Breakfast at Wolsesley, London

If they say to have afternoon tea at the Ritz in London, they would say have breakfast at the Wolsesley. Which is coincidentally almost next door to each other. Apparently a lot of famous and rich people eat here. There were certainly rich looking people with their Louis Vutton vintage bags and posh accent in there.

The ambiance of the place is similar to the hotel sacher in Vienna, copying Vienna’s style of breakfast too.image

The price for a London establishment is actually not too expensive. A basket full of petit pain is £8. My avocado, poached egg and crostini was £9. Which is middling price for London really. That my friend thought we could afford to go there more often. Hahaha

This breakfast combination was simple yet devine, the avocado umami (gurih) plus the poach egg combine with a very crunchy and crisps crostini, is good.

Another one that I have never had before was the Canelè Bordelais. The very brown thing in the middle, the hint of honey was fragant and very pleasing. Yumm.

It was pretty nice, the food was good, the coffee and tea was served in a proper silver pots, the decor was vintage and the service was good.

Now the slightly dissapointing thing was the Croissant, perhaps it was because we came at 10.30 so it has been baked awhile before, or maybe it was because of the book I read about the Wolseley that made me imagine it to be as perfect as it described. But it was slightly chewy croissant, not as bad as those supermarket in a bag one, but just not crispy enough on the outside. The taste was nice and buttery, just not quite right.

This book I mentioned also said that Croissant is not a French invention, I repeat Croissant is not actually French! It was invented in Austria…da da dumm.. check it out yourself.

Then, I remembered, I have actually eaten Croissant in Vienna, YAY!!

What is the best Croissant you ever tasted, when and where please?
