The Train Yard (Invited)

Sunday, September 10, 2017 Sharon Halim 0 Comments

The Train Yard is a charming cafe not far from Heidelberg station, perfectly reachable by public transport or there's plenty of street parking all around. They are open 7 days a week open for breakfast, lunch as well as house smoked BBQ meat.

We were warmly greeted by the wonderful staff at Train Yard and were seated a pretty, sun-filled courtyard. It was a fun blogger event with the weather in full corporation. Starving, we ordered some cocktails to start as we waited for others to arrive.

After a recent bad run with an overly sweet espresso martini, I was glad that the Espresso Martini we ordered was just the right amount of sweetness. You could distinctly taste the bitterness of the Axil espresso and I loved it. We also shared the Toblerone cocktail which was just. Divine. So. Flipping. Good. It was velvety smooth, with the rich sweetness from the Baileys.

For mains, I got the Panko Crumbed Eggs on Roti with Sriracha Hollandaise. This was my favourite brunch dish from Sir Charles so I was really excited to try Train Yard's version. Train Yard's roti was definitely easier to cut through. The panko crumbed egg was deliciously gooey on the inside with the savouriness that only panko crumbs can bring! I would've personally liked a little salt on my eggs but that wasn't too much of a problem.

I also tried the Sauteed Wild Mushrooms with Rocket, Truffle Oil and Parmesan on Brioche. You can really smell the richness of the truffle oil and the parmesan from a few metres away! First up, I loved how they didn't use sourdough because...brioche is just so much better and easier to nail in brunch combos (and cut through most of the time). The mushrooms were juicy and the added fragrance of the rocket and truffle oil just elevated the dish.

It was a fun event with other delicious food order by the other bloggers. The Train Yard is definitely recommended for Heidelberg area. Especially for their charming courtyard at the back. On summer it would be perfect.
