Sunday Lunch at the Chez Mal Brasserie, Malmaison
By Tim Coulston - 9th October 2016
They say Sunday’s are for family, friends and of course food, so we went along to the Chez Mal Brasserie at the Malmaison to check out their new Sunday Lunch menu.
We received a warm welcome, quite literally, with a Bloody Mary from the bar made to your spicy specification. Once seated our waitress talked us through the all-new Sunday offer, basically it’s a three-course meal but with a twist: you get to decide whether you fancy Brunch or Sunday Lunch, great idea!
So we headed to the Chef’s table to get stuck in to the selection of appetizers. You can choose from Chef’s soup of the day and a selection of hor d’oeuvres – bespoke salads, shellfish and sea food cocktails, hand carved serrano ham, iberico, chorizo, salchichon, terrines, artisan breads, cheeses and chutneys…. And the best thing is, it’s all unlimited, so you can go back as many times as you like!

Next up, the big decision… Are you going for Brunch or Lunch?!
On the brunch menu you’ve got the choice of: Eggs Benidict, California Eggs, Malted Blueberry Pancakes or the Big Brunch Breakfast, whereas if you leaning toward the Lunch Menu you can choose from allsorts of tasty treats from thier Classic Mal Burger to Smoked Haddock Fish Cakes, or Pan Fried Seabass to Roasted, Pumpkin Tortelloni, and then of course the Chez Mal Brasserie’s signature Sunday Roasts: USDA Black Augus Picanha Rump or Whole Normandy corn fed Chicken to share.
It’s a tough decision, so we ordered a glass of the Argentinian Malbec to help us decide, of course, we chose to go for one of each, the Big Brunch Breakfast and the Augus Rump Sunday Roast – when they arrived, we were not disappointed!

Now, by this point we were feeling pretty full and had completely forgotten about dessert, so after a short pause and a lovely chat with our waitress we took a look at the menu and once again we were spoilt for choice. What shall we go for: Steamed Sponge, Trifle, or Artisan Cheeses, maybe the Sticky Toffee Pudding or the Crème Brulee? We took a bowl of steamed sponge and a selection of artisan cheeses, which were both delicious – the perfect conclusion to our relaxed Sunday afternoon at the Chez Mal.
If you fancy checking out the new Sunday Lunch offer at the Malmasion, you can book every Sunday between 12.30pm and 4pm, priced at £19.95 for adults and £9.95 for children it’s great value and a fantastic way to spend Sunday, getting together with friends, family and FOOD!
