Yoghurt, Chickpea and Chorizo Pancake with Avocado, Tomato and Jalapeno Salsa at Grain Store, Kings Cross

Despite having had Grain Store on my brunch wishlist for some time, this weekend we ended up here by accident. We had planned to meet my friends Laura and Rob for Sunday brunch at Caravan, but the hour-long wait was incompatible with our hangovers and rumbling stomachs, so we headed next door. Grain Store is a really beautiful space that I had only ever visited for drinks. The brunch menu is slightly unusual compared to the others you might find about town: much like their lunch and dinner menus, they try and keep vegetables and grains at the heart of their dishes, rather than go down the more meat-centric route of many other restaurants. I ordered the yoghurt, chickpea and chorizo pancake (which can also be made without the chorizo), which was hearty and flavoursome, that came topped with a slightly punchy avocado, tomato and jalapeno salsa. The avocado was served chilled, which was a refreshing contrast to the pancake. All of those flavours in one hit made for an excellent breakfast. I also loved that they served coffee in cafetieres to share (couldn’t quite manage one of the breakfast cocktails – sorry.)
This dish is £12.00 with chorizo and £9.50 without
Grain Store, Granary Square, 1-3 Stable Street, London N1C 4AB
