GAS Eatery & Supplies @ South Melbourne

South Melbourne has yet to fail me when it comes to dining. Just when we thought we had covered a fair few bunch spots and it be time to move on to another area, my friend asked me if we had been to GAS Eatery & Supplies. 

So it was, brunch to be had at GAS. The place was pretty casual and we loved the long sharing table they got in the front of the house, perfect if you want to sit by yourself or go as a group. 

We walked in 5 minutes before the kitchen was going to close for the breakfast menu (I believe they stop at 1pm). Quickly reading the available choices, I ordered the frittata while the rest of the crew decided to go with the lunch options. For lunch, there is no menu to order from, its simply ordering what you see on display; ranging from sandwiches, arancini balls, sausage rolls, salmon croquettes and salads. 


My friend recommended that we try the sausage roll and so we did. I only have bad memories of sausage rolls from the bakery or at the gas station so this was a pleasant surprise. The mince had colourful minute pieces of onions, carrots and herbs which was served alongside a refreshing salsa. Only regret was having to share this.


The Wife ordered some salmon croquettes that were alright, a generous mix of salmon and potatoes. She also ordered some other pastries which she commented was alright too but I didn't get to have a taste. 


The frittata or more like a huge omelette with god know how many eggs came with chorizo, chives and maybe some cheese too. If that wasn't enough, you had bacon and tomatoes on the side. Finally finished off with salted butter on toast and what you got was a really full stomach at the end of everything. 

Perfect after burning calories chasing a ball for 2 hours (futsal). 

We loved the place, even though the reheating of food done in the front of the house does make your clothes smell (if you sit inside). 

Did I mention they sell beer and wine too in the day?

Verdict: 3.5 stars out of 5 stars. Seeing myself coming back, at least for the sausage roll.
