Notting Hill – the blogger’s haven. Idyllic Instagram backgrounds galore bring flocks of bloggers for photoshoots everyday in the Capital city. So why not make a morning of it and grab a bite in Notting Hill’s brand new healthy living eatery – Jusu Brothers. The boyf and I were invited to try out their Summer menu a few weeks back on our day trip to LDN town and we we’re totally overwhelmed by the intense flavours on the menu. Spoilers, I know – but this place is definitely worth dropping by if you’re in the area.
To start, we decided to order a few beverages to wet out appetites. Usually, or order of two lattes would suffice but we’d already stopped for a coffee (£5.95) 30 minutes before – the ideal time to try something a little different. Alix opted for a Majime (, a concoction of Açai, banana, blueberries, guarana, and apple which was super fruity and a very generous size aswell! One thing’s for sure, if you’re a smoothie enthusiast, you’re going to fall for the Jusu Brothers.
I went for a something a little different, a Black Latte (£4.00). Yup, I may have ordered it just for the ‘gram – but it was a really unique milky experience. The Black Latte is your choice of milk alternative (I chose homemade coconut on a recommendation) with cleansing activated charcoal. The taste is really strange, but it’s quite moreish as a drink. I couldn’t finish all of it as the taste is quite intense, but it was definitely worth trying for the photo at least!
There was plenty of choice when it came to choosing something to nom on, honestly it was hard to make a decision. I opted for the French Toast (£8.00) which came topped with almond & hazelnut butters, maple syrup, and coconut sugar – scrummy! The dish was presented beautifully and I really loved that there was so much fresh fruit on the plate also, it really needed that tart kick! Queue the red berry jam, which really did complete the dish.
On the other hand, my boyfriend decided on something a little more special… literally. Chose the Jusu Brother’s special of the day which was a a Poke bowl filled to the brim with quinoa, raw tuna, tofu, avocado, and more. I’m not sure how much they’ll charge for this one once it goes on the main menu this autumn (yes, seriously!) but it was around £8-£10 on the specials board. Was it worth the price? Abso-bloody-lutely. I wish I ordered this dish as it was so fresh, tasty, and best of all – healthy. Plus the portion size really is generous, perfect for brunch.
The Jusu Brothers was an experience for both the blogger and the foodie in me, and will remain up there on the top of my list of brunchin’ destinations during shooting days down in Notting Hill. The chaps in there are more than lovely, and if you need recommendations, they can certainly point you in the right direction. Needing a (very) instagrammable but flavour-full Notting Hill brunch location? Pop in to see the Jusu Brothers!
