Oh, how I wish I could celebrate Thanksgiving! It’s such a nice tradition! Of course, every holiday that involves cooking and eating large amounts of comfort food is worth celebrating, isn’t it?! This year I discovered that many London restaurants were offering a special Thanksgiving menu. So I’ve started selling the idea to my friends and, to be honest, it wasn’t very hard!
I chose The Breakfast Club, because I have been meaning to go there for years and their set menu seemed big enough (starter, main, dessert) and reasonably priced (£25).
I was worried the portions might be small, but on the contrary everything was served in such abundance that we all had leftovers in our plates! The turkey was tasty and there were many vegetables to choose from! I personally loved the corn bread, it tasted like cake!
Hot Apple Cider!
The end: pecan pie & ice-cream! It was great!
Negative comments about The Breakfast Club (Hoxton): it was very loud and; the music selection (electro) was not appropriate for a festive night and definitely off topic. The table was too small for 6 people: I was sitting at the head of the table and I pretty much couldn’t move my legs in the tiny space I had! Finally, the chairs are uncomfortable, but I guess they are supposed to create that “high school” look, so I will forgive them for it! I also wish they had espresso cups! Serving espresso in a water glass is #fail!
