In 2010 Meat Club redefined the Breakfast. When I say redefined I really mean took it by the scruff of the neck, gave it a good shake and then created something that should be rated quadruple X and carry a Government Health warning.
First came Roast with what was described as Top Kill for your Arteries and was immense, so when the call went out to the Boisdale Of Bishopsgate they were understandably worried about how they could compete.
But oh they did compete. Take a look:
Yes that’s for breakfast, all before 9am and yes it’s a lot. So any of you city boys are wanting a marvelous breakfast in the City Mile – i’d suggest you do some polite groveling to the Manager, ask nicely and get yourselves some of this.
The starter if you can call it that for a Breakfast, of oysters, haggis and a bloody Mary was delightful. Enough for any man to start the day.
BUT and its a big but, because this is what came next, for each person. The plates are huge, make no mistake this is a lot of food. Click to view and its full glory.
The bone marrow fritter was divine, the bavette a treat, the black pudding amazing, the scotch egg scintillating. The galloon of orange juice to wash it down was very necessary. I think we might have been a little slow that day…
No wonder those large Scottish chaps can toss the caber if they’re eating this before a highland games. Immense.
