchez while Phil had an orange juice and The Big Breakfast. The Weekend Brunch is said to serve up a combination of traditional brunch classics along with some unexpected taste creations all of which tantalise the healthy, the hipster and the hungover (love this) and both my eggs and juice were a definite unexpected surprise.

My juice was so refreshing and I loved how it separated and needed a swirl to come together. Who’d have thought fennel was so delicious in a juice? And who knew you could even put it in a juice? I do now and I’m converted. But you ain’t seen nothing yet. Behold Eggs Sanchez and The Big Breakfast…

I only had it a few hours ago but I’d happily wolf down another round. Everything worked so perfectly together and the chorizo was a great addition to the poached eggs and hollandaise sauce, it really gave it extra flavour while the guacamole added a Mexican touch to the dish. It was a major holy guacamole moment.

I’m always hungry and I was starving arriving at East Way but I don’t think I’d ever be so starving that I’d be able to finish The Big Breakfast; it was HUGE. So huge in fact that the table next to us twice said “WOW, that is worthy of a picture. I hope you’re hungry.” Phil was. But it defeated him. It reminded me of something from Man vs Food but with a smaller enthusiastic crowd. In essence though The Big Breakfast was just a traditional English breakfast in a bun and when the menu has some quite unique dishes (eggs with curried potatoes, anyone?) it would make more sense to try something a little different.

Before we launched into the feasts the waitress told us to help ourselves to the complimentary bread and pastries which were so beautifully laid out on the far side of the restaurant. I waited to have the eggs first then finished off with a mini croissant and pain au chocolat and if I’d had room I would have had some of the fresh bread too. I love that the bread and pastries were complimentary along with the brunch because it’s rare that that’s the case and being charged £3 for a slice of bread is, in my opinion, completely ridiculous so thank you Andaz for being generous and decent.

Alongside the bread and pastries were perfectly ripe vine tomatoes, bacon, grains and a selection of olives, capers and pickles. And at the end of the bar was a Bloody Mary interactive station.

I had a craving and East Way at Andaz Liverpool Street looked after it in a big way. There weren’t a whole load of people in the restaurant when we were there so the atmosphere lacked slightly but the service was quick, the food creative and plentiful, and the Bloody Mary interactive station genius.

    The Big Breakfast looks rather spectacular! I stayed at Andaz years ago before living in London and really liked the rooms, but haven’t eaten there before.

      I’d love to stay there. If the food is this good I bet the rooms are fantastic!
