Pizarro as most will know is a larger restaurant than Jose, takes bookings (though not for brunch) and serves larger plates allowing for a three course format if desired. For brunch, there's a choice of 'brunch specials' from the board supplemented by a separate main menu that in total gives a wide choice of food. Some old favourites like croquetas are not available till the full main menu appears later in the day, but being only the third Sunday of brunch service, we wouldn't be surprised if things evolve over the coming weeks.
The main brunch items have a lovely Sunday brunch feel to them and include scrambled eggs which can be served with Morcilla (black pudding), Manchego (cheese), or Chorizo/Jamon, while fried egg, chips and chorizo is a great thing to wake up to and be excited about on any Sunday morning. The star of the brunch menu however was the Iberico burger served with cheese, dressed lettuce and caramelised onions, all in a super light bun also with patatas fritatas (chips) and makes the visit to Pizarro worth it for that alone.
With four around the table, we were also able to receive more dishes from the main menu. A plate of Iberico ham of course, prawns and some fish dishes (cod and hake), pigs cheeks, and desserts to finish.
