When it comes to food, I like variety. I love trying new cuisines, new cafes & restaurants and when dining at the same place, I always try something different from the menu, especially for breakfast (unlike my husband who always has the Big Breakfast with scrambled eggs).
So after reading about Baffi & Mo in Redfern on Sydney food-blogger The Unbearable Lightness of Being Hungry, I booked Jay in to visit for brunch on Sunday.
It was no easy feat getting my husband there. He basically whined the entire 7 minute drive and the virility of his whinge was directly proportionate to the distance we put between ourselves and FFF (our usual weekend brekkie cafe)!
But get him there I did.
Jay orders The Big Breakfast which comes with potato hash, bacon, eggs “your way” (that’s scrambled for him), sausage, roasted tomato & mushrooms.
He doesn’t like the Hash, which tastes like it was made a few hours ago and the mushrooms still have their whole stalk which are chewy. He likes the eggs, bacon and sourdough toast.
I order the Potato hash stack with double-smoked ham, avocado, fresh tomato, asparagus and lemon dressed rocked topped with a poached egg.
I like everything except the Potato Hash. Again, it tastes as if it was cooked in the morning and left out. It’s basically rock hard. But the egg, salad & ham are nice and the lemon dressing is just zesty enough for my tastes.
We both have hot drinks (soy chai latte for Jay & long black for me) and they are good.
