SAYERS SISTER, 236 LAKE STREET, NORTHBRIDGE
Little sister to Sayers Food in Leederville, Sayers Sister opened late 2012. Beautiful decor – exposed brick, paint-chipped wood, quirky furniture and light fittings; and buzzing on a winter Monday morning – we got the last available table.
I decided on the Bubble & Squeak, but dependent on whether the dish had peas in it. I had déjà-vu of asking this question on my last visit in January, but I thought I’d give it another whirl. Yes, the bubble & squeak does have peas in it, but the girl behind the counter said she would go and double check for me. Good news – it usually does (as is tradition), but for some reason the chef didn’t put peas in this batch. I have a silly, almost irrational fear of peas (of the frozen variety) which I think stems from my childhood that I haven’t quite grown out of!
Thank you chef for forgetting the peas! The bubble and squeak cake was served with smoked spec, poached eggs, wilted spinach and hollandaise. A big, thick, juicy slab of spec; tasted great and looked impressive. The bubble and squeak cake was well seasoned and flavoured with wholegrain mustard. The hollandaise was rich and buttery, with a slight tang; made in-house as it should be.
Gav ordered the potato rosti, bramley apple and thyme chutney, poached eggs, bacon and rocket leaf. He enjoyed his breakfast, but the rosti itself lacked a bit in flavour and seasoning.
The last time I was at Sayers Sister which was back in January my breakfast came out looking like a work of art, and tasted as good as it looked. Pancetta wrapped asparagus spears, poached eggs, hollandaise and parmesan crisps. So beautiful, I thought I would share in this post.
The menu states that they use local produce, including locally farmed free range eggs and free range chicken. There is a great variety of original breakfast dishes, not just the run-of-the-mill dishes served at some cafes. I am glad I live in walking distance from the great brunch spot.
