Situated on the hustle of Battersea Rise is quaint restaurant Three Little Birds. Having just completed park run I nipped home to changed and make myself look slightly more presentable along with grabbing my brunch date before heading over to check it out.
The restaurant has a Jamaican twist inspired by owner April’s roots, who after a stint on the Apprentice back in 2015 opened up her first boutique café and rum bar in Brixton. Today we have come to the second of the two restaurants on Battersea Rise which opened in April earlier this year.
Arriving at midday has left us both ravenous, myself hungry after running 5km, my worse-for-wear date on the other hand is looking for something to soak up the sins of a good Friday night! We are greeted by Calia and a shot of Rum which quickly warmed us up from the chill that has suddenly hit London.
We start with the avocado on toast with pepper jelly, one I am definitely going to be taking home to recreate! How I have never thought to have this combination I don’t know, but one to add to my brunch favourites. Following this we are both tucking into jerk chicken burgers and popular Jamaican brunch dish of ackee and saltfish. Each dish washed down with a shot of Rum which both Calia and April are generously handing out.
Time for a longer drinks which we both feel is now acceptable having just gone midday, plus we are already three or four shots deep by now. Scouring the Jamaican inspired cocktail menu we opt for a dark and stormy and rum punch to start us off! The dark and stormy perfectly washes down the saltfish and jerk chicken burgers followed by the rum punch which has been made with banana liquor giving it a sweet kick!
Before leaving and about to pop April tempts us into trying some of her carrot cake, made fresh in the early hours of Saturday with a whole lot of love, so we couldn't say no, to a first, second and third piece...they were small pieces in our defence! Last but not least we squeeze
in a final dish of banana pancakes with bacon and rum maple syrup, delicious!
