Another weekend, another brunch. Amongst the many things W.A has to offer, its pristine beaches easily comes close to topping the list. So why not do brunch by the beach right? That’s exactly what Shorehouse had in mind. This popular restaurant takes in the sweeping views of the Scarborough coastline with both indoor and outdoor sitting benefitting from the million dollar view. Its brunch menu was nice and tasteful with accents of seafood written between the lines. After enjoying a hot Chocolate, I ordered an omelette to get my daily protein. This was not just any Omelette though! This was Shorehouse’s Crab Omelette.
But can they top the famous Chilli Crab Omelette by Frisch and Barc? For starters the omelette at Shorehouse sticks true to the creamy butter finish of a traditional Omelette. Silky smooth with a strong hit of butter, this was joy. Topping the protein was some crab meat cooked in miso butter. Umami bomb at its finest with the nutty and slightly sweet Miso flavour serenading the dish. Moving to the inside of the Shorehouse Omelette, there was a slow cooked leek. Unfortunately, this was where the joys of the buttery egg and tender crab flesh ended. The leek was still fibrous and undercooked. To a certain extent it was hilarious seeing how everyone was busy picking the fibres from their mouth haha. There was a mound of dental floss on some plates :P Then again we only had two choices. One was to take it out, or two we could have swallow it whole lol.
Shorehouse is a promising venue with my sister previously giving them credit for their amazing desserts. An omelette for $23.50 is pretty pricey even when comparing it to Frisch and Barc who had more crab meat in its omelette. But look beyond the food, factor in the sweeping shoreline and price soon becomes irrelevant. The combination of food and views make for a winning meal. Would I come back? It will be a definite yes but I would not be in a hurry.
