When I had conquered Hells Gate and crossed the finish line, there was one thing on my mind…
Either way, it was pleasant to drink, even though the soy wasn’t topped with micro-froth. It was probably the brand of soy they used that was letting them down.
For food, I ordered Elmo’s Breakfast with tomatoes, avocado, hash browns and bacon, but with the additional poached egg and gluten-free bread. It arrived shortly afterwards looking spectacular, with a comment from the waitress that it was her favourite breakfast ever.
I have to say that after finishing this plate off, it is one of the best breakfasts I’ve had. My first bite was a piece of avocado on some hash brown and it was magnificent! The moist and creamy texture of the ‘alligator pear’ combined with the salty crispiness of the golden hash brown was heaven!
After a few bites of the perfectly cooked, quality bacon and juicy fried tomato, I pierced the egg, and from the gash bled a sticky flow of sunshine!
The gluten-free bread was the perfect sponge. Instead of being dense and gummy like sourdough, the bread was light, fluffy and absorbent. I ate everything with everything else and at equal paces. I just wanted to try all the flavours with each other. A thoroughly enjoyable and filling breakfast!
I’d like to say that I’ll be back soon for a scrumptious repeat but it’s… it’s just a bit too far to travel, especially if I have a hangover, and if I’m going to do a massive mission for breakfast, I’d sooner go down to Las Chicas in Balaclava for a Bikini Blowout, Brekky Burrito or a BLAT. It is, after all, my favourite breakfast joint ever – one that I haven’t been to since I started blogging because I moved to the northern suburbs, but when I do… you’ll be the first to know about it!
