As Sprolo only starts serving breakfast after 8am, I decided to start with a sausage roll.

Sister’s cappuccino @ $4.50. The gloss on the froth looked superb!
What was served to us really deviated from the classic butter and syrup. Instead these little beauties came with a berry and pear compote, yoghurt and peanut crumbs which was a nice touch. Crumpets were nice although I have to say they were rather thin to finish the accompanying condiments! I enjoyed the various textures from all the sides and the flavors were good. Special mention to the creamy yoghurt and sweet peanut crumb complemented by the slight tartness of the berry compote!
Darling had the smoked salmon with guacamole, potato cakes and hollandaise for $19.50. It was super massive and darling enjoyed her breakfast! I had a try and it was pretty damn nice. Eggs were spot on, hollandaise perfect and most importantly, the smoked salmon had just the right amount of salt! The little darling thought that the guacamole felt rather redundant but my sister and I happily had it :)!
Fishman decided to skip the cliché brunch meals of eggs and called the sirloin steak burger instead. Inside he says was filled with thinly sliced beef which were really tender. However, mid way though he felt that it started become a little too sickening for breakfast food. The flavors though really good were still unable to beat the gigantic burger. I guess the gherkins did not offer much consolation either. Over all, I would still say it turned out pretty yums! He reckons perhaps some grilled tomatoes to cut through the meat would work wonders!
My pulled pork with poached eggs, hollandaise and onion relish cost me $19 I think +/- $0.50 haha. It worked a treat and I really loved the pork. In terms of flavor, I recently had another at Harvest Espresso @ Victoria Park which I am really partial to, but in this instance, I’d have to say that Gusto came tops. It was just flavored really nicely. With runny yolk, some tangy relish with subtle tang from the hollandaise bringing everything together. I enjoyed this :)! Bread used was normal and I could not comment much. Spinach on the other hand was nice + healthy haha. How else do I describe them? Sis on the other hand called something similar but came without eggs and hollandaise. It had a side of chips! It was nice and she enjoyed the crusty bread but for me haha, I really thought mine is better xD!
Yv was shocked to see its towering appearance but braved her first bite. She had a moment of silence which concerned me a little. But fortunately she thought that it was OK. Her only concern was the intense sweetness from the compote. She liked how the saltiness from the bacon gave it that extra edge but still, the sweetness from the compote was a little deafening. In fact, I shared half of this with her and agreed that it was a little too sweet. But I really liked the whole concept of mixing sweet and salty along with some spice. Texture wise, this was really good too. A burst of juiciness from the berries, mushy bananas, crunchy honeycomb! It was great thinking IMHO. Next time if I ordered this, the compote would come in a little jar like the crumpets. That would be perfect. I guess everyone has a difference tolerance so it would be great to let us decide although original amounts decided by the chef should be best.

Deciding on Tuesday dinner was another pick from the Entertainment Book. Unfortunately, I found it very hard to give it any merits. That probably explains the discomforting feeling one gets when you go to a restaurants half past seven and it is fairly quiet. Mend Street Café should be a trademark of the beautiful South Perth. Its dishes come out looking good but tasting lousy. For dinner, I ordered the crispy skin pork belly with a salad.
Tragically, the skin was soggy and the meat dry. Worst of all was the salad that came warm as if it was sitting next to the stove. The dressing was stingy and I had to request more to relief the dryness. Over all, it was just nightmare. The only consolation on the plate was the prawns which were still juicy and nice. The rest was just horrible. Will I come here next time? Maybe with a coupon. And ordering more typical dishes which I would still worry about a mess up.
