I am sure you know the feeling, you are visiting London, on your own or with friends, you end up in Trafalgar square or Covent garden, everybody is starving and all what is on offer is fast food tagged with horrendous prices. Well no more. I was invited to review a restaurant which will put a smile on your face and you will wish to keep the address secret but you not be able to, because this is a "best place": Albannach 66 Trafalgar square, yes your eyes are not deceiving you, Trafalgar square.
On Sunday, we had a booking for 13.00, which left plenty of time to visit the portrait gallery and its exhibition. On arrival the front of the house was absolutely charming, we were lead to a table by the window and we gazed at the tourists while the waiter bought us drinks and the menu.
Now not only the decor is sleek, the service courteous but the Albannach new brunch & lunch menu is perfectly targeted. Here I should say that the restaurant is Scottish, the clue is in the kilt worn by the bar waiter, but back to the food....smoked salmon £8.50 and Macsween Haggis £16.50 figure in good place along with traditional dishes such as full English breakfast (the way it is suppose to be) £10.50 and traditional Sunday roast (with all the trimmings) £15.50.
I went for the chicken salad and he chose a three eggs omelet with mushroom, we did not go wild but sometimes it is easier to compare what you already know. My salad was nicely seasoned the chicken BQ for extra flavour and the croutons crunchy. His omelet looked and tasted good, though I am not sure about the oil on the top.
Albannach is also running whisky courses, the staff is highly knowledgeable. All in all really recommended. I will definitely be back for haggis in the winter.
