Crumpets and even bigger full English join the line-up
Popular British gastropub Reform Social & Grill has launched a brand-new breakfast menu, featuring a “very British” assortment of dishes.
Available on weekends, the Time Out Dubai award-winning restaurant’s new offerings including a “larger than life” Breakfast of Champions, starring – deep breath – two sausages, bacon, grilled tomato, buttered button mushrooms, Heinz baked beans, black pudding, fried bread (in dripping, no less), a buttered flour bap, and either poached, double-fried or scrambled eggs. Plus tea or coffee and an orange juice.
If all that sounds a bit much, the revamped Full English now features (a slightly more manageable) two sausages, bacon, grilled tomato, buttered button mushrooms, Heinz baked beans, poached, fried or scrambled eggs and a toast rack or English muffin.
But there’s more. The new “On Toast” range includes avocado-topped buttered crumpets, scrambled eggs on sourdough toast and smoked kippers on toasted Hovis. Alternatively, try the kedgeree made with Arbroath smoked haddock, braised garam masala rice, soft eggs and peas.
There are also options for more health-conscious diners in the shape of new gluten and dairy-free breakfast pots, buckwheat pancakes and fruit plates.
If you’re not by now completely overwhelmed with options, spare a thought for the new (and, by comparison, mercifully restrained) British Bakery section, with English muffins, buttered crumpets, teacakes and tattie scones, just Dhs15 each.
Phew. Weekend breakfast menu available from 8am every Friday and Saturday. Reform Social & Grill, The Lakes, Emirates Living (04 454 2638).
