It was by total coincidence that Zeba Husain mentioned, on the last day of fashion week, that Xander’s was opening tomorrow (Sunday) and we need to catch up over lunch. It was a totally last minute thing that I decided to take mother to Ensemble, knowing at the back of my mind that Xander’s was beckoning too. It was!
Walked in, to be joined within minutes by Ammar Belal, Aaminah Haq and Hamza Tarrar, who beat me to being the ‘first official customers’ by ordering first. Must say Aaminah’s Eggs Benedict looked absolutely yum and the perfect antidote to four days of back to back fashion. Tried and tested the Tomato, Basil and Sweetcorn Soup which was laden with flavour. The open face roast beef sandwich was perfection and the Caeser’s Salad had a heavenly crunch, making food almost sinful! Xander’s, I can easily say, is going to be a frequent guilty pleasure!
