Aunt Billies (Invited)

Aunt Billie is a cosy, toasty refuge against the winter chill! Located near a primary school, I bet it's a popular place for both parents and kids to get a sweet treat. The cafe was bustling during the weekend, and we got to try several items from their new, modern menu. And spent a long time deciding which item to get because they all sound so interesting and tasty!

Amidst intense deliberation, we finally decided on ordering the much-raved Kabsee Chicken served with a beetroot, carrot and barley salad. A few people commented on how amazing it smelled! The chicken reminded me of the Indonesian dish, Ayam Kuning, a mild curry chicken. The flavours worked really well, and the balance of textures in the salad really elevated the dish. It also made me feel good. I mean, eating a salad for Saturday brunch? Good work, self.

The best savoury dish I've tried though, was the Potato and Cauliflower Pancake. Wow. I absolutely loved the fritter-pancake texture of it. It also came with bacon, avo salsa, chipotle relish, creme fraiche topped with poached eggs. The chipotle relish was a particularly amazing addition to the pancake with its intense smokiness. Yum! And there are some other awesome dishes too.

For desserts, we tried the Espresso Pannacotta with hazelnut, cacao granola, caramelised white chocolate and vanilla meringue. I really enjoyed how the pannacotta tasted exactly like an espresso martini. It wasn't too sweet, and the bitterness of the coffee was just right. I also liked the bits of caramelised white chocolate surrounding the panacotta.

Next up was the Dulce de Leche Hotcakes with deep fried bananas and hazelnut praline. As we were quite full by this point, we shared the dish alongside people from our table. It was certainly the favourite dessert from our section! The deep fried bananas were oh-so-good and I've never really had it as a brunch dessert!
