My favorite meal is brunch and I just love the brunch at Market Tavern located in the Farmer’s Market. Market Tavern just reopened and I had the chance to try both dinner and brunch and loved both. They are a contemporary British Pub. The pub has a very rock n roll feel and it’s located in the heart of LA, with a large patio which is for summer. We don’t have a lot of restaurants in LA with patios and it’s always nice eating out al fresco.
Before I get into the food they have an incredible cocktail list and an extensive beer selection, many of them being on tap. I had their cocktail, Smoke on the Water which is a refreshing mezcal drink that is mixed with Watermelon, basil and fresh lime. I highly recommend it. They also have British classics like a Pimm’s Cup, which I will try next time I go in. They are just steps away from The Grove, it’s a great place to just hang out after shopping.
My first visit to Market Tavern, I went for dinner. Everything we ate was delicious. I love that they incorporate the fresh California style into traditional British dishes. They have a really well rounded and diverse menu that there is something for everyone on it. I loved the salmon tartar it had tomato dashi, salmon caviar and avocado. It was very fresh and bright it’s a great dish to start off a meal. We also had the chopped salad to share, this is the perfect sharing salad. For my main course I had the fish n chips. I loved them because they were not heavy on the batter. They were light and fluffy. We also had the chicken curry, honestly it’s to die for and I keep dreaming of it. I need to go back for it. It was so flavorful. One of my favorite things I have eaten all year. We finished with both the sticky toffee pudding and bread pudding. If you have a sweet tooth get them both and they are definitely shareable!
I want to go back for dinner to get the curry again and to try the Beef Wellington. There are so many things on the menu that I need to back to try that I will be visiting them pretty often.
Let’s get to brunch because that’s my favorite meal. Their menu has so many things from classics like Benedict’s to fun items like spicy chicken and waffles, Japanese soufflé pancakes and California favorites with a twist like breakfast burritos. They also offer bottomless drinks, like mimosa’s, margaritas, and bloody mary’s. What I want you guys to order for brunch there is the Sunday Roast. They sell out so you need to go. I had the half chicken roast, it comes with peas, carrots, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, roasted potatoes, Yorkies and gravy. You have to go hungry because it’s a lot. I even took some home.
This was the best brunch I’ve had in awhile. I have told all my friends to go and they all are obsessed with it too. The other choices for the Sunday Roast are lamb leg served with a mint sauce and roast beef with horseradish. If you don’t go and get this you are missing out. I’m going back and taking everyone with me.
