Omelettes are a fantastic brunch, lunch or even dinner option – so simple, easy to make and very filling. Plus you can adapt it to your taste and what’s in season.
My daughter loves a cheesy omelette as a lunch option so we decided to join her by adapting the recipe to make it more tasty.
- sliced mushrooms – one pack is enough
- chopped spring onions
- finely chopped red chilli
- finely sliced garlic clove
- 2 beaten eggs
- grated cheddar cheese
- handful of rocket
Heat butter in a frying pan and cook the mushrooms until most of their liquid has evaporated. Add spring onion, chilli and garlic to the mixture and cook for a few minutes. Season with salt and pepper and put aside.
Wash the pan and add butter before pouring in the beaten eggs. Season and cook gently. When the omelette is almost set, sprinkle over the cheese then spoon over the mushroom mix until the cheese melts. Add the rocket and put onto a plate.
It seems like having brunch or breakfast in hotels is now the done thing in London! Hubbard & Bell London is the café/restaurant located inside the Soho House Group’s newest hotel – Hoxton Hotel, which confusingly, is located in Holborn. It’s very New York style with an open plan lobby – a perfect spot for creative types to work with their macs. Tucked at the back of the lobby is the Hubbard and Bell oozing a chilled diner feel with long wooden table, leather booths and white brick walls.
Instead of my usual french toast or the full english, I opted for something a little different – the sourdough pancakes with browned sugar and pineapple. My dining partner opted for the Eggs Benny. The portions were generous and the pancakes were really tasty. The menu also had lots of choices for pressed juice, and hot drinks!
This combination of food and drink was honestly heavenly. And rest of the menu looked so great, I will be back soon to try out more. The service was quick and there was a cool atmosphere.Hubbard & Bell is cosy, fun and good value.
I will be returning and if you are around Holborn and fancy a delicious breakfast then I highly recommend making a visit.
I love sushi but have often found that you don’t always get much choice when it comes to veg sushi….and if you do it’s either fast food style where you can choose what you want at Itsu or Wasabi or you get 6 of the same dishes at high end restaurants!
I read about Sticks’n’Sushi opening in Wimbledon in 2012 so added it to my list of places to try but never made it to Wimbledon. So was super excited to hear that they opened a branch in Covent Garden – Sticks n Sushi is Danish, where there are ten branches and it’s apparently the best sushi restaurant in Denmark!
The whole style is very Scandi chic – minimalistic, wooden, rustic brick walls and friendly staff who are very helpful at explaining how to order and what to order!
There’s something for everyone on the menu – classic cocktails with a Japanese twist, a huge selection of sushi and, for those who don’t like raw fish, yakitori sticks with meat, fish and vegetarian choices, salads and lots more to choose from. There’s a menu filled with different set platters including one for veggies if you are not sure what you want which is what we went for. Then you can just add on any extras you feel like.
We had the following dishes between the four of us:
- Mini maki de luxi with 4 different types of sushi/ebi rolls
- Greenkeeper with yasai sticks, hosomaki, edaname, nigiri, yakitori
- Spare ribs
- Yaki sticks
And of course the dessert was divine – little taster pots of:
- Matcha Tea ice cream
- Vanilla Creme Brulee
- Chocolate Fondant with hazelnut and caramel brittle
- White chocolate with sweet miso and popping corn
It’s a fun venue to enjoy platters of food and cocktails!
