Without a doubt Brunch is one of my favourite mealtimes and it has been growing in popularity for some time now, which is good news for me. One Saturday a group of friends and I decided to visit HotBox in Spitalfields.
All I can say is…wow! If you fancy somewhere for brunch where you can enjoy good food, drink and great service, go here. Our waitress was so friendly and welcoming, she also clearly knew her stuff and was very knowledgeable about the food on offer. The menu was so good we all had to choose a main and sides so we could try as much as possible. I went for the Beef Rib Taco which were topped with Crispy Shallot and Chimichurri. For sides I had to go for the mac ‘n’ cheese and guacamole, as I have a slight obsession with both at the moment. We also got the mushrooms, smoked pork belly and hot line sausage to share.
The food was delicious and we also enjoyed unlimited refills of prosecco, mimosa or bloody mary’s. This does come at a cost of £25 per head plus your food but it was well worth it. I was quite skeptical about this concept at first. Would they come over a refill our drinks? Would it be nice prosecco? Is it truly unlimited? Obviously there is only so much prosecco you can drink at brunch but we didn’t want pay for something and not receive good service. Thankfully, HotBox corrected any reservations I may have had. Our waitress was very observant when it came to filling/replacing drinks and they used lovely prosecco and made divine bloody mary’s. You do have a time slot of 2 hours when you book but this is plenty of time to enjoy the food and a few drinks.
