Restuarant Review: The Brockley Mess, Brockley

Buck Rarebit
On Sunday we had a late lunch at the Brockley Mess. With its attractive looking array of brunch options, the place has a bit of the Kiwi / Sydney café vibe that we both find so appealing. Both Becks and I were left wondering why we hadn't visited before. I blame the location in Brockley's midtown. Its is too far away for a quick bite, but not far enough, as a venue when out for a walk.

We started off with a couple of milkshakes. I chose the banana shake and Becks the chocolate version (both £2.75). Becks declared them the milkshakes were the best she'd had in a long time.

I ordered the tabbouleh (£4.95) from the specials board. A comforting mix of tabbouleh, salad, haloumi, felafel and pitta bread. The haloumi was my favourite bit of the dish. While the salad didn't arrive dressed an accompanying bottle of dressing arrived at the table to save me from a naked salad. The felafel were a little bland, but thankfully not dry.

Becks ordered the Buck Rarebit (£4.50), a Welsh Rarebit with a poached egg on top. A good mature cheddar and just enough Worcester sauce made it a pretty damn good cheese on toast. The poached egg was a little over cooked for me, but Becks declared it just to her liking.
The bill came to under £15, which was excellent value as lunch for two. With lots of attractive looking brunch options on the menu we'll be back.
