Brunch at Paddy Hills (September 2016)

When Christine took leave on a Monday morning, the hunt was on for a cafe we could have brunch at. Here's where social media is pretty cool; we were browsing our friends' Instagram feeds and chanced upon some photos of Paddy Hills.

Parking here would be a severe problem on the weekends. I'd recommend parking at the nearby private estate (which may be to the chagrin of the home owners; park at your own risk!)

Unassuming facade, but wait until you go inside.

Tucked away in a small enclave just beyond the windy roads of South Buona Vista Road, your best bet at reaching this Aussie-inspired fusion cafe is by car--we checked the bus stop and found only one bus servicing this place.

The cafe has a hip vibe to it, but I'll let you be the judge of that:

Christine and I ordered a mixture of savoury and sweet: their famous "hei rice" which was essentially squid ink fried rice served with fried chicken, and their pancakes. As for drinks, she had a yuzu cooler and I had their piccolo.

The bubbles were sweetened too, and it was a race to pop them in our mouths before they went out by themselves!

The piccolo was light, and not as strong as I'd like it to be. But then again, I'm a coffee addict!

Strip away the edible flowers and the chocolate powder coating and you're essentially eating pancakes, ice cream and berries.

The rice is topped with mentaiko sauce and a soft-boiled egg that you have to crack yourself. Oh well, I suppose it makes you more excited since you're personally involved in the last step of food preparation.

Even though we were advised that the portions were small, Christine and I were full sharing just these two dishes. I think you'd seriously be full even with sharing. All-in-all, it was a great place to have a relaxing brunch. As it was a Monday, there was no crowd. I'm told that during the weekends, the crowd can sully the experience.
