Brunch has always been a favourite meal for this little family of mine. We treasure the chance we get to head out, especially on a weekday morning, to enjoy good food with the company of my two loves. It’s been a while since we tried somewhere new. As creatures of habit, we always head back to the cafes that we have tried and loved. But I chanced upon an article by Broadsheet and glad that there is a new place we could try that is on our side of town.
Hendriks Cafe is located in Mordialloc and a much needed cafe in this area! A huge space with a open kitchen concept, made the space really inviting! It’s always a plus when a cafe has high chairs as well, especially when brunching with a bub! Looking through the menu definitely got us excited as they had some breakfast favourites but with a twist!
We started with our usual cuppas – chai soy latte for me and a large latte for the Mr. I can’t wait till the little munchkin can have baby chinos! I think he would definitely enjoy it!
It sure wasn’t easy to make a choice, but my eyes kept going back to the Indo Fritters ($17) – Corn fritters with a son-in-law egg and chilli caramel! If you know me, you know I love my corn fritters. These were crispy on the outside and full of sweet corn kernels! YUM! The bonus was perfectly cooked son-in-law eggs with the molten yolk and the sweet and tangy chilli caramel which had a kick! Such a great combination and one that I wouldn’t even have thought about!
Would absolutely head back to have these again!
Now. When I saw Whisky Hotcakes ($17) on the menu and read the description, I knew it would be one the mr would love. He’s really into the sweet and savoury combination in a dish these days. Frankly, who wouldn’t be right? Thick, fluffy hotcakes, with bacon and a pecan praline, topped with a whisky infused maple syrup. OH MYYYYY! It tasted as good as it looked!
And for the little guy, he scored himself a side of crushed avocado ($3.50) ! His favourite breakfast food. He actually gets really excited when he sees it and is fed to him! Definitely a baby foodie in the making! hehe
You know it’s good when the little guy wants some of what we are having! I love it when his tiny chub hands reach for our plates and try his best to have a go at our food. Can’t wait till he can eat what we are having! He would definitely be one happy boy, like we were when we left the cafe! Definitely returning to try the other dishes on the menu, and I highly recommend you do too (:
Hope you had a good weekend and soldier on for the new week ahead! Remember to always cook and bake with love. Till the next post, xx !
