Truman Cafe

So I know I’ve been a little lazy in posting but I’ve been quite busy. We got a new dog! 🙂  But apart from that, I thought I’d post up some photos of brunch at Truman Cafe which is located in Albert Park.

We arrived on a cold, miserable morning. The cafe was nice and small and since we arrived at ‘peak’ time, we had to wait about 10-15 minutes. Eventually when we were seated we had to sit outside. I ordered my usual soy mocha and my parter ordered a juice (I think it was the Brooke Sheilds juice). It was really tasty!

We then ordered our meals. I thought I’d try the Chipotle Baked Beans. Out came the dish. Two pieces of toast covered with beans, feta and spinach. The dish was lovely although was quite a bit serving! I shouldn’t complain though!

My parter ordered the Truman Brekkie (with extra bacon of course 😉 ) It was massive but he finished it though. I tried a bit of it, the hash brown was really tasty!

I’d have to say I’d like to come back again and try some other dishes and also the juices! They look delicious!

Healthy Burritos

20140601_183312

I know this picture doesn’t look like a burrito but this is our version of one! 🙂 I hope you all enjoy this. It’s a simple yet easy meal for lunch/dinner and can be changed up as you please.

Healthy Burritos (2-3 burritos per person)

250-300g of beef mince
1/4 – 1/2 a small onion (diced)
2 tomatoes (diced)
1 Jalepeno (deseeded and diced)
Small handful of coriander
Lime Juice
Salt/Pepper/Bit of either paprika and cumin or mexican seasoning
Greek Yoghurt
Tortillas (wholemeal for healthier option)

1. Brown the onion and mince in a pan
2. Once browned drain excess oil and add Salt/Pepper and seasoning of your choice. Set aside
3. Dice tomatoes, jalepenos and corriander
4. Heat up tortillas in oven/microwave.
5. Place tortilla on plate. Add a bit of beef, tomato, jalepeno, coriander, a bit of lime juice over the top of it all as well as small dollops of greek yoghurt.
6. Wrap and enjoy!

As mentioned you can pretty much use what ever vegetables you like. We’ve also mixed it up with cucumber and a bit of lettuce as well but its completely up to you!

Pricilla Jones Cafe

I stumbled upon this place when I was looking up a place to go for brunch one morning. We wanted somewhere close to us but somewhere we hadn’t been before. Pricilla Jones Cafe came up on my searches so we thought why not!

This cute little cafe felt lovely and cosy when you walk in. It was a cold day that day but the sun was shining through (straight onto my face I might add :S) but it was nice and toasty. There wasn’t too much that tickled our fancy on the  menu so I ordered the Croque Monsieur and my partner ordered the Pricilla’s poached eggs.

My Croque Monsieur arrived and to my surprise it didn’t really look like what I expected. I actually don’t really know what I was expecting but it was quite average. It was just white bread with cheese on top and a bit of ham on the inside. I expected there to be a fair bit of béchamel sauce in between but none that I actually saw of. If anything there was a tiny bit inside. Bit of a disappointment.

 My partners dish looked lovely. I only tried a little bit of it but I’d have to say the sausages were the highlight of the dish. Looked a bit strange but tasted delicious.

All in all the place is cute but brunch wise, I think there are plenty more nicer places around the area to try.

Boudin Bakery

Another one of my food photos from our travels in the US! Here we are at Boudin Bakery in San Francisco. This bakery is situated by the Wharf area. The day we went was a dreary rainy day. All we wanted to do was to find somewhere warm to sit and eat and this seemed like the perfect place!

We were seated by the window and given our menus. We decided on a Fish and Chip basket and the infamous Clam Chowder! The Fish and Chips were lovely and crunchy, just what fish and chips should be like. The Clam Chowder however, this was absolutely delicious! I had never really tried a chowder before and the thought of a Clam Chowder didn’t really interest me but I’m glad we ordered it. The Chowder was nice and thick and creamy and the way it was presented was perfect… in a bowl of bread! Divine!

All in all, I’d have to say if you go to San Francisco, the Clam Chowder is a MUST! No questions asked!
