[Ray's Cafe, 332 Victoria street Brunswick 3056]
You’re probably wondering who the hell this is??!!! yes, its been way to long, and I’m just about ready to burst at my seams with breakfasty goodness. My apologies for my extreme case of “cbf”…
This second part of 2011 seems to have been a slippery little sucker and time has got the better of me.
However!!!, I shall break that cycle today whilst I “break my fast”… (wow, I am in Dad joke mood!)
So!, shall we?
Let me introduce you to Ray’s cafe:
You could probably tell from my very “south of the river focus” blog entries that I reside on the south of the River – that being the Yarra River for those of you playing along across the states or oceans. And yes, I know all the culinary excitement is all very much happening in the Brunswick/Fitzroy neck of the woods, however by the time I get ready and get over to the “other side”, I’m so ravenously hungry I could’ve eaten my arm! (so to speak)
So, about 450 odd days ago (not kidding, apparently its been about that long since I wrote anything!!!), I ventured out far and beyond to the lands across the river to test how long I can travel for without breakfast. I’m not going to lie, I had a mini meal before I left incase I turned into some sort of monster on PT.
I had the French Toast w/ sweet Labna and maple syrup.
The service was lovely and friendly, well presented, and great price… however it just wasn’t amazing. In hindsight, it would have been great to have some sort of compote or fresh strawberries, even orange and cinnamon to play with on this dish.
Mr “All sorts of lovely” had Poached eggs (perfect) on toast with capsicum and dukkah playmates. This is really what I should’ve orderd – hello food envy! lol!
It was fresh, balanced and owners of two very perfect poached eggs!
As Ray’s source their produce from local middle eastern suppliers, every dish had a unique middle eastern flavour that only a cafe off Sydney road could have.
Ray’s cafe offered great value for money and is tucked away off the buzzing Sydney road in Brunswick.
It however failed to completely excite me based on my dish alone, and with that I can only conclude will have to try it again
Hope you’ve been good to your taste buds and tummies, and stay tuned for the next update of “My life as a food junkie” lol!
