Asia de Cuba, Covent Garden. Bottomless brunch review.

The best thing about the meal was the drinks. They are delicious and strong. Unlimited Mojitos, Mimosas, Bellinis and Bloody Marys – the brunch is a great choice for anyone who loves a tipple – 4.3/5

Covent Garden; £££ (Bottomless brunch – starters, main and free desert £40.25 p/p inc. service)

 Asia de Cuba, a fusion of Latin-Chino cuisine tucked away in the St Martins Lane Hotel.

How does the brunch work?

You share starters – Hummus with Plantain and Malanga Crisps (malanga being a type of root, obviously…). Followed by a main course chosen from the 11 dishes on the a la carte menu. The dishes range from breakfast delights such as the Breakfast Tortilla and Smoked Salmon and Potato Waffles, to the lunch time treats such as the Cuban Sandwich or the Duck Confit.

The starters really aren’t anything special, however, the drinks start flowing as soon as you sit down and boy are they tasty.

I chose the Potato Waffles with Smoked Salmon and Avocado, wanting a breakfast meal and having been out the night before I needed a stomach liner as I had every intention of getting my moneys worth .

Recommendation from the server: ‘definitely the duck’ (oops – one to try next time)

It was really yummy! No complaints with my food, it was exactly what I needed. The ‘Cuban Benedicts’ was also great, but not recommended if you’ve got an appetite, as the dish was a little on the small side.

Our waiter was lovely and even brought us a free desert – doughnuts with caramel and Thai chili chocolate dip. Yum! I definitely recommend getting a portion if it doesn’t break your budget…or your belt.

However, I have to say the best thing about the meal were the drinks. They were delicious and strong – I tried the Bellini and the Mojito. There were also bottomless Bloody Marys and Mimosas – there really is a cocktail to suit everyone’s taste.

Service:

Great, we had a lovely server who came and chatted to us, brought us new drinks regularly and even brought us some free deserts ❤

Value for money:

Good value for money if you love a tipple, if you’re not a heavy drinker then I would suggest it’s not worth going purely for the food.

Would I go back:

Yes! As long as you’re paying… it’s Valentines Day soon right?

If you’re going to go:

Best for:

The liquor lovers when you’ve got a bit to splurge
