Having an interesting Sunday brunch is a surefire method to killing off the oncoming Monday blues. But when you are ordering stacks of deep fried guilt at 10am for brunch, it is likely that even the Sunday is going to be a long day. I hit Floyd’s, a gourmet family-run cafe in Subiaco for brunch a couple weeks back and the menu is pretty damn intense.
That morning I ordered the Panko Crumbed Eggs served with charred asparagus, fried potato hash and crispy bacon (as the prosciutto was not available)
The dish itself was technical marvel considering how there are still cafes in town that struggling to even poach eggs right. Floyd’s move to deep-fry poached eggs was a dangerous one. But when executed right and the yolk flows, it was a sight to behold. I was impressed by that aspect but the combination of fried bacon, hollandaise and crumbed eggs felt too heavy. Very heavy. Almost like a 3 piece KFC dinner box in the morning ha ha. But hey, I knew it before I ordered it. Guess I got a bit ambitious there!
My dining companion on the other hand decided to go for something a little healthier and settled for the Seared Avocado and Bacon stack.
Think smashed avocado but something more worth the buck and less worthy of an insult. The bacon at Floyd’s is crispy by default but her preference was for a softer more meaty bacon. Other than that, she thought her choice for brunch was fine.
Over all the morning at Floyd’s was decent. Not great but decent. Food wise, they have a few daredevils on there but other than that the creativity on the plate did not really excite me as much as I thought it would. After brunch that day I felt really heavy from my fried foods overkill! Definitely something to be vary off the next time I pick my brunch dish!
