Are you guys up for a treat?? *grin*

With my terrible procrastinating habit, i have successful accumulated 3 breakfast post all mashed up in ONE post!! 

I've recently founded a Breakfast club among 4 other friends..
 Thank god for all day breakkie.. If not for it, i bet we won't even know how scrambled eggs taste like..

After years of studing in Melbourne, i've finally decided that it's time to explore some real Aussie breakkie.. The wonders of Google have introduced me to Birdman Eating. 

Their menu is modern and refreshing, with brunch available until 5pm (YAY!!), dinner from midday and no time constraints on when to enjoy dessert. Special of the day are listed on the blackboard and changed daily.

The comprehensive breakfast list includes offerings from toasted banana bread with Couverture chocolate, hazelnut and olive oil spread to black pudding with braised tomato, potato hash and baked eggs.

Birdman Eating is nothing like our familiar "big breakfast", poached egg with hollandaise sauce what-not.. But i'm not complaining, since i'm set to try out something different from now on.. *fingers crossed*.. Now now.. Don't you dare to roll your eyes on me!!! Let's have a lil' faith shall we?? *grin*

There's even the old favourites of Coco Pops or a boiled egg with soldiers. But seriously, i could never justify paying 5aud for Coco Pops.. I'm chinaman like that.. 

I've been converted. Latte to flat white...    

The Genovese coffee is okay, though below par for the title of "best i've ever tasted". Yes, living in Melbourne gives me a right to have high expectation for coffee.. =P

 Definitely an addict.. How am i gonna survive with bad coffee when i go back to KL???

(Sleepy-o-meter: My level of need-for-coffee is reflected by the size of my eyebag)

 Eileen's Chai Latte comes with some complicated science instruments.. 

 I was really excited to order those Baked  Eggs that Birdman Eating is known for.. But was disappointed to find out that the only baked egg choice left (among 4 choices) didn't sound that appealing to me. So i settled for the corn, broccoli and ricotta hotcakes served with creamy smoked trout, avocado and Spanish onion. 

My dish was weird but a weird way.. The hotcakes were bland on its own.. But goes well with the creamy smoked trout mixture.. What i thought was a bit turning off were those fish bones in the mixture.. It was a bit of hardwork trying to pluck out every single bit of them.. 

Smoked pulled pork, shredded lettuce mint open sandwich with roast pineapple sorbet

Dinesh's disappointing angus beef sandwich.. Turns out to look more like shaved beef slices.. We almost refused to accept it as our order because we were sorta expecting like a huge slab of angus steak..  Bland tasting and unsatisfying..

 Brioche french toast, marmalade glazed bacon, orange pekoe tea ice 
cream, maple syrup

I thought that the idea of mixing ice cream to a savory dish was weird but it turns out to be quite weirdly-good!! haha defintely a recommendation *thumbs up*

Breakfast club: Nesh
Say hello to my twins eye bags- Momo and Chacha..  :xwhatevah:

THE Birdman hovering above our heads

Matt n Moi

I told Matt to help me take a picture of the interior cause i thought it was embarrassing for me to just walk in with my camera and start snapping pictures of random patrons.. He rebutted: "You're already wearing THAT THING on your head, how shy can u get??" -.- whats wrong with my beret?? 


Auction Room
Who's got the highest bid??

Full of character and huge open spaces, former auction room, cum café in fashionable Errol St. 

Warehouse, industrial and humour in the decor. Unpolished wood, raw brick walls.. This is an exact picture of my Dream cafe!! 

Another Melbourne favo when it comes to breakfast.. Explains the crowd on a Saturday afternoon.. 

Ever since Tioks got her new car, she offers to fetch me around and is excited to explore places where previously needed to tram and walk what-not.. haha i'm definitely not complaining with my new chauffeur..  

We were seated after a brief wait on a busy day..

 Some people sure do love their breakfast

 Flat white was average- in fact, i was disappointed because i have such high hopes prior my visit.. Loyal Auction Room supporters might js shoot me down after my comments on their favourite coffee. 

 I wanted to sit outdoor because it was such a sunny nice day.. In melb, you don't always get this opportunity.. As they say, Melbourne's weather is like a woman experiencing BAD PMS... 

 Tiok's poached egg on sour dough with extra mushroom and bacons..

She isn't very adventurous when it comes to food. Clearly.

My knuckle sandwiches

Everything was excellent and 2 thumbs up.. Ham hock braised for hours and hours until it is falling apart, rocket (YUCK!!), piccalilli (made in-house English-style with cauliflower florets, courgettes, beans, cornichons, seeded mustard and turmeric) and Montgomery's aged cheddar toasted into a Dench ciabatta roll. It comes served with a pickled chilli. The meat retained its juiciness and tender to bites..

 Being explained what's Syphon Coffee.. A rather interesting lesson learnt.. I would love to try this on my second visit!!

Do take a look at how syphon coffee works.. 

I wanna get one and try it at home too!!! =)


Madame SouSou at Fitzroy
A French Restaurant nestled in the South end of Brunswick Street, 
rich with ambience and atmosphere

"THE" must-have 

When Fat Latte and Skinny Latte meet

Tiok's English Breakfast tea.

Eileen's Chai Latte

The legendary as much raved about

I always like to be the one who tries to be different.. haha
So i ordered my usual smoked salmon with poached egg drizzled in hollandaise sauce. I'm a big fat sucker for smoked salmon and oily food doesn't do my tummy good in mornings.. 

Verdict: Coffee was strong, palatable
Service was attentive, waitresses were surprisingly lively on a sunday morning. (while i was half dead)
Highly recommend "big breakfast" lover to try out THE sousou breakfast!! you'll never regret =)
