London brunch breakdown: Breddos, Clerkenwell

Mexican vibes: brunch at Breddos

Having gone from street food stars to fully-fledged restaurateurs, Breddos founders Nud Duhia and Chris Whitney have now extended the offering at their shiny Clerkenwell pad to include brunch. Mexican brunch, naturally.

What’s on the menu? Forget avocado on toast. Brunch at Breddos means the same selection of tacos, tostadas and grills you might expect at other times of the day, just all the more indulgent for it and washed down by a banging Bloody Maria.

Share a selection of tacos to start. The al pastόr, made from cured pork shoulder, is seductively salty and sweet while a kung pao pork belly edition, featuring sichuan pepper and bird’s eye chilli, is a rich tapestry of spiky flavours.

The Breddos version of a tostada sees a generous heap of coarsely chopped tuna tartare piled on a crisp tortilla, enlivened with chilli and coriander, and given added crunch from a sprinkling of peanuts. Given the amount of fish delivered, it’s positively bargainous at £8.50 despite being the most expensive of the small plates.

Mid-morning mezcal: start the day the Breddos way

After this you should progress onto the larger dishes — namely an Old Spot pork chop, lavished with a smoky scent from the charcoal grill and doused with salsa verde.

Oh, and there are doughnuts for pudding. Doughnuts with dulce de leche. Enough said?

When can I try it? Saturdays and Sundays, midday to 3pm.

Cheque out: Tacos are between £2.50 and £4.50 a pop, tostadas are between £7 and £10, and the larger grills range from £9 to £20. Wine starts at £4 a glass and cocktails at £8.
