Middletown was brunch haven. We met up with my Melbourne friend, Vickie Liu (check out her fabulous Instagram @vickiee_yo) one weekend at Pahran's New Kid On The Block.
We started off with beautifully brewed matcha latte and Coffee Waffles. It was the prettiest plated waffle in Melbourne. Topped with strawberries and truffle ice cream, sprinkled with edible flowers and micro herbs, the Coffee Waffle was just yum.
Next stop, gotta try the Trio Mushrooms as I'm a HUGE fan of anything mushrooms. Served on home made celeriac puree with crispy pancetta, poached eggs, pecorino cheese and brioche soldiers
Lamb Neck was something you have to try when in Melbourne. This dish looked simple but it exceeded our expectations. Tender meat served with pickled beetroots, heirloom baby carrots and sweet potato, topped with smoked yoghurt.
Wagyu Brisket On House Brioche was a delight. I particularly am in love with the crispy chard (it's like a yummy veggie crisp). The wagyu was served on toasted brioche, with a generous serve of mustard aioli, fruit relish and salad. Just divine.
Now, this one I'm super excited with. Quinoa Salad is a very pretty (and mouth-watering) salad dish. It's got all the nutrition you need - stone fruit gel, halloumi cheese, fennel tops, radish, pickled and roasted cauliflowers.
We will be coming back to Middletown for sure. Loving their all-day breakfast and lunch, with beautiful mod interior, it is a perfect place to hang out with family and friends.
