My love of brunch has now earned me some ridicule from my friends – so in true form I am enjoying the jokes and continuing to eat more post 8am, pre 9am goodness!
I have been Insta-stalking Cafe Strange Brew for what seems like forever. I finally took myself through the filter and into the cafe to taste their works of art!
We settled into our little corner table in the teeny cafe (they’re moving to a bigger place across the street next month) and I took my seat on the window bench amidst scatter cushions and beneath a gorgeous origami-swan-mobile-decoration. I particularly liked those as I’m currently rewatching Prison Break and it felt symbolic (viewers will know what I mean).
The Stornoway Stack
This was a feast of a dish – toast topped with a substantial portion of Stornoway black pudding, two beautifully poached eggs and grilled mushroom. It was served with homemade chilli ketchup which was absolutely delicious. This isn’t my ideal dish – even though I love all the ingredients – I just would find it too heavy to eat the whole lot! The taste I had was plenty for me and the flavours were just beautiful.
Now this is my kind of dish. I was all set to order a different dish (Salmon Eggs Encotte) and then I bumped into a friend who told me that she had food envy over this dish. I decided to learn from her ‘mistake’ and go for it and I am SO glad I did. The beautifully fresh (just LOOK at that yolk!) soft poached eggs in a bed of warm garlic-infused yoghurt, topped with fresh coriander, chilli oil and served with soft ‘n’ warm pittas. It was a taste sensation which is actually pretty light too.
It’s a thumbs up from me.
