I was invited down to sample their new bottomless brunch menu which I was highly surprised by as was flavoursome and filling.

Turtle Bay UK

Turtle Bay UK consists of 43 restaurants across the UK giving those that wants to escape the hustle and bustle of life a Caribbean style escape.

Caribbean cooking is known as a patchwork quilt of colours, textures, and flavours as they are a multi-ethnic tapestry woven from the cuisines of Africa, Europe and Asia.

Turtle Bay UK is a realm of gustatory pleasures and serves over 40 soothing rum drinks. Mouth-watering hot sauces, spice rubs, fragrant marinades and cool chutneys feature in our beach food, to fresh hand-tossed salads, spice wood jerk grills and exotically spiced one pots, perfect for sharing with friends in true Caribbean Limin’ style. Turtle Bay pride themselves on flavours that match the intensity of the tropical sun.

Just sit back relax, take life slow and listen to the sounds of reggae whilst sipping on rum cocktails and feasting on Caribbean jerk and soul food.

Turtle Bay UK will make you feel that you have been transported to a Caribbean island.

Kick Up Rumpus

Upon entering Turtle Bay UK in Brixton wtih my friend Steve we knew we were going to be having a kick up rumpus (a riotous  good time) and we certainly did.

With the sounds of reggae being pumped through the restaurant by the resident DJ and the cleverly divided into different styles making I felt like I had have just been transported to a Caribbean eatery, so colourful.

The waiters at the Turtle Bay UK shack were also a real delight welcoming, very happy and a pleasure to talk adding to the Caribbean vibe.

Sunshine inspired brunching

We sat next to the window in the corner. It was a very cosy spot and whilst chilling within Turtle Bay UK in Brixton listening to the sounds of reggae we could watch the hustle and bustle taking place outside.

After being handed the menu after much thought and recommendation from the friendly waiters I opted for the Big Vegan Grill Down (mushrooms, curried chickpeas, roasted tomatoes, plantain).

Whilst my friend Steve opted for the Big Kingston Grill Down (jerk bacon, beef and pork sausage, mushrooms, curried chickpeas, roasted tomatoes, grilled roti and eggs, the way you like them).

As you can see both brunch dishes looks stunning and colourful.

I am not vegan but I have to say eating my vegan brunch was a real delight and I did not miss not having any meat. Everything was fresh, cooked to perfection and very flavoursome. I particularly loved the plantain which tastes like strong banana but with a much sweeter taste and softer texture. I will certainly be looking at ordering plantain in the future.

Island-inspired beats

Whilst enjoying brunch and our Bellini’s you can feel the Caribbean wash over you as infectious reggae beats such as DJ Bunjy and Tita Lau from Laid Blak, are played throughout the restaurant all day everyday from 11am.

Party on

Turtle Bay UK say they are

“all about slowing down hanging out and feeling good and we have three big loves – rum, reggae and jerk. Sure, we do much more these days but our oh-so-good cocktails, fiery jerk and juicy tracks always remind us of the warmth, spirit and flavours of the Caribbean – in fact, they’re the very things that got us opening our first-ever restaurant. So, what are you waiting for?”

and they certainly are.

Starting a day at Turtle Bay UK was the perfect start to the day with those reggae vibes and a brunch which was full of flavour and the unlimited sunny Sunshine Bellini’s just took my mind to the up coming summer months.

I left Turtle Bay UK in a very happy happy mood.

If you are looking for that feel good vibe and great food to start of your day (or anytime) then I highly recommend visiting one of the Turtle Bay UK restaurants as this will fix you right up.
