It’s no secret that I love breakfast. I would (and do at times) eat breakfast foods at any time of the day very happily.
Breakfast for me is a spectacular affair that sets the scene for a magnificent day.
So it’s safe to say that I take my breakfasts seriously.
Over the past few years, Brisbane’s breakfast scene has grown to provide an impressive selection of morning feasts all across the city. As a result, breakfast catch ups with friends has been my preferred time to meet.
However, every so often I come across a breakfast so wonderful in its complete experience, that I have to share it. This morning, was one such breakfast at the newly opened Billy Kart Kitchen in West End. The original kitchen in Annerly has gained a popular following since opening, so I was very keen to see if its sister restaurant does its reputation justice.
The menu features the most delectable array of sophisticated dishes sourced from local produce. Both dishes that we had were slightly unexpected, yet expectedly fantastic. Elegant, restraint on a plate showcasing exceptional flavour combinations. The taste, texture and presentation are so well thought-out, highlighting true respect for the produce. The only issue that I had was actually decided what to have from the menu. Admittedly, I don’t think I could have chosen incorrectly. I ended up decided on the house-made sprouted seed loaf with tahini avocado, a delectable traditional greek dip made from almonds and a green tomato salsa. My friend had the corn fritters with avocado and heirloom tomatoes (photos on my Instagram page). Absolute culinary perfection.
Add the amazing food to the friendly, knowledgable staff who really could not do enough to help and a perpetually full water glass, and you had two very happy foodies and a day extremely well started.
West End may have an overwhelming array of restaurants to choose from at times. But I think I may have just found my favourite. I’ll be back for breakfast, and brunch… and they might have even convinced me to eat dinner food.
