a.k.a the cafe in my header image.
Back at the place where I had my very 1st brunch when I first came to Australia ♡.I remember when we first went in 2012, when they realised we were sharing, they gave us more at the same price. Although their portions have decreased a little, this is still my number 1 go to place for brunch simply because it is slightly below average brunch prices in Melbourne (~$23). Also, I have NEVER had a bad impression of their food.
Everything was made to perfection. I recommend to share this between 2 people or just don’t eat anything before this!!!
The pork belly wasn’t too fatty like a siew yoke (click to see what it is) and the potato hash was crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. Comparable to a MacDonald’s hash browns – sounds like a bad reference but srsly, they have the BEST hash browns.
They used shimeji and enoki mushrooms in this dish which makes it really interesting. Because enoki is kinda stringy while shimeji is just, well, like a cup mushroom you can get at woollies.
I usually get the big breakfast because its really simple with bacon and mushrooms on toast etc but I am currently in the potato hash craze right now ~〔´∇｀〕~.
Also, really sorry for the bad description of the food, I was just busy talking the entire time, catching up with an old pal so I didn’t savour the food as much as I should have. You should definitely give this place a go if you’re nearby!
