Tasty n Alder’s tapas inspired menu is fantastic. The small plates give you the chance to try out a number of dishes on the menu without stuffing yourself (too much) or it costing a bomb. After strong advice from the server we ordered Potatoes Bravas with an over easy egg and aioli. I love patatas bravas but I have to admit it took a bit of persuading to have it as a breakfast item but I’m glad we were swayed!
We followed the patatas bravas with a delicious omelette: Fuhgettaboutit – with New York style sausage, peppers and onions, basil and Italian cheese. The balance of Italian spices and spicy sausage are perfect. Pure deliciousness.
The bustling and bright atmosphere is fun and exactly what we were looking for. Be prepared to wait as they’re in demand. They also have a sister restaurant on the other side of the bridge: www.tastyntasty.com.
My one complaint is their lack of coffee options. It would have been great to top the delicious brunch off with an espresso.
