The Providores

Breakfast joy in Marylebone

The Providores is a relaxing fusion restaurant in Marylebone and it has somewhat gained a reputation of serving some of the finest breakfasts in London. The playful element and creative touch by owner Peter Gordon has delighted locals and the press and I were keen to try out its weekend brunch menu on a hot sunny day.

Poached Turkish eggs on whipped yoghurt with hot chilli butter served in a bowl was unusual with a touch of  Eastern Mediterranean element, the texture was almost like a soup based with a sour and mild spicy taste, great fun dipping it with the sourdough toast. The grilled chorizo and miso hash was a real winner, a lovely soft boiled egg on top of a bed of soft sweet potato and the star anise and cashew nut added lovely depths of texture and nutty aroma. It was a dish full of multi flavours dimension but worked extremely well at the same time.

The brunch was a really interesting encounter, I've never experienced any food like that in the past and it really opened up my eyes on breakfast in a whole new difference way. Service was decent enough but the limited 1.30 hours times allowance with a cover charge of  £1.50 per person was very questionable, with a service charge also applied, it just doesn't seem to make sense to me. But the food at the end of the day was fabulous and truley worth a visit if you live nearby.
