French Toast is one of my favorite breakfast of all times especially if I am in London or Dubai. In Russia, I don’t usually order them because we have other fun options as pancakes and cottage cheese dishes. But during my last trip to London, I had a very important mission to fulfill, to find the best french toast in town. Of course, there are so many restaurants and I didn’t have a chance to try all of them. Nevertheless, I was lucky enough to find a couple of great ones. Hope it will be a useful little guide for those who are also in love with this delicious breakfast.
I know people supposed to come for Duck&Waffle dish to this restaurant but honestly, I think the best dish on the menu, it’s a French Toast. Although they call it differently, TORREJAS and recommend to share it. If I go there again, I skip the main and order just this with a cup of coffee or tea plus I’m going to share my French Toast with nobody. Don’t get me wrong, the other things I tried were good but French Toast there is something really amazing.
- Name – on the menu TORREJAS (Serves Two)
- Price £16 (to share the price is great but not the dessert)
I discovered this dish at the Four Season actually by pure luck. I was sitting in the hotel lobby with a friend of mine and having tea, then I felt for something sweet but nothing was appealing to me on the menu. Then talking to a waitress she asked me, What usually do you like to eat for sweets? As a joke, I answered a French Toast. She said we can make it, you are in a 5-star hotel, the no answer doesn’t exist here. So they made a French Toast just for me and honestly it was one of the best ever. Definitely coming back on my next trip.
- Name – French Toast, it is off the menu but just ask for it
- Price £14 (not sure exactly because I paid together with a tea £17)
My all time favorite restaurant for breakfasts and brunches is Aubaine. Living in Dubai, I used to go there quite often. So to keep up with a tradition I decided to try it in London as well. They always do excellent French Toast although lately they try to modify and make it more interesting as French Toast Croissant with banana and bacon or French Toast Croissant with mix berries. Do not order these modifications, I personally didn’t like it. Just ask them to do off the menu traditional way with berries and maple syrup.
- Name – French Toast ask for classic one
- Price – £11.5
Let me know if you also a French Toast fun and if you know other great places to try it. I also learn from you.
