Having taken on approximately 12,000 extra calories, so far, in his selfless search for Muswell Hill’s best value Full English Breakfast, The Wattmeister’s lycra was at stretching point.
Some serious cycling would have to be done to burn off these excesses. Laps of Regents Park, countless hill climb repetitions of Swains Lane and several long sorties out into Hertfordshire with his Muswell Hill Peloton clubmates have helped him to maintain his svelte physique:
Resuming his mission, stomach rumbling, The Wattmeister found himself in Feast on the Hill, in Fortis Green Road.
Ambience: very pleasant, tea room/restaurant hustle and bustle, mix of shoppers, laptop gazers, eccentrics and breakfast reviewers. Feast wifi.
Cost: Full English £8.95 including black americano coffee.
Content: 1 sausage, 2 slices bacon, 1 half of grilled tomato, 1 fried egg, generous portion of baked beans, 2 light and fluffy hash browns, 1 medium sized mushroom, 2 slices of toast, choice of condiments and sauces.
The big question is: what happened to the other half of the tomato? TW never had the guts to ask. Never mind, this was a cracking breakfast served on a hot plate with good service in nice surroundings.
The Wattmeister normally eats like he cycles….fast and furious, but Feast on the Hill had a curious effect on the ageing baroudeur (definition: courageous cyclist), inducing him to pass the time in a leisurely manner.
Score: 9 watts/ 10 watts
