Another weekend, another brunch.
This time we chose The Globe, a nice place that is expats friendly, nice atmosphere, nice people. We usually go there for the summer quizzes, but we will get there when we get there. As bookstore, don't expect many differences between the books they sell here or the books sold in other big libraries. But they have lecture time, when somebody reads from a book. Being Sunday, it was targeting the children, so they listened to a story in a beautiful British English, that made you get goose bumps.
For brunch we had a mostly american/english breakfast offer, so we chose from eggs, ham, ham and eggs, meat..light stuff I may say.
The food was good, service was fast, prices ok. We recommend the place for people that are not very picky, want simple but tasty food and a small bill at the end :). Nevertheless, as we are awesome girls, we had some complaints:
- food came before the drinks
- presentation lacked some colour..some je ne sais quoi...to attract the visual sense..
Here are some examples:
two eggs on a tortilla, refried beans, cheddar cheese, salsa and sour cream, served with toast and hash browns
two poached eggs with a choice of grilled ham or crispy american bacon, on a toasted breakfast roll, topped with a rich home-made hollandaise sauce, served with hash browns
and last but not least.. with extra ham...
ham with diced bell peppers, tomatoes, onions and cheddar cheese
(sorry but it seems it insists on staying on one side...)
So...what do you think is missing from all these pictures?
