Reasons for trip

A new burger place, “The Collab”:https://www.thecollablondon.com/, opened 3 months ago, and as it was a five-minute walk from our house in Walthamstow, East London, we visited for lunch. It’s a collaboration (hence the name) between an award-winning brewery, “Signature Brew”:https://www.signaturebrew.co.uk/, and the restaurant, “We Serve Humans”:http://www.weservehumans.com/.

The menu is straightforward: burgers (including vegan and vegetarian options), wings, fries, sauces and sides.

It’s a large trendy place with an ‘industrial’ feel with lots of exposed pipework, concrete floor and simple wooden tables and chairs. Whilst it’s not exactly a restaurant for a romantic meal, the burger and chips were good.

They recently began serving a weekend ‘eggcellent’ brunch menu between 9am and 1pm. This coincided with Yorkshire friends visiting for the weekend, and to save getting out the frying pan, we thought it would be perfect for Sunday brunch – particularly as they were offering 50% off between 9am and 10am.

Understandably, on arrival at 9.15am, it was already relatively busy, especially with family groups who they’d seated on a raised area. We all chose a different eggy dish: eggs benedict with ham, eggs royale (with their house-cured salmon), poached eggs with fried chicken, and for me, Turkish eggs. This was two poached eggs in a dish of turmeric, garlic yoghurt spiced with dukka. It was a little disconcerting at first, as the eggs were slightly cold because of the yoghurt, but the yolks were still lovely and runny and once I’d got used to the temperature, it was delicious especially with sour dough toast to dunk in it.

The eggs benedict had a really huge portion of pulled ham which the young waitress said was cooked for 24 hours to make it really tender. As well as egg dishes porridges, waffles and avocado on toast are on offer.

I ordered a bloody Mary which was large and incredibly spicy which I loved but might have been a bit too much for some people, especially so early in the day. A range of coffees and other drinks are also available to suit.

Our bill for four with two Bloody Mary and two coffee was less than £30 (with our 50% off).
