It’s so nice not having to wake up to an alarm clock for a solid 2 weeks (or close to it in my case)!
So how’s everyone enjoying their holiday break? Are ya’ll having as much trouble as we are in finding a decent place to eat out at that’s open during the Chrissy break? 😛 We encounter the same problem every year! Hehe.
Seeing that it was my second visit there, I had a good idea of what was on offer at the cafe.
House made boudin noir; $15.50
Unfortunately, not much stood out to me from their menu on this visit so I ordered something a bit more ‘different’ – the house made boudin noir served with smoked tomato, poached egg, bacon and rye sour dough. The kitchen really pushed it to the edge with the toast and boudin noir, both appeared to be on the end of the ‘burnt’ end of the stick for me, but you might disagree with me. Either way, I wasn’t a fan. Plus, I found it rather impractical to have a runny poached egg served on a flat board. Good thing our table wasn’t on a slant of some sort else my poached egg would’ve been slanting and sliding! 😉
Quinoa bircher muesli; $12.50
Sam, the cleanest eater from our lot ordered the quinoa bircher muesli that came with seasonal poached and fresh fruit, vanilla labne and chia seeds. It came out pretty as a picture as we all took turns taking snaps of the colourful bowl before us. Then the excitement quickly wore off once Sam took a spoonful… then 2. He wasn’t particular fond of the muesli and eventually replaced the bowl with a freshly squeezed juice instead. Such a shame cause it looked so pretty!
Spiced Korean pulled pork bun; $18.00
Bernie dappled in their lunch menu and ordered the bulgogi pulled pork bun with cucumber kimchi, kewpie mayo, sriracha and a side of chips. From her account, the meat was rather dry and the kim chi punch was rather mute and mild. But the saviour? Those crispy chips!
A rather disappointing experience for our group that day. Maybe we ordered the wrong things? Or maybe they had an off day? Either way, after being here two times now, it’s time I continue on with ticking off places on my list that just never seems to get shorter! Bring on 2015! 🙂
