Coffee: Espresso Syndicate

It had been a while since we’d seen our friends for brunch, and had decided upon trying out Pillar of Salt in Richmond. With traffic holding the two of us up from getting to the venue, a message was received from the Doctor telling us that the wait for the venue was equivalent to 40 people! She and the others wandered down to Pearl Cafe, which then informed them the wait would be a couple of hours for a group of our size. Ridiculous! We had then suggested NorthSouth Eatery – a place we had visited not so long ago. Since the business had changed hands we thought – why not?

The first change, other than the menus being more presentable, were the little biscuits which now accompanied our coffees.

R & M had ordered the 60 Degree Eggs with salmon pastrami, dill and salmon roe [$16]. If these eggs look a little different to the norm, it’s because they are cooked at 60 degrees and deliver a perfectly gooey egg.

Miss SL had ordered Zucchini, leek and tallegio omelette [$14] with some additional bacon [$4] and toast [$2.50] to go with the dish.

We had asked the Doctor what tallegio was, and she told us it was like a fancy version of tasty cheese. She was right – the tallegio was very salty and was pretty much the only flavour in this pizza-sized omelette.

Bacon and sourdough

Mr LB had ordered the Free Range x 3 scrambled eggs with bacon on toast [$13] with extra tomato [$4]. There was nothing noticeable about this dish which was largely simple. Again, salt seemed to be the running theme throughout this dish.

Overall, NorthSouth Eatery for its breakfast menu was not that great since being taken over. While the menu was largely the same, the food was too salty for our palates. Perhaps its better to stick with the lunch menu if visiting.

Disclaimer: It’s been noted that NorthSouth Eatery has actually changed its name officially since our revisit, so keep an eye out for new signage if visiting!

Final thought: “The salt mafia”
