Coal Office Restaurant Brunch Menu

Homeboy and I booked a table for brunch here last Sunday. We were told that the dishes were designed for sharing and that we should select bread, two items from the starters and two from the mains. This was a lot of food, so we’d probably order less and leave room for dessert next time.

The brunch menu featured a selection of bread to begin with. We settled on the Kabalah, a brioche-type bread served with reduced yoghurt, tomato confit and fresh oregano. You rip off a piece of the Kabalah to spoon some delicious dip. Other options are Manakish, a Levantine food similar to a pizza, served with Msabbaha Levant hummus. Or you can try the Lions Gate Pretzel with green harissa and dry za’atar.

From the menu’s ‘To Start’ section, we decided on Kussa, which was courgettes with za’atar vinaigrette, nana and chickpeas. When it arrived at the table, it looked fresh and a beautiful green colour; it tasted as fabulous as it looked! The Josperized aubergines with green tahini and pistachio were mushy, so we used the last of our bread to soak it up. Other delights included a Moroccan Fennel Salad and Seabass.

The mains, or ‘To Continue’, included Ironed Chicken, Steak with Eggs, Lamb and Beef Kebab and Bourekas with Boiled Eggs with Middle Eastern flavours. We ordered the Shakshuka Aduma, a tomato and pepper stew with poached eggs that we asked to be well cooked. The Uzbekistan Freekeh Risotto sounded too good to miss, so we also shared a portion of that. The vegan and vegetarian options weren’t highlighted on the menu, so you must ask which ones they are.

As I mentioned, we were stuffed after all the food. That was a shame because I browsed the dessert menu, which was very tempting. Treat yourself to the Chocolate Overdose, Cheese Cake or Tahini Ice Cream with Sesame Cookies. If you are celebrating, order a Mimosa, Bellini or Bloody Mary! To give you an idea of prices, the beads are £4.5-6.5, starters £8.5-12, mains £14-17, and desserts are £7.50-9.
