London Guide: Brunch at Caravan King's Cross

This week's London Guide regards another gem from King's Cross Granary Square (actually right next door to Grain Store) - Caravan. Sorry that I'm a day late.

Caravan King's Cross is an outpost of the restaurant, bar and coffee roastery in Exmouth Market. Caravan refers to its food as being well travelled, in that the restaurant sources seasonal ingredients to create dishes that draw influence from around the world.

The Granary Square location is decorated in an industrial style to befit its location in the old grain store. The large space still felt really cosy during brunch, although this may have been due to our party of ten, and the loud music playing gave the restaurant a very festive feel (although it was a bit too loud).

The brunch menu was very hard to choose from because I honestly wanted to try pretty much everything.  I ended up going for the courgette and corn fritters with feta, tomato jam and rocket.  The fritters were almost pancake-like in consistency, weren't too oily and were very tasty when combined with the jam and the pesto-coated feta. I definitely had some menu envy when looking around the table. The jalapeno corn bread with fried eggs, black beans and guindilla pepper and the kimchi pankcakes and pork belly both looked amazing. The coffee, which is roasted by Caravan, was also very good (strong and slightly bitter). My bellini was never going to disappoint by nature, but it could have used a tad more peach.
