Bottomless bubbly Indian brunch at Cinnamon Soho
Well, what I think is authentic anyway - I'm not Indian nor have I ever been there, but I love places like Dishoom and Talli Joe, neither of which have a korma in sight.
And so I think Brits are now realising that there's a lot more to Indian food than some of us had previously been led to believe, and yes, it can be a smashing brunch choice. Especially if you're brunching at 12 ergo it's essentially lunch.
Billed as "fresh, seasonal Indian cookery, with a quirky British twist," I was looking forward to visiting Cinnamon Soho to sample their new 'sparkling Sundays' offer of bottomless prosecco or mimosas with brunch.
It was quite dark for the middle of the day and as such the restaurant had more of a dinner than brunch vibe to me, but I liked the mismatched bulbs hanging from the ceiling and the random tandem bike on the wall.
The soundtrack to our brunch was somewhat eclectic - there was both Adele and salsa, but we enjoyed it.
Our food, however, came exceptionally quickly.
The menu is divided into parathas, Soho plates and sides. We weren't really sure how big anything was going to be but figured it best to err on the side of caution and order generously.
We got some greens on the side for, ya know, health and whatnot. They were fine.
We sipped our mimosas as we chatted and munched and the restaurant filled up.
my time in Malaysia. Yum.
Whilst it wasn't the best service I've ever had in a restaurant, the food really was faultless and at the end of the day, that's the most important part of a brunch in my opinion. And anyone who disagrees is, quite frankly, wrong.
Anna and I were guests at Cinnamon Soho but all opinions are my own.
