I’m not the most patient driver for inner city adventures but its actually pretty quiet on a Sunday morning. Barlog Espresso has 2hour parking out front and there was a free spot when I arrived, no complaints from me!
When we went inside, we were greeted with a warm smile and directed to any table of choice. I believe the menu has had a revamp and there are a few new things to choose from.
The interior is nice, a fair amount of space between tables indoor and outdoor to choose from. We opted for a quiet table in the corner and ordered coffees to begin.
We browsed the menu and tried to narrow down our options. I fancied the Barlog Benny with pulled pork ($19) and my date went for the Corn and zucchini fritters with well done eggs ($19.50) as she is pregnant.
The fritters went down a treat, as mentioned, the eggs were ordered well poached and came as requested. The fritters were packed with flavour and the fresh greens on top were a nice touch. You might not see the beautiful haloumi that sat at the bottom of this dish, making it a great portion and very filling.
My benny was as tasty as it looks. The eggs were perfectly poached and the rostis were flavoursome with a nice crunch. I’m not sure if I’ve ever tasted a bad hollandaise, this one was delicious and had a subtle kick. Pulled pork, what more can I say, also delicious!
We shared the Lemon Curd Pancakes, thankfully! After eating a dish each, sharing this one was the best option and a nice way to finish our morning. The pancakes were ridiculously light and fluffy and once I tried them with the lemon curd, there was no stopping me finishing my half of the dish. I don’t often have sweet dishes for brekkie so the lemon curd added balance to the other sweet items. We poured the mascarpone and strawberry cream over the pancakes and the meringue pieces were nicely coated too. I like that the cream came on the side so you can decide how much you want to add to the dish.
