Put Pachamama on your list of brunch places to visit in London. Pachmama is a Peruvian-inspired bar & restaurant located in Marylebone, famous for serving up small plates and kick-ass cocktails. Pachamama has a unique take on brunch, it’s not your typical avocado on toast, however it has dishes that cater for everyone.
The restaurant itself is beautiful, it’s decor has low lighting, exposed areas of brick wall which I loved, vintage lampshades and wooden dressers with lots of plants scattered around. A very welcoming and cosy feel to it.
Pachamama’s head chef Adam Rawson has created an attractive and innovative menu split into sections including sea, land and soil and many of the dishes are designed to share.
The bar is focused on Peru’s national spirit, Pisco. We started off with a raspberry and citrus pisco cocktail. Everything on the menu sounded delicious, so with the help from the waiter we eventually decided on a few plates to share. We decided to order some small savoury plates first and then go on to sweet. Of course, we had to order the famous waffles. You have a choice between quinoa or sweet potato base. We opted for the sweet potato base waffle topped with smoked bacon, fried egg and yacon syrup.
As well as the sea bass ceviche and the hot smoked salmon with green wild garlic, roasted barley and a poached egg. The salmon was my favourite dish, all the flavours went really well together. One thing I really loved about the food here , is the amazing use of colours. Every dish looked picture perfect.
Now I don’t know about you, but whenever I have something savoury a short while after I need to have something sweet. We ordered the sweet waffles. One was topped with english berries, ginger yoghurt, seeds and yacon syrup. The other waffle topped with peanut butter, grilled plantain, cacao nibs, coconut and peanuts. Oh my, how I wish you could of smelt these. They tasted incredible. I didn’t want them to end.
Each dish we had was delicious, I can’t wait to go back and try the dinner or lunch menu. I’ve had a lot of brunches in London and this would be on my list of top brunches.
