07 Nov Oppen, Windsor
You don’t see much Scandi food in Melbourne, let alone a cafe that’s committed to it. Oppen is a refreshing addition to the brunch scene that has Danish-style open sandwiches (smorrebrod) alongside their other brunch dishes.
Their range of smorrebrod covers quite a variety of proteins, and the Grilled Pork Liver Terrine is one of the heartier ones with a crisp 63C egg and bacon amongst the ingredients. The Cauliflower Steak is a standout too – a flavoursome combination of wholesome ingredients including charred broccoli, quinoa, chickpeas and sunflower cream. Charred and crunchy ingredients are totally up my alley.
Oppen’s Smorgasbord Sundays sees the appearance of grazing boards that might include cured meats, preserved vegetables, bread and cocktails. Booking in advance will give you a little discount as well as guarantee of a table. Windsor Station is a stone’s throw away, making the trip home after a boozy brunch a little easier.
