Moroccan vegan brunch sounded interesting to me when I got invited to try out Comptoir V.
Since I love Moroccan food and am on a quest to eat less meat to help the environment, I decided to try out their new brunch menu this weekend.
The restaurant is close to Kensal Rise overground station.We decided to order a selection of savoury and sweet brunch dishes.
The above is called The full Moroccan and comprised of Merguez sausages, ghife bread, harissa baked beans, shaskshuka and caramelised onion compote.
There was a lovely balance of salty and spicy. It was delicious. I totally forgot I was eating a non meat dish.
We also ordered the Berry-Go-Round pancakes, which comprised of strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, banana anglaise, toasted coconut, and cinnamon maple drizzle served with ice cream.
What can I say? We shared it at the table, and it didn’t last for long. The banana anglaise between the pancakes was so good. It wasn’t too sweet, just perfect with a hot cup of coffee.
Looks so pretty doesn’t it?
As you can see, the restaurant has touches of Moroccan decor, with the etched brass table, ornate wall lights and aubergine coloured velvet seating.My husband wanted to try the Truffle mushroom on sourdough toast. All I can say is it was a good choice and so moreish. That didn’t last long on the plate either.
The Bottomless Prosecco is £16.95 for 90 minutes. However, it was too early for us to indulge in alcohol, so we had their Adams Apple juice which was a healthy apple, mint and lime combination.
Comptoir V, a small unassuming restaurant in London’s Kensal Rise, has pleasantly surprised me with their vegan brunch. So delicious! I’m definitely returning again soon.
They have restaurants in London’s Portobello road and their Fulham restaurant will be reopening soon.
All I can say is that it was a joyful treat to have on a dreary and grey rainy day.
Do check out some of the other cool eateries I have written about.
