Hellooo, it’s been a while since I posted and today’s post is brief and quite impromptu. I went to meet two of my dear friends over the weekend for a long overdue catch up in the sun.
Brunch was on the agenda but what I discovered, may just be my new favourite place for summer and something I had to tell you about!
Presenting… St.Katherine Docks… okay this place isn’t new. I’ve been before too but brunch at Dokke Living Room was!
Dokke serves up brunch with British produce but with an Asian Twist. Coupled with stunning views of the docks (book a seat on the terrace if possible) this is a place not to be missed.
We arrived around 1pm and chose the bottomless version and had our glasses regularly topped up with prosecco. We quickly ordered from their menu and chatted in the midst of their laid back living room decor…I obviously had one eye (okay maybe both eyes) on their mouthwatering selection of cakes.
Whilst we waited for our food we were pleasantly greeted with the waiter and a palette cleanser… a bud of a schezwan flower and something which, once consumed, will alleviate your taste buds ready for the dishes you are about to consume. Eagerly we all ate it – and there was a huge difference in what I expected and what I actually felt. I expected a taste of spice and heat but what I experienced was a buzz and a tingling sensation. It was unreal and albeit slightly confusing. Words cannot describe this sensation. The tingling wears off and immediately your taste buds are heightened.
Our food had arrived. Between us we had ordered the cloud egg (a fluffy savoury meringue-esq dish with avocado and chorizo), volcano egg (yes charcoal is used!) and an edamame frittata. The result? Simply fantastic. These dishes were different to what I’ve had at a brunch before and the Asian twists just seemed to highlight the produce in every way possible.
The menu here changes daily but if flavours are anything to go by, I will definitely be returning to sample what else can be cooked up at this eatery! Overall, a great brunch in the sun!
