“I’m not queing… I refuse. I’m losing my dignity just looking at them all”
Sunday morning and our ambitious plan of a Bloody Mary in the Breakfast Club was rapidly being destroyed by my stubbornness.
“Who the hell queues for eggs!?”
So our issue remained unsolved – Chris, Jess and I had mastered a gin session the night before and were in bloody need of a bloody and brunch.
We scattered into the nearest pub Southwark Tavern in search for a bloody
” We need three bloody Mary’s please”
“It’s going to take a while..” The bartender said.
He wasn’t lying 20 mins later we had three tomato juices and vodkas.
Taste: 3/5 surprisingly good, great mix however slightly watery and warm.
Sweat test : 3/5 just enough to notice could do with some more.
Cup: 3/5 good size but not very fun.
Garnish:3/5 appreciate the effort of the pepper rim, especially in a pub. We asked for celery and he made it happen.
Presentation : 3/5 good effort , a little scruffy.
15/25 did the job, very good effort. Maybe not my go to place.
Now the bloody has been ticked off, time to find the brunch. Jess’s guy friend joined us, he suggested Joe’s Kitchen. I had never heard of it nor did I know this guy, his taste may be off but I took the risk.Thank god I did. First thing I saw was a sign promoting pimms. I knew I was in safe hands. Great first impression.
Pimms of course was the chosen beverage for this brunch.
Presentation: 5/5 yes pimms in a jam jar!
Tight or tasty:4/5 fair amount, but could be stronger!
Overall: 14/15 very trendy, neat and fun. Go Joe’s!
Ending note: Don’t follow the crowd – go to Joe’s.
