A few weeks back we took our little sister and some of her friends to our favourite brunch place in Clapham Old Town, Del’Aziz, and we crossed our fingers that they’d all love it as much as we do… and the result? They adored it too! Hooray! Don’t you love it when that happens? There’s nothing worse than when you go on about somewhere you love – Five Guys – and people hate it? It makes me question whether or not I should be friends with these people, what about you!?
Anyway let’s take a moment and discuss the delicious food of Del’Aziz. First off, if you walk past their window you’ll be assaulted by an amazing array of scrumptious looking cakes, including meringues that are the size of my face! Really there is something for everyone in that display and I don’t know how I’d ever make a choice, hence why I steer clear of the cakes! Opposite the cakes you have the most amazing deli counter with salads and quiches and wondrous sandwich fillings, all with a middle-eastern/eastern European twist.
Now to the food, I’ve tried a number of things off the menu including scrambled eggs with mushrooms, the poached eggs on toast and the eggs Florentine, all of which taste amazing. As for the other items – the berber pancakes, the egg and bacon bap, the muesli and The Frying Pan, they all look unbelievably good. I just need to try them all sometime soon I think… It’s most definitely one of those places where it takes four hours for you to make a decision on what to eat. But one thing you always have to have is a smoothie – like the one below which is called the Monkey Shake, Packed full of banana, orange and blueberries it’s the best way to start a weekend!
Have you ever been to Del’Aziz and if so what did you have, what should I try next time? Or is there a new place you’d suggest I try in London town? We’re all ears!
– Happy brunching, Fi. xxx
