London’s Best Bottomless Brunch: Roka Canary Wharf

I would just like to take a moment to hail the person who came up with the idea of a bottomless brunch- food and unlimited drink- what is there not to love? Having sampled a few though, you usually find they’re either a bit tight on the alcohol (“ahem, my glass is empty….”) or the food isn’t great. Roka nails both. Every Saturday and Sunday, you can enjoy London’s Best Bottomless Brunch: eating the incredible food that  Roka Canary Wharf serves up, whilst having unlimited wine. And both are great.

You can tell who had been out the night before…

You start with a welcome cocktail- Bloody Mary if you’re a bit fuzzy from the night before, or a Bellini and help yourself to food from the counter for the starter. It’s a high end buffet if you’ve ever seen one- sesame salads, fresh tempura vegetables, sushi and sashimi, grilled meats and miso soups. I’ve never been and not managed to go up any less than three times (I don’t know if that says more about me or the
food….). The menu also comes with starters bought to the table, such as warm edamame beans and dumplings.

The choices of mains will also have you spoilt for choice. Two of my favourites are the ribs and the beef steak, or if I’m pretending to be healthy (pretending being the operative word at a bottomless brunch) the Teriyaki Salmon. All served up with unlimited nice wine- yep, no Blossom Hill or overly acidic white wine here…

The atmosphere is fun in Roka, with plenty of people dressed up and preparing for the night ahead. It’s the poshest pre-lash you’ll ever go to, and it’ll have you coming back for more.
