What better way to start a food blog than with a breakfast/brunch post?  My two favourite things to do are to eat and sleep, which don’t always go hand-in-hand when you want to go out for a good breakfast.  If you are like me and love a lie-in at the weekends, Stravaigin is perfect for people like us as it serves its brunch menu until 5pm on Sundays.

Their brunch menu offers the usual suspects – full Scottish breakfast and Eggs Benedict - but also a Nasi Goreng (Indonesian fried rice, bacon, king prawns and poached egg) which I was very close to ordering.  In the end, the promise of chillies in a Hollandaise sauce won me over and I went for the “Kick Ass Eggs Benedict” and the Hubby chose the French toast with bacon and maple syrup.

The Eggs Benedict really hit the spot – the addition of chillies in the Hollandaise sauce helped cut the richness of the sauce and eggs.  Absolutely delicious.

I did get a bite of the Hubby’s dish (but it took some persuasion) and it was also delicious.  Perfect French toast – just the right thickness with a nice crust.  And “lashings” of maple syrup as described on the menu.

We ended the meal with an Earl Grey Tea and cappuccino.  Together with two glasses of fresh orange juice (quite pricey at £2.60 each but it was freshly squeezed and really good), the bill set us back £22.70 which is pretty reasonable, but a visit every weekend may be a bit of a splurge…  but we’ll definitely be back to Stravaigin again for a lazy brunch in the near future.  After all, I need to try their Nasi Goreng… all in the name of science…

  1. Delightful comments! It was fun to read even though I live far from Scotland and don’t foresee having a meal there.
