07 Jul The Grain Store, Melbourne CBD
Filled with simple, clean and homely decor, The Grain Store is serviced by quite a large and busy kitchen. At the time of my visit, there weren’t many sandwiches and sweets available near the counter yet, but as I was waiting for my food to arrive I watched as freshly baked goods made their way to the front.
My breakfast of choice was the smoked salmon omelette & truffle crème fraiche, sweet winter fennel, chipotle romesco salsa, rye crostini and crispy quinoa. The omelette arrived on the table quite quickly and was bigger than anticipated. Enveloped within the egg were chunks of tender fennel and moist salmon. The heady flavour of truffle, tangy salsa and herbs all went surprisingly well together when eaten at once. The satisfying flavours were made even better by the added texture from the crostini and quinoa.
