Bottomless brunch…with a twist // Lima Fitzrovia

Last weekend I was given the pleasure of trying Lima London’s new bottomless brunch menu through work. But this isn’t brunch as you know it. This is Peruvian brunch!

The restaurant itself, situated in the heart of Fitzrovia, is beautifully clean, bright and airy with authentic Peruvian touches.

We were seated in a lovely sunny spot in the corner as we choose which of their delicious free flowing punches to choose from. Pisco Punch Clasico was our tipple of choice for the afternoon. The pineapple, orange and lemon mix with prosecco was lovely and light and didn’t taste too boozy so was perfect for all day drinking!

When it came to food we were treated to the set long lunch which is usually £35 and includes a variety of starters to share, a main course each and 2 desserts to share. It’s important to point out that this is not your usual brunch food. There’s no eggs or bacon to be seen! If this is what you’re after, they do have a more typical brunch option which is served until 12:30pm.

While we sipped our Pisco Punch the starters of mixed ceviche, asparagus causa and cobia fish tiradito were served.

The mixed ceviche and cobia fish tiradito were my faves. You all know I’m a little bit obsession with ceviche at the moment, and this certainly didn’t disappoint. And as you can see, the presentation was awe inspiring! We genuinely gasped, oo’ed and then ahhh’ed each time they brought out a different dish.

For main I went for the lamb and rosy had the hake. Both were incredible and had a great mix of flavours and textures.

Finally we were served the desserts, Peruvian doughnuts and alfajores with dulce de leche ice cream. Personally I wasn’t the biggest fan of the doughnuts. Rosy loved them, but for me they were a bit too close to that sweet and savoury mix that I have weird issues with! But the alfajores were incredible! Similar to a really soft shortbread biscuit with a caramel sauce sandwiched between another biscuit. A bit like a Peruvian macaron. They were amazing!

Overall everything was incredible. The staff were so friendly and nothing was too much trouble. It’s not the cheapest option as if you go for the set lunch like we had, and the bottomless option (£20 extra) you’re looking at around £55 each. But what you get for that is pretty amazing, and you obviously don’t have to go for the bottomless option which makes it far more reasonable.

If you’re looking for a brunch with a twist, then definitely give this a try.
