Kazan Kitchen is situated in the heart of Pimlico amongst an abundance of quirky thrift shops, healthy cafes and traditional pubs. A lovely area of South London and only a short walk from Victoria this is the perfect weekend spot for a bit of brunch and wander around the area, even on a miserable rainy Saturday in Feb!
Brunch has become a fast favourite of mine to catch up with friends double date style as it doesn’t seem to be as hard to co-ordinate in everyone’s busy lives and means the lads can still get off in time to watch the football! Something as a football widow you become well accustomed to checking the footy fixtures before making any weekend plans!! It also gives you the opportunity to go to super cool places without the hefty bill at the end of the meal because one glass of wine doesn’t turn into a bottle at 11am in the morning (or you’d hope not anyhow!).
Kazan Kitchen serves up traditional English breakfast combinations with all your favourite egg dishes like Benedict, Royale and Florentine. But what it also offers are a few Turkish breakfast twists that deliver different taste combinations and something a little more exciting. I ordered the vegetarian breakfast because I love halloumi (hellimi) and really wanted to try it topped with hollandaise sauce. However, not being a vegetarian I did order a side of bacon! Obviously!
If you love halloumi I’d definitely recommend this as I’d never have even thought to have it for breakfast before now but will be something I’ll be adding to my own home cooked breakfasts. The hollandaise was rich and creamy and sprinkled with paprika I almost thought I was back on a city break in Istanbul.
My boyfriend had the Eggs Turk which was similar to other poached egg, muffin and hollandaise combinations on regular breakfast menus but this came with Turkish sausage. Turkish sausage is a little like salami and had been grilled before topping the muffin with perfectly cooked runny eggs.
The restaurant was really busy with tables being filled as soon as they were vacated. Staff were pleasant and attentive but at the same time left you alone without rushing you along to settle up the bill and leave.
If you fancy a breakfast with a twist this is certainly one to try out.
