After a session at the Nike training club, we found ourselves at Addict salivating away. It was a relatively busy Saturday morning, with many people immersed in their morning chats, coffee and delectable food. We sat outside in the sunshine but
the cold wind made our food cool down quickly.
We ordered three dishes to share. Two off the main menu (Sweet & Savoury Breakfast Board, Son In Law Eggs Benedict) and one off the specials board (Morcilla Hash). The sweet and savoury board was a mix off emotions. The savoury part consisted of crispy bacon, roasted field mushroom, poached egg, sourdough and tomato relish. It was average and nothing worth raving about. On the other hand, the sweet coconut chia pudding with seasonal fruit was fantastic! One of the best chia puddings I’ve had. The chia seeds weren’t hard but translucent, soft and sweet (from the coconut). It was topped with rhubarb, macadamia, fresh strawberries, white chocolate, coconut and sorrel foam. This combination was a burst of fresh air!
The son in law eggs benedict was a mixture of smoked eggplant, tom yum hollandaise, fried onion, coriander, curry leaf and roti. This asian inspired benedict was surprisingly salivating. The ingredients enhanced each others flavours. The roti was crispy, light and buttery. I didn’t notice the smoked eggplant, maybe because the hollandaise covered most of the meal and I was too busy devouring it. The tom yum flavour in the hollandaise sauce was quite subtle. The eggs were perfectly runny and oozy. To top it off, the fried onion and coriander gave the meal freshness, crunchiness and colour.
One of the specials for the day was the morcilla hash. It was a tower of a hash brown, fried egg, salsa verde, smoked tomato, chervil and chipotle hollandaise. The presentation of this meal was eye catching. The potato hash was a little salty, umami and juicy. This savoury packed meal was one of the highlights.
Overall, this place offers innovative food that will keep you happy and drooling! I highly recommend this place🙂
