Looking for a place to eat brunch, we decided on going to Piaf in South Bank. This place was on my dinner list, but since it was close by, this was the only one that really caught my eye in the area. When looking around for a place to eat, this area is also where I noticed how expensive everything is. In the area I found a sushi restaurant charging $5.50 for a regular kappa roll. That’s just cucumber!
We decided on breakfast because we didn’t want to wait 30 minutes for lunch, and it was a bit cheaper. I ordered Polenta Cakes with Wild Mushrooms, Asparagus with Taragon Creme Fraiche. I loved my breakfast. The polenta was lightly fried so it had a little crunch, and it was nice and soft in the middle. The mixed wild mushrooms were hearty, and the creme fraiche livened up the dish. Each bite was delicious together.
My friend ordered the Poached Eggs with Smoked Eggplant. She was a bit unsure if she wanted because it came with Haloumi which she isn’t very fond of. It was better here though. It’s a fried cheese, but it’s a bit bland like tofu, though very crispy on the outside. The poached eggs and eggplant were cooked perfectly.
I would definitely come back to Piaf. The food is pretty and delicious, and their dinner and lunch menus sound just as good. I want to try their lamb brains.
