The latest Manchester venue to launch their bottomless brunch offering was an exciting one for me! I am a regular at Revolucion De Cuba and have loved many of their Rum Club events, as well as their 2 for 1 cocktails of an evening after work. The bottomless brunch is not dissimilar to others in Manchester. For £25 you get unlimited drinks between 12-2 and your choice of brunch dish.
I particularly like Revolucion De Cuba during the day. It is light, airy and relaxed, nothing like the busy and loud club style venue it is at weekend. The tables are a mix of booth style and regular chairs with lots of space between them so you don’t feel like you are sat with the people next to you. We settled into a booth tucked away in the corner to make the most of our Saturday lunch time.
The bottomless brunch has a great selection of drinks including prosecco, pints of Mahon, mojitos and bloody marys, making Revolucion De Cuba a great brunch spot if members of your party aren’t keen on fizz.
The Brekkie Burrito is a flour tortilla stuffed with sausage, egg, refried beans, chorizo, jalapeños and cheese. A slice of crispy bacon sits on top with a side of salad. The bacon could have been a touch crispier but the burrito was tasty with a good touch of spice. The salad was a bit of an afterthought and no one touched it on any of the plates, it definitely isn’t needed and the burrito on its own is filling enough.
The Spanish Omelette was particularly good with chorizo and morcilla sausages added into the standard potato omelette, before being smothered with manchego cheese. The manchego is a fairly light cheese so it lets the rich flavours of the two sausages shine through, and chorizo with manchego is my favourite food combination ever. Always a winner for me! I’m not sure why there was avo on toast on the side, I’m not a fan of avocado at all but the toast was welcomed with the omelette.
The Huevos Rancheros is given the Rev De Cuba spin being served on a tortilla with their spicy rum sauce. Spicy black beans, mushrooms and tomatoes are topped with a runny fried egg and a hefty side of patatas. The latter were lightly spiced and perfect for dunking in the yolk. The whole dish worked well together and is a nice yet different option for the veggies out there.
The food arrived quickly so the majority of our 2 hours was spent drinking. I love the choice of drinks but I did feel that we would have probably drunk less, had there been more food. Perhaps it would be an idea to make the food bottomless too in an attempt to encourage people to drink less? It is a small suggestion as we enjoyed both the food and drinks immensely. The staff keep an eye on people to ensure they don’t overindulge so it certainly isn’t a problem. Either way, I have added Revolucion De Cuba to my Saturday lunch time list of spots for a chilled out brunch with my friends to take in more of that delicious omelette, and mojitos of course. There is always room for mojitos.
We were invited to dine as guests of Revolucion De Cuba and were not asked to pay.
