A few weekends ago, I finally had the chance to sit and have a proper brunch with my friends M and S from work. We decided to try out Hundred Acres, a little brunch spot near Soho that features local and seasonal ingredients on their menu. The vibe of the restaurant was pretty relaxed and by the time we got there for our 2pm reservation, the place was not as crowded and we were promptly seated once our whole party had arrived.
The food was indeed very fresh and wholesome – my only complaint was that by the time we got there, they were all out of their smoked salmon platter (as well as their poached eggs over smoked salmon) … yes – they were completely out of smoked salmon on a Sunday afternoon!
We managed to make do and ordered the following:
French Toast with Caramelized Pineapple and Honey Yoghurt
Acres Scramble, mixed greens and cornbread
House special: Leek quiche with side salad
We had a good time and the food was pretty dependable food classic brunch dishes (well, except for anything involving smoked salmon!). A nice way to spend a weekend afternoon, although not memorable enough to merit a definite return.
