Egg Break, Notting Hill, London

Egg Break, Notting Hill, London

The humble egg has always been an integral part of my family’s cuisines. No matter what meal of the day or what occasion, it’s there in one form in another. A quaint little cafe that celebrates the egg in London is Egg Break, based in […]

The Potato Project, Soho, London

The Potato Project, Soho, London

I was surprised to see a potato chain, similar to Spudbar, operating here in London. I was also surprised to see my Mealpal-ordered Chicken Curry Potato turn into a Pesto and mozzarella one (due to being sold out). Another unintended vegetarian lunch, sigh. This meal left me […]

Supagrind, Melbourne

Supagrind, Melbourne

A tad corporate, Supagrind was loaded with the suits on the Friday morning I popped in for a breakfast coffee with my friend Jo. It’s a nicely fitted out store, with the coffee functionalities in the front to cater for the stop-and-go customers in a rush. Based on the singular dish I tried, not sure if the food is quite yet excellent but it is certainly well priced and the fast service makes it worthwhile keeping in mind for a hurried stop.

I found a table inside with some fun slidable tables and ordered the Sweet Potato Rosti ($14.50) with bacon, poached eggs, apple cider hollandaise and honey. This arrived nice and quickly but something felt a bit missing for me. Not sure if the sweet notes really belonged with anything other the bacon and I think if the hash was a bit more crunchier that it would have been elevated to amazing. Some of the flavour notes were too subtle, a few tweaks and it’s there. Coffee was a bit on the more average for me as well, according to Jo it might be due to the “over-extraction resulting in bitter notes developing”. Yeah, that.

Dessert Story, Melbourne CBD

Dessert Story, Melbourne CBD

I reckon Dessert Story is a pretty big deal around these parts, with a Taiwanese/ Asian styled dessert and snack menu that offers plenty of options as well as lateish hours. Sad to see the Swanston St one close, that one had a nicer toilet. […]

Nandos, Fitzroy, Melbourne

Nandos, Fitzroy, Melbourne

As my British friends have taught me, I grabbed a “cheeky Nandos” for a quick takeaway meal utilising some extreme couponing on the way. I went with the quarter chicken and two sides of the sweet potato fries as well as the peri-peri fries. I […]
