Brunch Sunday : Replete Providore

We arrived at 930am and the place was filled! We had to wait for about 10 mins for window seats, definitely had to wait a tad bit longer for a table. It’s a really cosy place and the staff were friendly. I didn’t know there was a communion table behind with sofa seats and really a really pretty light!

I first read about Replete Providore from Iron Chef Shellie and what caught my eye in her review post was their chai soy latte. If you know me, I LOVE chai! It’s absolutely vital for me to have a cup of chai soy latte in the morning, to start my day off well! So when I saw how they served their chai in a teapot, I had to go give it a try!

It was A-W-E-S-O-M-E! Love that they put more cinnamon powder on top to add a spice-kick to the hot and comforting drink. I don’t know if it’s just me. There’s just something therapeutic dipping the honey dipper into a big glass container of honey and slowly allowing it to drip into my cup of chai.

fuzzy wuzzy honey bee (:

The Mr, on the other hand, is a coffee lover. When asked how his coffee was, he said GOOD! haha So I reckon it’s something not to be missed too if you’re there for brunch and you need your morning cuppa!

 Sundays are brunch days for the mr and I. We always head to somewhere nice after mass in the morning. It’s just something we decided to do a while back. It’s definitely a day I look forward to and treasure very much. Especially since we are working everyday and get so drained by the end of the week and all we want to do is relax, enjoy each other’s company and have super yummy food! (:

On with the food. The best part! haha I’m having this current obsession with corn so the minute I saw corn fritters on the menu, my mind was made up! Layered with bacon and topped with sour cream and avocado salsa, I was sure it would be a winner (:

And yes, the portion size here is HUGE! Two really big fritters with heaps of bacon and a more than decent amount of sour cream and salsa. Everything came together and complimented each other. The flavours were just dancing in my mouth! I was a super happy girl.

With portions this big, I usually can only have half of it, and the mr would need to finish it up for me. But that day, I couldn’t stop eating it. Of course, I still couldn’t finish it, but I did better than just 1/2! An achievement in my eyes. hehe

Now, this is the breakfast for champions. Eating champions. haha How big is the Replete Breakfast? Toast, bacon, poached eggs, spanish sausage, tomato, field mushrooms and the most amazing hash brown! The hash was super crispy on the outside and soft and fluffy on the inside. It is one thing the mr always looks out for when he’s out for brunch. A good hash. And he definitely found it here!

Of course, you can imagine how full we were by the end of the meal, but we were two very happy campers! With very round tummies! hehe Definitely a place I recommend. If you want to avoid the crowds, come during the weekdays. But brunch just isn’t brunch without the crowds and people flipping the papers and tables of friends laughing and having a good time with good food, is it?

Have a fantastic brunch day people! (:

    I’m too like Lester, a coffee drinker- but chai in that gorgeous tea pot & honey looks super cute! Corn fritters make my heart fritters when I see it on the menu- I am super analyst on the fritters- need to be cornny (LOL) rather then mushy corn & starchy from the flour. Best so far is Tom Phat @ Syd Rd, Brunswick!

      If you like the cornny kind of corn fritters, you HAVE TO try the ones here! You can still see every single corn kernels! You’ll love it! I’ve tried Tom Phat but not the corn fritters. Will have to make a trip back there soon!

      ps : the chai was AMAZING. GO TRY!

    Oh Lianne, thanks for your sweet comments on my recent post and It was a fantastic day out. Food and wine, every weekend should be like that 😉 Although I am liking your Sunday brunch idea, how good looking are those poached eggs? And the hash brown looks amazing, golden brown and crunchy!

    • liannelow says:

      I totally agree! Food & Wine, best combination and even better on a weekend with close ones! (:

      The poach eggs look too good to be eaten don’t they? hehe and the hash. oh the hash. You would just fall in love! (: Thanks for letting me know what you thought! LOVE reading comments!

      Awww (: It’s nice to know there are alot of people who love the same thing! I’ve got a current obsession with corn. hehe But it’s good Mr NQN doesn’t care for it, so you can have all the corn in the world to yourself! hehe
