Coffee Enquiry XXVII: Nopi - Breakfast and Coffee

Six months ago you were eating four of those for breakfast and chasing it with a ring ding, and two butter fingers on the train. Sounds familiar?
Cosmo Kramer (Seinfeld episode “The Glasses”)

I have been wanting to go to NOPI for a while, Yotam Ottolenghi restaurant in Soho. A brasserie with Middle East and Asian Flavours. Open all day, bright white with bricks and tiles with brass lamps decor, downstairs a big communal table looking the open kitchen. So after months planning to go I spotted the chance to get breakfast there, lucky me the place was not so crowded on a weekday breakfast time.

The place
White & Brass
First lest talk about the food. I got the North African dish Shakshuka. Braised eggs, tomato sauce, and labne. Amazing! This is for sure one of the top breakfast dishes in London, the mix of flavours, spicy kick that kept going and going, the eggs perfectly cooked with a beautiful runny yolk, the tomato based with onions garlic and herbs, everything was amazing.

Shakshuka
Now is time to talk about the coffee. I went for a Flat white, great coffee, nice after taste, strong with a balanced bitterness, latte art top marks, this was like taken from a top independent coffee place.

Machine: La Marzocco
Beans: Climson & sons
Score: 4/5

Perfect coffee
I highly recommend you to go for food and/or coffee as both are amazing. I will come back for lunch and dinner for sure.
