After hearing about Three Blue Ducks on The Sydney Morning Herald a while back and feeling somewhat adventurous, mister T and I trekked to Bronte for some lazy Saturday breakfast…
Pork belly with chilli jam, enoki mushrooms and asian greens ($30.oo)
This dish was confusingly great! The pork belly had a very fine crispy layer of skin and mixed with the asian flavours and vegetables it seemed highly fine-dining for lunch time! Having said that, I don’t know if I would pay $30.oo again for this dish at lunch time…
Steak sandwich with red pepper mayo, tomato, onion marmalade & rocket ($18.oo)
Now THIS is what I call a real steak sandwich! I usually shy away from steak burgers as I find the steak quite messy to eat but in this case, the steak was real juicy and tender – easy to eat. You can tell some real thought was put into this burger because the rocket was thoroughly tossed with vinaigrette before being put on the burger so the flavours were nice and even. Nothing worse than having bits of salad which either have no taste or too much taste that it knocks your senses out.
Ginger ninja + Berry Smoothie ($7.oo each)
The Food Zoo experience: I was severely disappointed by the timing that breakfast/lunch was served. I quote the Three Blue Ducks website on the day of dining: “Breakfast finishes at 12 noon on the weekend and at 11.30 am during the week.” COMPLETELY UNTRUE. We got there 11:35PM and was told that breakfast was finished and lunch orders would be taken after a 25 minute wait. You can’t make bookings either so who would’ve thought of calling up to double check the time on the website? Being mentally prepared to dine at Three Blue Ducks I had no choice (in my mind), but to wait for lunch time.
That being said, the food was really good though some dishes I felt were a bit more expensive than what I would normally go for. I will definitely be going back to try the breakfast menu though!
