On one of my -very productive- days scrolling the internet, I came across the word ‘fernweh’.
Fernweh is a consuming longing to be somewhere you’ve never been. I wasn’t sure I really understood it at the time, but it all made sense as soon as I stepped into Mac and Wild in Fitzrovia.
The brick walls, the raw wooden tables, the casual-meets-refined atmosphere…
It all collided and made me want to turn right back and head on to the Highlands.
But with over 50 different labels of whisky, home-bottled cocktails and a whole shelf full of pickles, Mac and Wild has strong arguments to help you postpone the fernweh urge…
… and settle for Scottish brunch instead!
Starting with a classic: Scottish breakfast.
Loads of brown food, and pretty much every single kind of meat patty you can possibly think of.
It might be a cardiologist’s worst nightmare (even though Mac & Wild’s version is surprising un-greasy!), but things don’t get much better than that…
… unless of course you go for the Veni-Moo.
Voted UK & London’s best burger for two years running, Mac and Wild signature dish is an absolute beauty!
…especially if you decide to add candy bacon to the juicy beef-venison-caramelised onion-bearnaise masterpiece.
Quite simply burger-perfection.
All washed down with cocktails & a few drops of scotch…
… plus some Irn-Bru (it would have been wrong not to!)
Its bubblegum taste was the perfect introduction to our beast of a dessert.
‘I shouldn’t but I will‘: Dark chocolate Nemesis, salted caramel sauce, orange, almonds, vanilla ice cream & taffy crumble.
The ultimate indulgence and one of the many, many reasons to get to Mac & Wild very soon!
Bangin’ cocktails, eye-rolling-ly good food, all served by dynamic and passionate staff…
… Oh, and have I mentioned that they take bookings too?
Brunch winner right there!
Mac & Wild, 65 Great Titchfield St, London W1W 7PS
