FoxCroft & Ginger
(69-79 Mile End Road
Whitechapel E1 4TT)
I’d heard that breakfast at FoxCroft & Ginger is really something special – so last week me and my boyfriend decided to visit the one in Whitechapel for brunch. I was really surprised
at the size of the Whitechapel one, the original restaurant is in Soho and is no way near as big. The staff were so friendly and helpful which is always a plus when eating out. F&G are famous for their home baked Sourdough bread (which they also make into pizzas for the evening!). I ended up getting french toast with ham, mature cheddar and honey mustard whilst my boy got herb roasted mushrooms, poached eggs, truffled hollandaise on sourdough toast.
I’m a sucker for sweet and savoury together in one dish (you may have seen my doughnut burger post , if not – here it is
). So the french toast dish seemed perfect for me and believe me, it was. The french toast was so thick ,the cheese and ham went perfectly with the sweet honey mustard sauce.The portion size was so generous too for £6.20 you can’t really go wrong. The herb roasted mushrooms on sourdough were really tasty but a bit more expensive at £8.95. The fresh orange juice came in really cute bottles and it was all so well presented – all in all a great experience.
With all the awesome cakes and pastries on display we just had to try some so we got a choco pop (chocolate covered beetroot lolli-cake-pop), a coffee cupcake and the gluten free orange/chocolate cake. I have pictures on my phone but you can’t see them very well then me and my friends ate them all so….. yeah. They were SO GOOD! You have to try the choco pop, I was amazed that it was actually beetroot.
I’m so glad I finally found a great place for breakfast/brunch in east London – definitely a place to take friends and family when they’re visiting. I can’t wait to go back in the evening to try the pulled pork sourdough pizza.
What do you guys think?
Let me know if you plan on visiting because I would like to go again 🙂 haha!
