Brunch at Honky Tonk

If you’re looking for somewhere new to try for brunch, have you dropped by Honky Tonk yet? I finally got round to trying it over the weekend, despite it being a stone’s throw away and I think it’s worth checking out.

Honky TonkLocated on Hollywood Road, this New-York-styled bar and restaurant is quite a refreshing addition to the Chelsea scene. The restaurant’s design has created a nostalgic feel that takes us back to the 50s. And depending on which wall you are facing, you could be forgiven for feeling as if you were supposed to be dining in a large record-playing booth.

For our brunch, the bf and I both decided to go for a Full House breakfast which included bubble and squeak; tomatoes; a portobello mushroom; smokey barbecued baked beans; toasted brioche; and eggs. I had my eggs poached but I didn’t have my toast, which I donated to the bf’s plate instead.

What I loved about this brunch was that it wasn’t greasy at all. I love a good fry-up but most times I tend to enjoy them at home, replacing baked beans and toast with asparagus and slices of potatoes.

But Honky Tonk’s Full House breakfast won me over. The baked beans were a delightful surprise (because I love that BBQ flavour) and the bubble and squeak was light to eat.

Honky Tonk has an impressive-looking cocktails menu and the American food menu looks good too. So making sure that we were definitely coming back, I booked a table for in a couple of weeks time as we were leaving. Admittedly I am quietly excited that this new Chelsea hangout is practically on my doorstep and I’d love to see the bar come to life!
