Five try the New Brunch Menu at Haché.
After an invigorating swim in Tooting Lido (the adults that is) we were ready for our Hache brunch. Everyone was impressed with the variety of food choices.
We had a selection of drinks and smoothies. The Clean Green is a mixture of apple, cucumber, kale, mint and lime. It was refreshing but didn’t have the usual zing and, in my opinion, needed more apple and could benefit from some celery or a hint of ginger to give more flavour and body. The Red Head consisted of cranberry, berries, lime, banana and was enjoyed. The Banana Berry Smoothie was especially good and was thick and creamy. For those in need of caffeine Haché also offer a full selection of coffees, and a skinny cappuccino hit the spot.
On to the food!
The poached eggs and smashed avocado on sourdough was beautifully presented with a good helping of avocado on 2 crisp slices of sourdough. The eggs were cooked perfectly and oozing with golden yolk. The only disappointment was the food was a little cold.
The Breakfast Burger was a serious undertaking – beef patty, bacon, fried egg, sweet potato rosti and coffee ketchup all served up in a brioche bun. The verdict was that this was a very satisfying burger, with a well-cooked egg and tasty bacon. The sweet potato rosti contributed some spicy notes, and the whole thing was brought together well in the brioche bun with ketchup.
The ‘Full Riviera’ consisted of kale, avocado, halloumi, 2 poached eggs and sourdough. Again, the eggs were perfectly cooked but the kale was slightly rubbery. The halloumi was absolutely divine and as a fond halloumi lover, this got a big thumb’s up from teenage daughter. Overall this was a great veggie option but unfortunately, this dish was cold too.
Last but by no means least was the ‘Full Canadian’, Hache’s signature brunch offering comprising fried eggs and bacon on a mound of skinny fries, drenched in melted truffle cheese and Madeira jus and served in a bowl. This would be the perfect comfort food after a big night out – plenty of carbs to soak up any excesses from the night before along with the breakfast staples of bacon and eggs.
So what was our overall verdict? Four clean plates and no need for any more food until the evening tells its own story. If you’re looking for a contemporary twist on some classic brunch options, then check out Haché’s new brunch menu.
