A blog about brunch.
Anyway, the place we went is one I've been to twice before. It's called Epicures of Hyndland. Here are links to it's Facebook and it's website, for all you curious Glaswegians. It's very easy to get to if you live in the west end, you just go down Byres Road in the direction of the University, and turn right at the crossroads with Tinderbox on the corner, and continue until you find it (those are rough directions, but as the name suggests it is indeed in Hyndland).

As someone well aware of how important breakfast is and who enjoys actual breakfast food more than almost any other food-genre, I very rarely eat breakfast. A crime, I know and I do love breakfast, but I must confess those ten minutes before a lecture are often better spent in bed.
At Epicures though, the breakfast is definitely worth getting up for. I had my all time breakfast favourite; Eggs Benedict. For those of you that haven't had Eggs Benedict before, it is a poached egg, sat on top of bacon and again on an english muffin, and coated in hollandaise sauce. Which is, in my opinion, perhaps the champion of sauces. Simple too, made just by emulsifying egg yolks and melted butter, normally with some lemon juice of white wine vinegar. Yum. I'm making myself hungry again just thinking about it.
