Fitzroy, VIC 3065
Today is Labour Day which means public holiday meaning NOT WORKING !!! I, Maya and Suri decided to celebrate the day with brunch at Hammer & Tong. We were waiting in the tram stop for number 86 to come while looking over photos on urbanspoon and deciding what to order. We were so excited to try this place which has been a hype for quite some time that we kept on flicking the photos until Suri saw the home screen and said "they are closed on monday". After searching for sometime, I came up with Proud Mary and there we go. This time we did check the opening times and they do open on Monday so nothing to worry. We arrived and found a closed sign on the door, no luck at all. Then we decided to go to De Clieu, the place we passed by and definitely open. It was 12.30pm when we arrived, there were 6 or more people waiting to be seated so I thought I'm gonna be starving for another hour. Luckily when we asked the staff who is BTW really cute, there was a table for three in the corner.
I started with Skinny Mocha which was beautifully presented. But when I touched the glass it was too hot, I had to leave it for a couple minutes before I could drink it which is a bit disappointing.
|Mocha - $4|
The pork neck came with spring onion roti which was really good, thin and crispy like canai. The meat was tender and I must say they are really generous with the portion. The tonkatsu sauce was also good but it was a bit too much, less sauce would be better for me.
|Berkshire Pork Neck - $17|
|Miso and Broadbean Fritters (vg) - $16,5|
|Wagyu beef burger - $15|
|Me, Maya, Suri <3|
Would I come back ? Definitely yes, to try their eggs benedict and cured salmon.
