37. The Breakfast Club – Single Origin Roasters @ Surry Hills

I had my first and only Good Food Month breakfast on Thursday morning – it has been really difficult to find a day I could go for The Breakfast Club since they’re only offered on weekdays. But hurrah! I made it to one. So here’s my yumcha brekkie experience at Single Origin Roasters on 24/10/2013~

Cascara – coffee-cherry fruit tea. Being a non-coffee person, this tasted like herbal medicine to me…but I finish my cup! *proud moment* It apparently hasΒ a lotΒ of caffeine…

Breakfast served in traditional Chinese steamers, pretty cool.

Layin’ it all out~

Course 1: Rice paper roll with carrots and cumin puree,Β coriander and sesame seedΒ served with a chilli soy sauce and soy reduction. The orange thing inside the roll tasted like pumpkin mash…

Course 2: Homemade bacon bun served with a house chilli sauce. I’m guessing this is Single O’s twist on the ‘cha siu bao’ (Chinese pork bun). It tasted pretty good but I had more bun than meat. This was only me though, my friend’s portion was even/more generous with the Β filling. That being said, I liked the bun more than the meat… :D

Course 3: Almond cake with creme fresh and green tea marbled white chocolate.

It looked so pretty!! I love that green piece of marbled white chocolate. I didn’t like the rest of the dessert though, unfortunately. It had a bit of sour zing mixed with a cream cheese taste.Β Definitely not a fan of creme fraiche…It was weird…but it’s still so pretty. So yeah, to me it looked better than it tasted.Β

Yummy-looking muffins

Upon recommendation from a foodie friend, I had to take one away. I chose the strawberry yoghurt :) So good. It’s soft, fluffy and it ain’t too sweet!Β They also sell savoury muffins which I find a bit weird…maybe I’ll give one a try next time, like the bacon and cheese one. mmmmmm.

Location: 64 Reservior St, Surry Hills (Sydney)

Note that the yumcha menu changes weekly throughout the month so what you see here probably won’t be what you see next week.

The breakfast was quite novelty, but I love novelty! It was interesting and even though not all the dishes were 100% suited to my palate, my eyes (and s4) could at least feed on it. So I admit that I was slightly disappointed with the taste of the food overall but it was still a good experience. The staff were nice friendly and the atmosphere was quite chillaxing. This place is supposed to be very good at it’s coffee brewing, but I can’t tell since…yeah. I don’t like/drink coffee.
