I was very kindly invited to a bloggers Liquid Brunch at the London Malmaison which is tucked away in cute corner of Farringdon. My favourite millennial trend is hands down bottomless brunch and my go-to summer drink is an Aperol Spritz. Combine the two and you can bet I’m gonna be there.
For £24.95 you can chose a brunch plate and have two hours of bottomless Prosecco, Heineken or there latest edition, the beauty that is Aperol Spritz. I would class myself somewhat of an expert in the brunches involving unlimited alcohol and I think this is the best value for money I have seen (and I haven’t even got to the amazing food options).
I have spent between £30-£40 on bottomless brunches in the past and have had mixed experiences. The cheaper end of the scale usually means you only get unlimited drink for 1 and a half hours and the most common ones only include Prosecco. Now don’t get me wrong, a love a glass of bubbly, but variety is the spice of life. Not to mention how refreshing an Aperol Spritz is (genuinely contemplating running to Waitrose to buy some Aperol and whip one up).
So when I saw the price at Malmasion, I immediately knew I had to share it with my friends, neighbours, strangers in the street.
The brunch is downstairs in the hotel in their cosy brasserie and bar area Chez Mal which has lots Instagrammable opportunities with neon signs and huge quotes. Who doesn’t love a photo shoot after a few drinks?
Although the appeal of these brunches is the booze, if you get a disappointing meal, the whole experience is pretty pointless. But it is safe to say you won’t leave Malmaison disappointed.
From a variety of classic egg dishes to steak (which is insane for the price) to chicken kiev to a vegan salad option you are literally spoilt for choice. Although being gluten free I’m unable to enjoy everything on the menu, they were SO accommodating offering gluten free buns and even a chicken butterfly alternative to the kiev. If you do have any dietary requirements, make sure you let them know in advance.
Also wanted to add the hollandaise sauce on the Eggs Benedict was a solid 10/10 and that was consumed before multiple Aperol Sprtitzs. And as a self-proclaimed brunch Queen, (as written in my Insta bio) I know when a hollandaise is REALLY good.
If you are looking to get boozy with your besties this summer, I would defo recommend brunching at Malmaison, who have extended their usual Saturday bookings between 12-3pm to Monday- Friday in their London branch until 6th September. If you are based somewhere else in the country, fear not as their hotels are dotted all over and have lots of brunch options for you to enjoy.
