Ladies and gents, I really didn’t know where to begin with this one… the food at Bar + Block Steakhouse was just INSANE. The other week me and a few of my favourite blogging ladies including Kara from Heels in my Backpack, Liv from Liv on a Shoestring, Sam from Yoko Meshi and Ellie from The Wandering Quinn headed for our quarterly brunch somewhere in the UK and this time we opted for the trendy Bar + Block at Kings Cross.
I love brunch, a meal where putting prosecco, bread, steak and pancakes together all at the same time is completely acceptable. Bar + Block have just launched their new bottomless brunch and my god was it good. And it is only £15 for a meal with unlimited prosecco for 90 minutes……
Bar + Block is originally a steakhouse for lunch and dinner but when they announced their new bottomless brunch me and the girls jumped at the chance to try it out, and we were so glad we did. The restaurant is trendy with interesting patterned flooring, wooden beams and bar stools dotted around the place, with high tables and even a chef’s table near the kitchen.
How it works is that when ordering your food at Bar + Block, let their team know that you’d like the bottomless drinks offer, then they come over to your table and take a photo with a polaroid. This photo then acts as your pass to all the prosecco you could ever need for up to 90 minutes (they write the time on the back so you know when you are close to time running out)!
Throughout the 90 minutes simply collect Prosecco from the bar by showing your photo and presenting your glass or help yourself to hot drinks and juice from the self-service area. And then when you are done keep the photo as a keepsake from your visit!
For our brunch we ordered an array of dishes including smashed avocado topped with a poached egg and red chilli, served on a toasted brown bloomer to the traditional pancakes topped with smoked streaky bacon and maple syrup. Then we had a selection of sides brought to the table which were amazing, including a stone-baked flatbread, Ploughman’s Block with homemade scotch egg and others, plus chicken wings with raspberry & TABASCO® Sauce and a sour cream dip. Then we opted for a main which was equally as recommended and delicious, with all of us minus Sam who’s a vegetarian opting for the spiral cut fillet 10oz – a unique dish created by spiral cutting the fillet and marinating it in garlic and parsley for tenderness and flavour. Honestly, it’d make even a vegetarian melt.
For £15 per person (plus the extras we ordered such as the starters + main) we all left very full and me, slightly drunk. Bar + Block is an amazing place, with a great atmosphere, friendly staff and bloody insane steak and food. It really is a hidden gem and I hope you try this place out too!
