A few weeks ago, I was invited to Kanteen in Digbeth, Birmingham to try their brunch menu. I have been to Kanteen before but it was a few years ago now. I remembered the food was very tasty and fresh and I hoped that it would still be the same on my return visit. I dropped the boys off at school/preschool and then headed into Birmingham for some ‘me’ time.
Upon arriving at Kanteen about 10.30am on a Thursday morning, I was pleased to see the restaurant was busy with people having meetings and using the free wi-fi to do some work. I ordered a latte and perused the brunch menu.
The brunch menu has a selection of items served with poached eggs and a selection of items served on toast alongside some porridge options. This is not the usual beans on toast or egg on toast kind of place though. I tried two dishes from the brunch menu and they were Poached Eggs With Merenguez sausage in spicy tomato sauce. with curly kale & herb gremolata and Iberico Chorizo, Roasted Red Pepper & Goats Curd On Toast.
My favourite out of the two dishes was the Merenguez sausage in spicy tomato sauce as it had a real kick to it and was very moist. I liked the chorizo on toast too but I could not taste much of goats curd and the whole dish was a little bit dry for me. I loved sitting in Kanteen though as it has a lovely view of the Custard Factory and I could watch the world going by for hours on end. I ordered another latte and did just that. I was very tempted to try one of their cakes but decided to be good and leave it for when I visit another day. As well as serving brunch, they have lots of cakes and pastries and a lunch menu which includes hot boxes, salad boxes and sandwiches. You will not be disappointed if you visit Kanteen at any point of the day, I can assure you.
