Despite working in Bristol, we don’t find ourselves there very often at the weekend. But since I’d only done my epic commute twice last week, we hopped on the train and headed up to Clifton.
The concept of brunch hasn’t been invented in Warminster yet, so we made the most of being the The Big City and headed to Souk Kitchen.
I skipped my usual pot of breakfast tea in favour of their homemade Moroccan mint tea, which was divine.
And instead of the usual full English/eggs benedict etc, we opted for something slightly more exciting.
Alex had Turkish beans on toast with feta, to which he added some sujuk sausage and a side of crispy bacon (because, meat).
And I revelled in this delicious shakshouka (difficult to pronounce, easy to eat) – perfectly baked eggs swimming in a tomato, onion and red pepper sauce.
It came complete with some warm flat bread for dipping and scooping.
For Alex, no brunch is complete without a hit of caffeine, so he ordered the strongest thing going: a Turkish coffee.
Needless to say, it gave him plenty of energy for our visit to the zoo.
Despite the terrible weather, we had a fantastic day in Bristol. We also went to this exhibition, which was brilliant (if a little morbid).
