As soon as I stepped into the Brunch Club & Supper I was reminded of my university exchange days back in Beijing. I told this to J and he couldn't help but to feel puzzled because there is nothing Chinese at the Brunch Club & Supper! The truth though is it reminded me deeply of a cafe where we used to hang out a lot in Wudaokou, the neighborhood of some of the most renowned universities in China: BLCU, Tsinghua and Peking University. With these three universities welcoming thousands of exchange students every year, the Wudaokou area is filled up with western style cafes and clubs. I unfortunately forgot the name of that particular cafe the Brunch Club & Supper reminded me of, but I remember the place very well, as well as the yummy food they served and all the good memories that remained, especially the ones with Sarah, an Australian girl with whom I became inseparable for the whole exchange period, to the point where it was difficult to see one of us if the other was not around.
Back to the Brunch Club & Supper, this is a great choice for an all-day breakfast. They have the common sets, continental or american, as well as other breakfast favorites such as eggs benedict, waffles or pancakes among others. They also have non-breakfast food like pasta or salads. We went there for brunch and J had the continental set (a very healthy choice!) while I had eggs benedict with smoked salmon (one of my favorite choices for breakfast as I already mentioned on a previous post!) along with a cup of Hot Chocolate with Almonds and Caramel. Eggs benedict + hot chocolate definitely makes for a great start to the day!
