Post hangover feels, in desperate need of good stodge, cue The Breakfast Club which was my guardian Angel this fine Sunday.
Based in the tucked away corner of Camden Passage, The Breakfast Club sorted me right out. I went for the Salt Beef Reuben, with fries, coleslaw and a side of avocado (this is London after all). I must say I was pleasantly surprised. The salty beef of the Reuben was just what I needed, washed down with a BIG glass of ice cold cola.
The sandwich itself was delicious, served on sourdough bread it really was up there when it comes to sandwiches. Alongside the mound of salt beef (brined brisket), the sourdough delight carried sauerkraut (chopped pickled cabbage), mustard, cheese and a pickle. Although this sandwich was a hefty meat lovers delight, I used a range of sides to help break up the saltiness a tad.
For the sides, I had fries ( these were standard really), slaw (also ok) and a side of avocado (does what it says on the tin). All in all the avocado was a God send to help me finish the sandwich, because the freshness was just what the palette needed.
Although we queued (for four of us) in the rain for about 30 mins, the service at the Angel branch could not be faulted. As soon as we got in, we were quickly seated and the servers were great. Not only were they attentive, but they had it going on when it came to banter. Overall great experience and, even if just for the service, was definitely worth the wait!
