Malibu Kitchen The Ned Breakfast Menu
The menu at Malibu Kitchen features healthy, Californian style food. If you want eggs, you can try the Egg White Omelette with basil, chives and tarragon. Or perhaps you might prefer the Open-Faced Omelette with spinach, kale, prosciutto and comté cheese. Avocado Royale comes with smoked salmon, sesame and a helping of spicy kimchi hollandaise. We tried the Quesadilla with creamy scrambled egg, Portobello, spring onion and pico de gallo, which was very good and beautifully presented.
We also shared the Avocado Toast with tomato, chilli and watercress, which was super fresh and fabulous. You can add an egg if you want to this dish. The Grain Bowl sounded tempting with sprouts, kale, seeds, avocado and egg. If you’re going to keep things simple, ask for eggs in a style you like. Add sides to create your breakfast – mushrooms, spinach, hash browns, bacon, sausages, salmon or avocado.
Grains, berries and sweeter options included Bircher Muesli plus goji, passion fruit, coconut yoghurt and a scattering of toasted almonds. Or you can try Coconut Yoghurt with seasonal compote, honeycomb and pistachio. The heavenly Acacia Bowl with granola, berries, banana and bee pollen would be an excellent way to start your day. We settled on the Turmeric Pancakes, which were delicious; I would highly recommend those. With coconut, banana, macadamia and almond butter, it was a real treat. Dishes cost £8-13.
Drinks included teas and coffees with speciality lattes – matcha, golden turmeric and beetroot cacao. Juice combinations, shakes, smoothies, wellness shots and kombucha were also featured. These all sounded amazing, so worth exploring if you are virtuous!
If you are eating from the Brunch or All Day Menu, you can expect raw vegetables, salads, rice bowls, flatbreads, healthy dips, ceviche, poke, tacos, cheeseburgers and more.
