How have you been doing?
It’s the time of the week for my food review. I am so sorry about the delay in posts, but since we now have two weeks of school break, we will keep up to date. Promise!
So the week before was my 18th birthday, I decided to treat myself a lovely brunch at Top Paddock. I had heard so many amazing things about this place, and all the pictures from instagram were irresistible.
It was really easy to get there and when we arrived there were hardly any seats left (it was a Friday morning). I have to say the place was decorated beautifully, modern and classic at the same time. The staff were also extremely friendly and helpful!
After looking through the menu, we decided to have a hot cake, a ginger and chocolate cake and a portion of homemade bacon and eggs. The wait was around 15 minutes for all three dishes to come. I was absolutely pleased by the sophisticated decoration of the hotcake, however, I was a bit terrified by the size of it.
It was bigger and thicker than I thought, but the taste was undeniably amazing, and the cake was moist and even tastier than I expected. The berries and figs balanced the sweetness and the ricotta was perfectly light.
Even though we had to share it between three people since it was so big, we all agreed that it was one of the yummiest cakes that we’ve ever tried. The ginger and chocolate cake was okay for me, and I found it a bit dry.
The last dish was bacon and eggs, pear jam on bread. The homemade bacon was amazingly delicious. It was definitely the best bacon I have ever had and again, the balance between the sourness and the saltiness was nailed successfully.
Overall I was so happy and satisfied with my yummy birthday brunch. I’m definitely going to come back and try other dishes soon! For me, Top Paddock is a must-try place for all the Melbournians.
