Soulful Sundays

The amazing Brasa restaurant in Fulham (read our review here) is bringing the US barbeque King, Ashbell McElveen, back to London for their brand new Soulful Sundays.

Soulful Sundays will see McElveen take over the kitchen to produce a Brunch (11am-4pm) and a Supper (6-10pm) menu based around southern soul food, reflecting his passion for big, bold flavours and locally sourced, seasonal ingredients.

The Brunch menu offers a selection of breakfasts like; the Full Cajun with Crayfish & Leek Cajun Spiced Potato Hash, Ashbell’s Bespoke Spicy Cajun Sausages, Eggs, Smoked Cajun Bacon, Crab and Stuffed Mushrooms, and the Full Texan with 250 g Aged British Sirloin Steak, Onion & Mushroom Hash Potatoes, Cowboy Baked Beans, Black Pepper Coated Smoked Bacon and Eggs. Guests can sink their teeth into Ashbell’s Po’ Boy, a New Orleans style sandwich originally created for those unable to afford a sit down lunch. Choose from shrimp, Louisiana gator, grilled soft shell crab or catfish fillets, piled between two halves of toasted French baguette and dressed with tomatoes, lettuce and Cajun mayo.

From the Supper menu, guests can choose between dishes like; Lobster Hash Roll with sweet potato, apple and onion, Pan Sautéed House Smoked Foie Gras served over Seville Orange Flavoured Risotto, British Salt Cod Fritter w Elderflower Clotted Cream Dip and Warm Crab Gratin Dauphines. Those with a mighty appetite can try Ashbell’s Dinosaur Steak, a thick cut 680g T-bone steak seasoned with fresh ground black pepper & Kashmiri Sea Salt, with a side of wild mushroom hash potatoes & smoked onions.

“It’s an absolute pleasure to be opening Soulful Sundays with the team at Brasa,” says Ashbell. “All the elements just fell into place – Brasa’s brilliant Head Chef Danny MacGechan and his kitchen team, the location, the venue – it all works so beautifully and everyone involved is so passionate about it.

Hopefully people will like the idea and the food offering and come down and see us one Sunday. It’ll be a cool place to hang out, meet friends and enjoy good quality food and drink.”

We’ll be off this weekend I think!
