Australia Part 2

Another great restaurant that we found in Melbourne was Bird Man Eating. A woman that we met during our wine tour told us that it was a great place for a Sunday brunch (though not of the Singapore variety).  We didn't have anything specific planned for our last day in Australia and it sounded like a great idea.

The menu was fantastic.  Brioche french toast with marmalade glazed kaiserfleisch, orange pekoe & maple syrup and Red quinoa porridge with apple, honey & cinnamon were just two of the unique and delicious sounding meals.  

Justin went with the braised beans and toast, which came in this cute little dutch oven and had a wonderfully mild chili taste to it.

I love how the plate is served with what looks to be a scrap piece of sheet music on it!

I decided to go with one of my favourite breakfast treats, the banana bread.

Now I'm sure you're all thinking, "how boring - bread and butter?"  Well guess again my friends.  This cinnamon banana bread was lightly toasted and tasted delicious.  And that is NOT butter on the side but a mascarpone with honey and lime!  I had no idea how all these flavours would mix together but the answer was amazingly!

Overall it was a great little brunch and it was great to get outside of the CBD to see a more eclectic part of the city.  After brunch we went for a little walk around the neighborhood, found this great market and enjoyed our last day before heading back to Asia.
