Bought these reasonable cheap flowers from the florist on Friday for my Saturday Brunch. I thought it would be nice to have flowers during our brunch. And could take some flower photos at the park after our brunch. Unfortunately, it rained after we went to the park.
Warmly received by the floor staff after arrival. Lucky I’ve booked a table because it seems really busy with walk-ins and small private function going in the back room and courtyard. I love my hot chocolate with marshmallows, coffee is fine but I get tummy upset after having it.
I always make up my mind before going somewhere to have meal. I’m determined to have Moroccan Eggs and Clafoutis this time. I guess its the most intriguing item on the winter brunch menu and I had waited for quite sometime for clafoutis to get back on special menu. As usual, someone just couldn’t pass Pork Belly…… So we ordered Moroccan Eggs, French Eggs, with sides of mushrooms and hashbrowns, and Clafoutis as dessert.
CHAJANG! This is the pork belly —- French Figure Myth: Fried eggs with house-made Paris Butter, oven-baked pork belly and crispy shoestring fries! I’m not a big fan of fried eggs but with the aromatic spiced butter, fried eggs tasted really yummy! Gave away my coffee egg in exchange for half of the fried egg. Pork belly tasted really yummy too! The belly skin wasn’t cooked too crispy so it’s easy to bite and chew. I love pork crackling but they are crispy and hard to chew, so sometimes, soft and tender pork crackling is gentle to my teeth.
and TADAA!! My Moroccan Eggs: eggs slowly cooked in coffee, serve with yummy vegetables (sweet potatoes, Chinese radish, chickpea etc) date tagine, tahini yogurt, harissa and olive. The combinations of this dish were absolutely divine! It’s beyond words could describe! I often heard people said this is probably the scariest (disgusting) dish, because they couldn’t imagine eggs cooked in coffee.
But as Malaysian, I grew up drinking black coffee from ceramic cup that has half-boiled eggs residue. My grandma, my mum, my god-grandparents, told me it’s absolutely brilliant to drink coffee like that. So it wasn’t so difficult for me to accept 8 hours coffee eggs!
Anyway, back to the wild imaginations of how bad coffee eggs can be, some people were courageous enough to try, and they told me, never regret to take a leapt of faith as it was such a beautiful dish, carefully made that all flavours compliment each other.
If you’re Adelaidean or just travelling in Adelaide, you should come and try Tin Cat’s Moroccan Eggs! It makes ordinary weekends breakfast become superb extraordinary!
Coffee eggs with date tagine and harissa. Although this dish is made with Middle-Eastern influence, but somehow it made me feel home. Partly because the choices of ingredients and especially the harissa, has hints of my Malaysian taste buds. I can’t wait for my next round of Moroccan Eggs~
From my seat, I could see another side of the room, with SALA’s exhibition still hanging on the wall. I heard other visitors said they really like the colourful glass light decorated in the middle of the room. I, on the other hand, love the big side window, very nice lighting, give the cafe a nice and cozy touch of vibe.
Finishing our breakfast with cherry clafoutis! FINALLY, I got the chance to eat cherry clafoutis ♥♥♥ It’s yummy yummy yummy as expected! Moist and yummy, with really nice vanilla ice cream.
