Clayton & Me (Invited)

Clayton and Me was a warm, bright relief against the grey weather outside. Packed with smiling customers, we're surprised to find out that they've only been open for 5 weeks! The owners were super friendly and generous and gave us a range of things to try!

First up, we tried the Wagyu Burger that came with a side of potato and bacon balls. The beef patty was cooked at a perfect medium, and the cheese to keptchup ratio was good. My favourites though, were the potato and bacon balls. Yummmm. Super crunchy on the outside with a very smokey bacon-y taste. Very addictive indeed.

And then we tried the Panko Crumbed Eggs with their house smoked pulled pork and hollandaise on a bed of sourdough. I would've liked a little more salt and seasoning in the panko batter but the eggs are perfectly cooked. I personally would've liked a softer bread like brioche but the sourdough is pretty good too with the hollandaise.

They also served us the Chargrilled Polenta with Confit Field Mushrooms, Kale Chips, Beetroot Hummus and a Poached Egg. Definitely haven't seen that combination before! Kale chips were perfectly seasoned and crisp - just as good as good ol' potato chips and way healthier of course! The mushrooms were succulent and the combination with the smooth hummus was great. The polenta chips were seasoned well but it I just wasn't a big fan of its thickness.

Raw Chocolate Ganache Cake. I've had a bad experience with making and tasting raw cakes. I'm happy to say that this chocolate cake is surprisingly really good! They really nail the ganache flavours and I'm really impressed. GMO free, vegan and dairy free, this truly is a feel good treat. The ganache reminds me of my favourite chocolate mousse over at Brunetti! Who knew raw cakes can be this good?

Ricotta Hotcakes with burnt marshmallow chocolate sauce, maple syrup and strawberry fairy floss.
I really enjoyed how the ricotta pancakes at Clayton and Me are not sweet because it balances the sweetness of the sauce. The melted chocolate marshmallow sauce is simply gooey and delicious. Yum!

Overall we were really grateful by the owner's generosity! We were not in short of caffeine by the time we left as they gave us beautiful tasting coffees. Will 100% be a regular if they were closer to home!
