Pod Food had a really narrow window for breakfast, but I got the motivation to get up and get there. I was lucky enough to book that morning for a table for two but when we got there, they were completely booked out for the morning.
A bit cold still to happily eat outside, but it would be beautiful during the warmer Spring.
A few hot beverages to warm us up.
Chai tea ($4.00) with soy milk (50c extra) and flat white (one size only $4.50). I was too busy talking to the waitress while Timmy went ahead and destroyed the pattern that was so lovingly created by the barista.
One more coffee because the first one wasn’t large enough.
So many things I wanted to try, I found it so hard to choose that I narrowed it down to four options and asked the waitress to surprise me.
Vanilla bean pancakes, rhubarb, butter caramel sauce (usually served with maple but they ran out that day), white chocolate ice-cream ($15.00). The white chocolate flavour must have been really subtle, so subtle we couldn’t realy taste it. Not much taste in the pancake itself but the crumb and the butter caramel sauce definitely made up for it.
Free range fried egg, crumbed pork belly, fried cherry tomatoes, caramelised onion and sourdough ($16.00). The first thing you could smell was the caramelised onion, it made my eyes widen with excitment. The next thing I notice was that there was only one small portion of the crumbed pork belly. ‘I’ll have to eat this sparingly in every bite’ I thought to myself. The bread was delicious, it had a crunchy crust without being chewy or hard. A bit on the small side but it was really good.
A inside look into the amazing crumbed pork belly. It’s so sad that there was only one.
