Grillshack opened earlier this month on Beak Street, Soho. When Mr Nom showed me the menu, I latched my eyes upon the buttermilk apple pancakes and was eager to visit them for breakfast. I was up early for a change which did surprise Mr Nom since I’m not particularly a morning person, and breakfast usually becomes brunch. We were surprised how empty it was around 11am with only a couple of occupied tables.
After a warm welcome we were seated and introduced to the different ways of ordering. The choices included ordering via the mobile app, a touchscreen ordering point or the old fashioned way at the counter. We chose the easy way of walking up to the counter, although at busier times the other options maybe more appealing.
Deciding what we were going to have for breakfast was super easy! We had already decided on the bacon brioche roll for Mr Nom, buttermilk apple pancakes with maple syrup for me and cinnamon French toast to share. Tea and filter coffee was offered via self-service.
The cinnamon French toast was heavenly! I was thinking maybe it would need a little butter when they arrived but they were gorgeous as they were. They were eggy and fluffy and light, the only thing I needed was more of them!
The bacon brioche roll seemed to go down well with Mr Nom although it was nothing special but just what is needed in the morning. The buttermilk apple pancakes were so good, they soaked up the maple syrup and if I had to nitpick maybe they could be a little more fluffier.
I absolutely loved the breakfast and wish I could have the cinnamon French toast every week! The normal menu has rump steak, burgers and grilled chicken among other things; all at affordable prices, our breakfast come to around a tenner which was very reasonable.
