With so many steakhouses in London, it’s always tough to decide on your favourite. How about steak for brunch? Let me introduce you to Arlos…

The great thing about this place is that you don’t have to wait for dinner to have your steak and eat it. We went for brunch and enjoyed a variety of dishes.

They have something for everyone from tasty vegetarian options to meaty steak inspired dishes. We loved all the dishes from these ‘Woodland Mushrooms’ on sourdough with spinach. I think mushrooms can sometimes be overlooked but done right they can be really delicious. I love everything meaty so I added a side of bacon which I probably didn’t need as the portions are very generous.

We also went for the ‘Other Arlo’s’ which is a perfect plate for vegetarians of spiced and battered halloumi, tomatoes, roast mushrooms, spinach and pouched eggs on sourdough. I wasn’t sure what to expect from the battered halloumi but it tasted good and the extra chorizo we added as a side was a real winner.

So I was saving the main event until last, this tasty and indulgent sandwich is guaranteed to fix any hangover. I am salivating just thinking about ‘The Croque – Moodame.’ It is a cheesy steak love affair and they are not stingy on either accounts. Succulent melt in the mouth steak dripping with toasted cheese and a fried egg for good measure, with a side of fries of course. It was unreal and I highly recommend it!

If you’ve not had brunch @arlos_steak you’re not doing it right! The ULTIMATE HANGOVER CURE right here 🙌🏽 This is the filthy but satisfyingly amazing Croque Moo-dame. A sourdough toastie packed with all the cheesiness and steak topped with a fried egg. Loved all the dishes here and the smoothies are delish! Awesome spot with the friendliest staff … look out for Moo-re cheesy posts soon and more cheesy chat🐄🧀😆🙈 #arlos #battersea #clapham #sundaybrunch #sunday #brunch #steak #chesse #foodporn #londonfood #london #foodie #harvtinisldn #foodstagram #lovefood #yolkporn #croquemonsieur #croquemadame #cheeseporn #eater #instafood #igfood #hangover #eats #londonlife #londonist #tasty #toastie #totastemaker #telltimeout

The menu is designed to cater for everyone and is perfect for a catch up with friends or family gathering. It even has a little Arlo’s menu for mini steak lovers or macaroni cheese as an alternative.

In summary, if you love steak or cheese or both this is a must visit and you won’t leave disappointed. The portions are large and we were full to the brim but when the waitress brings the dessert menu and tells you about the amazing chocolate brownie how can you refuse. We shared it between the three of us and it was just the right amount of sweetness to end our amazing meal.

I cannot fault this place, from the food, service and atmosphere it was all wonderful and I can’t wait to visit again.
