Levantine-inspired restaurant Arabica has launched a new brunch menu with a selection of innovative dishes that are guaranteed to spice up your weekend.
The restaurant has been a key part of the food offering at Borough Market for over 18 years, and is now bringing Londoners a new way to enjoy the punchy and fragrant ingredients of the Levant, with many of the new dishes featuring an array of products imported directly from the region by Arabica themselves.
The menu features some lesser-known dishes like a Breakfast Pide (with coal-roasted peppers, spiced beef sausage, Rookery farm egg and halloumi); Fisherman’s breakfast (grilled kipper with spiced butter) and Turkish-style fried eggs (with peppers, aubergine, tomato and crispy shallots).
These sit alongside Arabica’s playful take on breakfast favourites like Persian granola (honey roasted oats, seeds and nuts with apple, berries and pomegranate – vegan and gluten free), moorish buckwheat pancakes (with banana, salted date honey caramel, orange blossom cream and pecan crumble) and avocado on seeded man’ousheh (with the super-healthy addition of mixed sprouts, baby spinach, herbs, toasted sunflower seeds, crispy onions crumbs, green zhug and preserved lemon yogurt).
Diners will also get to sample their Halloumi and herb tortilla (Rookery farm eggs, haloumi, spinach, peas, Persian herbs and Sangak bread) and a lip smacking take on a Bacon sandwich (House-cured lamb bacon, tomato, baby gem, wild oregano, pomegranate molasses) as well as a halal take on a classic Full English.
Dishes range from £6 to £10 with juices from £4 and traditional Turkish coffee at £3.50. Harissa Bloody Mary’s at £10. This new menu will be served on Saturdays and Sundays from 9am to 12pm.
