Canteen

The other week I caught up with a few of the girls for brekkie at Balmain. Originally we had planned to go to Kazbah after hearing about their unique North African, Moroccan & Middle Eastern-inspired breakfast menu. However The place was booked out for breakfast until lunch time! (Kazbah - we will be back!).
With hungry tummies to feed we walked a few shops down to Canteen. Dee heard that this place was recently taken over by someone famous? We found a nice spot outside and proceeded to try pick something from the gigantic menu. When I say gigantic I mean in variety and size, the menu takes up one side of the wall from the floor to the roof.
Big Breakfast - with scrambled eggs, mushrooms, chorizo sausage, bacon, sourdough bread and tomatos


'Canteen' Eggs - served with spinach, tomato, mushooms on sourdough
Corn Cakes - served with smoke salmon, rocket and a herb mayo
I thought this place was great, the food came out quickly and prices were reasonable. Most importantly I thought the quality of the food was excellent and on this occasion cooked really well. The tomatos were tasty (possibly organic?) and the sausage from the big breakfast was not your usual butcher variety. I also liked how my corn cakes were finished off with the herb mayo (adding that little gourmet touch).
