A week behind, but here's a short post about our brunch experience at Smiths of Smithfield last weekend, thanks to another one of my competition wins. The best prizes are always the ones that involve food...
"Smiths" of Smithfield is the Grade II listed four-floor restaurant in the heart of Smithfield Market, which is known to serve simple food made from the finest ingredients, in a casual and relaxed atmosphere.
We dined in the Ground Floor Cafe which was very vast with exposed brickwork and plenty of large windows that allowed in plenty of natural light from outside.
We ordered three different dishes to share between us.
Our first dish was the eggs benedict with ham. The eggs were perfectly poached with nice runny yolks, served with some tasty slices of ham and toasted muffins.
The second was the smoked haddock fishcake which was nice and round-ish, with a lovely moist texture inside. And a lovely golden crisp outer coating. Served with another nicely poached egg with a runny yolk.
Our third option was the BBQ pulled pork sandwich with coleslaw, lettuce and tomato. Tender meat, nice marinade and overall a simple and hearty dish.
And to finish off, an indulgent bourbon biscuit 'n' cream milkshake...
Overall we were happy with our orders, and would have probably have loved to try more if we weren't already so full! I guess that we will just have to leave the waffles and pancakes for our next visit.
A nice relaxing atmosphere and another great option for brunch on the weekend, or during the week if you work in the area. They also have a separate menu for their Dining Room and Top Floor, which can be found on their website.
