Electric Diner

It’s obvious by now that some of my favourite things in London include: brunch and Notting Hill! So I’m back in my favourite part of this city with yet another Saturday (or Sunday) morning spot for you.

Located in the colourful Portobello Road, the Electric Diner is adjacent to one of the oldest cinemas in London, Electric Cinema and below the members’ club, Electric House. They boast a French-American, fuss-free menu that is casual but definitely satisfying.

The Diner opens at 8 am for breakfast, switches to an all-day menu around 12 pm and serves until late at night with dinner lasting until midnight on Friday and Saturday or 10 pm on Sunday.

Don’t let it’s relaxed feel fool you as this is one of THE spots to be on weekends with queues of up to an hour (as I found out the other weekend).

You can be seated in the large, red, American diner-esque sofa booths or by the bar to watch the skillfull chefs prepare your meal, served as soon as they’re ready!

The Bloody Mary at the Electric Diner is one of their ‘specials’ and you’ll definitely find one, two or three of these at almost every table. They also boast twenty different type of beers, a wine list and some specially made cocktails.

We arrived around two pm so were presented with the All Day Menu. We started with the Single Cheeseburger which came with perfectly done beef patties, melted cheese, and a house relish sauce, topped off with a slice of pickle.

You can’t order a burger and not have fries right? So next came hand cut Chips with a side of mayonnaise.

You may also know by now that fries are my favourite part of any meal!

This was by far one of the best dishes I’ve had – Honey Fried Chicken, Chilli and Sesame Seeds. Sweet, sticky, crispy and they even come with little towels to wipe off all that sticky-ness. I preferred to just lick my fingers clean though!

I’m definitely tempted to drop the Electric a call and request the recipe for this!

I was far too stuffed to order this but doesn’t it just look delish?

The Electric Diner is buzzing with the usual Notting Hill crowd, trying to cure their morning hangovers, catching up with friends or just wanting to be seen at one of the coolest spots on Portobello Road. I would recommend booking a table before making your way here though as it does get absolutely packed on weekends!

The closest tube stations are Notting Hill Gate, Westbourne Park and Ladbroke Grove and you can find out more information here.
