Fish & Chips. The Sunday Roast. Spotted Dick. These are just some of the meals on the list of many tourists that visit our fair isle – but top of that list will definitely be the classic Full English Breakfast.

It’s the Breakfast of Champions and nothing can beat a good one on a weekend, especially if it’s paired with a pint of fizzy lager, a glass of fizz or better still – a frosty Bloody Mary.

Can you beat it? I’m not sure, but the chefs at Sicilian NQ in the Northern Quarter are giving it a bloody good try with their monumental Full Italian Breakfast.

It’s an Italian twist on this most British of dishes and I have to tell you – it’s very, very good.

Known across the globe for their exceptional culinary scene, it only makes sense that the Italians could tackle the Full Brekkie better than us – and luckily for us – Sicilian NQ haven’t deviated too much from what makes the classic English variation work so well.

For a very reasonable £9 you get the following:

Two Fried Eggs (great for dipping),
Slow-cooked Beef Ragu Arancienetti,
Creamy Parmesan Mushrooms,
Ham & Cheese Potato Crocchetta,
Barolo Italian Sausage
Parma Ham
and Focaccia.

Wonderful. The Full Italian joins a positively overflowing menu of Breakfast treats over at Sicilian NQ, a menu that includes huge platters (with fizz of course), Arancini, Sicilian Eggs Benedict and some impressive homemade sweet baked goods.

They also offer up a BOTTOMLESS option every Sunday, where you can choose a breakfast dish, and then get unlimited booze for 90 minutes. It’s £30 for Prosecco, or £40 for Aperol Spritz or homemade Limoncello.
