Mac and Wild Fitzrovia sits on Great Titchfield Street, serving meat and seafood-based dishes from the Scottish Highlands.
It was 11 am on a beautiful sunny Saturday, and what better way to start my Saturday than with brunch! I have already been to the Mac and Wild branch in the city, so I was excited to try out their Fitzrovia branch.
Mac and Wild host their brunch every Saturday and Sunday from 11 am until 4 pm, and I started the brunch in full swing with a glass of Buckie royal. The Buckie royal is a mixture of buck fizz and prosecco, for £18 per person, you can make your brunch a boozy bottomless one.
To start the brunch, I had a crushed avocado on toasted sourdough bread with poached eggs and smoked salmon, which is produced in Inverawe. The avocado is ripe and is a great combination with the salmon and poached eggs. The Salmon used is fresh and pure and tasted great with a sprinkle of pepper. I always thought Scottish Salmon is the best!
A must-have from the menu has got to be the full Scottish breakfast. You cannot come to this authentic Scottish restaurant and not order a full Scottish breakfast! With Portmahomack bacon from Petley farm, homemade tattie scone, white pudding, black pudding, mushrooms, Lorne sausage, scrambled eggs and bone marrow beans. The full Scottish breakfast is certainly different from a full English breakfast, but I love trying out things that I have never eaten before. I found the Scottish breakfast more refreshing with different textures and tastes, in comparison to a full English breakfast, which is usually full of grease. I absolutely loved trying out the white pudding, especially once it was dipped in the bone marrow beans sauce. Also, be warned that the beans are on the spicy side.
After about 2 hours of bottomless drinking, I would recommend trying out their fresh green juice with apples, fennel, cucumber and ginger. Rich in flavour and antioxidants, this juice is sure to aid in curing a current or pending hangover.
The one thing that I love about the Fitzrovia branch is the vibe, as it is a lot smaller than the Mac and Wild in the city is has a more intimate feel, and this branch is great for brunches and meeting up with a close or old friend.
