Hello, lovely readers. I hope you are all doing well. My favourite way to start the day when I travel is to get a delicious breakfast somewhere cosy with a brilliant buzz and a friendly atmosphere. Muriel’s Kitchen in South Kensington is definitely the right spot to start the day right. It is perfectly located within a short walking distance to the Museums Quarter. That’s why I chose to have a hearty breakfast in the comfort of Muriel’s Kitchen before hitting the museums.
Muriel’s Kitchen is literally situated above South Kensington underground station. Kensington is a wealthy and highly reputable area in London. It has a lot to offer from shopping to walks in the royal parks and discovering the free museums.
As soon as I approached Muriel’s Kitchen I was greeted with a mouth-watering array of cakes and pastries on their display window.My family and I felt very welcomed as soon as we stepped inside the cosy and warm restaurant. There were a few people queueing and we had to wait for a little bit to be seated. It can get really crowded during the weekends, so it’s a good idea to go early. In South Ken kitchen no reservations are taken. You just turn up and they find you a table.
I couldn’t resist taking a few snaps while waiting for our table.
Delicious traditional Afternoon Tea for £15.75 pp is served daily to brighten up anyone’s day.
After waiting for around 15 minutes we were taken to our table.
The restaurant was crammed with pans, pots, cook books on shelves, kitchen utensils and plants. It felt like being home. The interior design was simply spot on.
There was a genuine feeling of comfort and sheer joy that came over me while looking around and admiring the waiters rushing by to serve everyone, while maintaining big smiles on their faces. People’s laughter and chatters mixed with the sound of coffee machine steamers filled the air. That kind of rushing moments is what I call life.
My hearty breakfast for champions was finally on the table. I opted for Nana’s Veggie Breakfast which was a big serving of 2 organic eggs (I chose sunny-side-up style) with wilted spinach, baked beans, 2 toasts, baked tomatoes, Portobello mushroom and a flavourful potato rosti.The food was fresh, tasty and I could tell it was prepared with the finest of ingredients. I enjoyed every bite and towards the end I was feeling stuffed. It was a big portion for me and next time I’ll definitely share it. Unfortunately I didn’t have room for dessert, so I paid my bill, put on my coat and was ready (and full) to start discovering the museums just around the corner.
