I’ve been to The Providores a few times now and wanted to share some delicious looking photos with you because I like this place A LOT. It’s a café/restaurant co-owned & run by two New Zealanders and is based on Marylebone High Street. This is a sister restaurant of Kopapa which I have blogged about before.
The first time I came here it was for brunch with some friends and I ordered the hot smoked salmon, which came with two poached eggs and spinach on walnut toast with yuzu hollandaise. Absolutely delicious and surprisingly filling.
We tried a few of the sides too: Sautéed buttered field mushrooms, smoky molasses Boston baked beans & a glass of tangy fresh orange juice.
One of my friends went for the French toast stuffed with banana and pecans with grilled smoked streaky bacon and vanilla verjus syrup. This looked delicious but obviously I couldn’t try it because of the bacon (as it isn’t halal), but I can imagine it being yum!
On another occasion when I went again with some work mates, I went for their Turkish eggs from Changa restaurant in Istanbul – two poached eggs on whipped yoghurt with hot chilli butter and sourdough toast. This is what I had when I went for Brunch at Kopapa.
Flat White in a pretty cup!
It’s become one of my favourite places to go on Marylebone High Street and it always seems busy and stuffed with people, which I think actually says something about the place. You might have to queue for a little bit at the weekends, but I think that’s pretty much the standard for London these days.
