Turkish eggs at Kopapa appear on one too many Best Brunch in London lists. So I was thrilled when Melissa scored a prime time reservation at the Covent Garden restaurant and asked me to join her.

The restaurant is located off Monmouth Street at the famous Seven Dials, a spot which continues to challenge my navigation skills to this day. But as soon as I made it there, I got trigger happy with my camera!

Kopapa is one of Kiwi chef Peter Gordon’s ventures. Note: you can also try these much talked-about Turkish eggs at his other restaurant, The Providores and Tapa Room.

KopapaThe interior is rather plain, but stylish with big windows and simplistic furniture. I thought the floor tiling was the highlight of the decor.

Even though we were completely stuffed after our fatty brunch, Mel and I decided to split a Crosstown doughnut because why not?


And then we needed to walk it all off so we strolled around Covent Garden. After all, walking around the confusing non-gridded streets of London continues to be the highlight of living here.
