Wagyu Beef Burger – house-made wagyu beef patty, bacon mayonnaise, Jack cheese, cos lettuce, red onion, fresh tomato & cornichons on a brioche bun served with chippies $20.00AUD. This reminds me of the Prospect Burger from Prospect Espresso, I would say the Prospect Burger was more delicious than this Wagyu burger, not just the meat / taste, even the texture; PB’s brioche bun was very yummy as well. So, I would say PB wins. However, chips wise, this chippies was more tasty.       008

Ham Hock Benedict – poached eggs, smoked ham hock, hollandaise on multigrain bread $16.50AUD. This also reminds me of the Truffled Brioche from Prospect Espresso. The Truffled Brioche was great, however I prefer the bread from here, because the bread used in the Truffled Brioche was far too soft and buttery for me. This one was more dense feeling and crunchy.                                                     010

Nevertheless, still great food. We are blessed. 011

Elceed

We were thinking of getting food from Fandango, but bad luck, it was not open today. So we went to Elceed instead…               IMG_9327

And we got the bacon and egg roll w/ mixed lettuce, tomato, and beetroot relish $12.50. It was really so-so. *not recommended* IMG_9330

Quote of the Day:

Never be afraid to try something new, because life gets boring when you stay within the limits of what you already know.

Latte for me; the latte was a very light one, even lighter than Fandango.                                           006

Chai Latte for Mr. Choi; a very milky flavour chai.007

Mr. Choi’s breakfast, poached eggs on grain sourdough w/ bacon, chorizo and kasundi.  008

My breakfast was field mushrooms and sauted kale on toasted ciabatta w/ roast parsnip puree and poached eggs $16.50. The kale and parsnip puree were SO GOOD!                 009

A beautiful clean plate. We always finish our dishes, which I think it’s a very good thing. 010

It’s time to head to office.                                      005

Have not had this yummy for a while. Decided to have this as after lunch snack, to brighten up my office day.                                              IMG_9291
