Salt Food Wine Coffee @ Rosalie, Brisbane

The suburb Rosalie lies very close to the heart, a place that we frequent for breakfast and our dosage of sugar. Not to mention, the rather expensive butcher and gourmet mart too. It's been weeks since the floods and we heard wind that the suburb that was once flooded 1.5 metres from the ground is up and running again, so we headed there with enthusiasm.

Flute which we visited once was closed the week that we were there, although when we were around the corner last week, I am happy to say it is up and running again too.

So Salt is was, which has a similar concept to their neighbour Flute; big portion breakfasts with a slight premium, with meals starting from AUD18-22. 


Iced coffee for the hot day but this comes with ice-cream making it a very sweet caffeine dosage.


As you can see, the portions are huge and for small eaters, this should last you the whole day. Just look at the amount of mushrooms served with truffle oil, it was heavenly with some egg yolk from the poached eggs. The only problem is that the eggs are poached in a mold, rendering it slightly harder than it should be. 


If you have left over roast beef, may this be inspiration for your next breakfast. Served inside a huge omelette with cheese and served with jus, this apparently kept my friend full for the whole day whereas i enjoyed every bit of the dish.


Haloumi cheese for you maybe?


The safer options like smoked salmon and hollandaise sauce is also available. 


The mushrooms were so good that we had an extra order to share around.

There is something about the area; the peace and serenity i suppose that lures us over the area, or it could be that we can't resist a slice of cake at Welsh Lady which is a compulsory stop after breakfast.

Verdict: 4 stars out of 5 stars. You pay a bit more but you don't have to worry about having to order poached eggs as a side or any other items as a side because they make sure the plate has enough components to satisfy any appetite.

I love mushrooms with my English breakfast, so everything here looks really good to me! :)

"Joe" who is constantly craving said...

c&c: haha not my problem, surely?

babysumo: yeap there use an interesting assortment of asian and western mushrooms!

eiling lim said...

yes i would love the haloumi cheese thank you! the portion is indeed big!!!

I love how they are so unstinting with their shrooms. All the brekkie places inspired by similar recipes seem to have a problem with meeting a decent serving quantity of mushrooms. Like, come on! They can do better than 3 and a half mushrooms!

"Joe" who is constantly craving said...

minchow: i know what u mean, they slice it so thin and give a dollop, its meant to be shrooms not cream, no need for being stingy!

eiling: huge...

interesting name for a restaurant! at first i read it as 'salty food' ... but sounds like there was no sodium overload at all :D

"Joe" who is constantly craving said...

sean: haha, nope no sodium overload, i guess they should open up a sweet and sour too!

i seriously missed the big brekkie in Aussie.....they don't do the bacon right in KL....they just don't...and KL eateries are usually rather stingy with the mushrooms (its pretty expensive here...that's why)

i hate your blog ever since u leave KL for Australia.

Those pictures look ridiculously taunting, and if i can't bring myself to Melb during May for whatever reason, i might have to kill myself from craving too much
