Forget The Breakfast Club, there is a new cool club in town. We are The Brunch Club and it has become some sort of a ritual that we have brunch most Sunday's every month. The Brunch Club hadn't met up in a while, so we were thankful that a new brunch place had open up that we hadn't tried. Grabbing our stuff, we headed down to the place to get our mass ordering on...
We have all been to Pintura before for some amazing Spannish food and we were excited when we heard they were starting a brunch menu in the up coming weeks. The theme was also Spanish (perfect practice for when L and I go to Barcelona this year!)
The menu is so reasonably priced for brunch! Many places that do brunch can really up the prices (you are looking at about a tenner just for the food) but much like you would imagine a 'tapas brunch', the plates are priced spot on!
Whilst we ordered our drinks and were knuckling down the choosing on which meal we were going to order, hot pieces of toast were placed on the table with a little bit of butter to melt deliciously while you continued to decided. Though there was unfortunately no green tea at the time when we ordered (Jess and I were horrified) the staff were quick and attentive to come up with alternative choices that might suit us...
You must order the Orange and Pink Grapefruit juice! It is so tangy and fresh, the perfect start to the day!
L ordered the El Pleno Espanol or 'The Full Spanish': chistorra sausage, braised belly bacon, black beans, morcilla sausage, slow roasted tomato & crunchy hen’s egg. I was lucky enough that L doesn't like black pudding, so more for me!
Homemade Brioche: seville orange and dark chocolate.
My dish was the morcilla: Basque- style black pudding and a crunchy hen's egg. I loved it! The egg is cooked perfectly, it goes perfectly well with the black pudding and the tomato sauce.
Dan and Jess went for the Tortlla Classica: classic Basque omelette, caramelised onion and potato.
I have honestly fallen in love with the place all over again. Pintura kitchen is one of the best new additions to Trinity Leeds. It's a mix of Spanish culture, New York City dining (sitting at the bar watching your food being cooked is the ultimate Sex and The City experience) and an Instagram- addict heaven for photo opportunities; as you can see by my photo bellow:
I was lucky enough for Pintura themselves to retweet my photo on their twitter feed! Brunch is served daily between 10.00am- 12.00pm everyday, if you are not in for a main cooked menu, there is also a delightful selection of pastries to go with your coffee/ tea.
