Fo0die dined as a guest of Mr and Mrs Anderson and as such, the rating does not give any consideration to customer service.
Located at the corner of Anderson Road and Tooronga Road, there was no guessing how the name of the venue came about. We easily found parking on Anderson Road which is normally a permit zone Monday to Friday.
On entry, the counter is straight in front with the tables arranged around the venue’s windows (thanks to the corner location). Some seating is also available on the street with umbrellas offering some protection from the weather.
We started off our meal with coffees (Mr J had to order a latte as the venue did not serve matcha lattes). The mocha was more heavy on the chocolate side than the coffee.
After seeing the fermented chilli eggs on instagram (and intrigued by the milk buns), I ordered this dish which was served with a thick cut of bacon and a generous portion of fluffy eggs. Its unusual for me to order the chilli scramble eggs dish (this was my first time!), so I don’t really have a baseline to compare this against but the eggs itself was quite sweet overall with a slight kick from the chilli and had to be eaten with the bacon to balance the dish out.
Mr J ordered the special soup (which wasn’t on the menu; we saw it on their instagram). A nice hot tomato based soup which had a lovely lamb flavour and large chunks of tender lamb. Mr J thought it was a good serving size along with the toasted bread served on the side.
The souffle was also a dish we saw online and it did not disappoint (for me it was the highlight of the three dishes!). Soft and fluffy, the wattleseed caramel went nicely with the Japanese souffle pancake and the slightly bruleed pineapple.
