After the ball, we woke up to a fridge full of 'no-breakfast'. I had a mad craving for French toast, so I suggested brunch. S has been suggesting White Friar Grill for the longest time now, so we lazily strolled over. Happy to have another neighbourly food hangout!

I have a terrible time with decisions. I was stuck between my craving for sugar and wanting the Huevos rancheros, not to mention the pulled pork eggs benedict, gambas eggs benedict and belgian waffles. Now, belgian waffles are not exactly french toast, soft, fluffy and eggy with syrup. But you had me at “caramelised bananas”.

The solution to all dilemmas of desire, food desire that is - you should have both, right Katie? ALL or Nothing. I ordered the pulled pork eggs Benedict (which is sometimes duck, I’m told) , S got the baby back ribs with eggs and chips and I was tempted to order the waffles to finish. It turned out that there was no pulled pork so the decision was made - I was having Gambas & Eggs Benny and finishing with Nutella and caramelised banana waffles with Chantilly cream.

S was feeling like some juice so the ‘Pick me up juice' menu is as follows: [Everything But the Kitchen Sink] beetroot, apple, carrot, and ginger. Loving the selection of drinks & juices to tickle any fancy; sober or still paying

We thought brunch was great! the Ribs were better than some of the BBQs in town and my gamabas were a filling, but lighter alternative to the usual meat on meat on meat on eggs. Bed of baby spinach, avocado salsa, poached egg and citrus hollandaise was a zingy spin. Great fresh combination to complement the shrimp, but slight bit surprising when you taste the acidity of the hollandaise.

 

Apologies for the quickie photos, too tired to carry the baby (camera).
