    SUNDAY BRUNCH - FLESH & BUNS

    A boozy Sunday brunch has long been a New York institution but slowly its making its way across the pond. I love a good 'sunday session' - you really can't get a better Sunday than an afternoon of eating,  drinking and catching up with friends in London and I've now found the perfect place to do it.

     Over in Covent Garden, the people behind Bone Daddies have really hit the nail on the head with Flesh & Buns and their Sunday Brunch offer. For £39/46 you get to choose unlimited small dishes from their set menu (the more expensive option gives you access to both menus),  a choice of 'flesh & buns' for your main course and dessert - plus unlimited red/wine wine or prosecco.

    Being the fine (read: greedy) eaters we are, Tom & I went for the £46 option so we could sample as many dishes on the menu as possible. ‘CHIPS & DIPS’ came up first – like a Japanese nachos! Rice crackers served with avocado shiso (like a guacamole) and a tomato jalapeno relish followed by a bowl of miso soup each.

     Soon softshell crab, spicy tuna rolls, California rolls and edamame appeared….

    The Korean fried wings (delicious) and chicken yakitori (didn’t really do it for me) were eaten before I even got a chance to photograph them! By this time, my waistline was bulging and I was getting a bit tipsy from the Prosecco! The waitors whirl around you topping your glass up constantly and you’re welcome to reload the dishes as many times as you like – but bear in mind you still have two more courses to come! Once we'd admitted defeat our 'flesh and buns were brought over'

     Pork belly being my favourite dish, I went for the piglet belly with mustard miso sauce and pickled apple – oh, my god.

     Look at those buns! It was like eating a meaty cloud….

     I had such a fun afternoon – the food is incredible, the atmosphere is relaxed and lively and it’s brilliant value for money! Get yourself down there, you’ll love it!
