Prince of Wales: House smoked salmon fillet with potato pancake, spinach, poached egg and sourdough bread ($16.50)
Luckily, my choice - the Prince of Wales - was also thoroughly enjoyable and worthy of some dissecting as I imbibed its flavours. I enjoyed the potato pancakes with the mushy centres and I couldn't fault the salmon but it was very restrained. Such a reasonable serving and a very refined way to eat but I was secretly wishing for another slice of bread. Oh, and one of my friend's eggs! Sharing is caring.
The Duchess of Spotswood is certainly worth a second visit. I'll return when I'm looking for another proper, civilised breakfast with flare. I'll have to look elsewhere for the hearty, post-workout dishes. Ooh, hang on, perhaps I should have ordered the 'breakfast of champignons'?! Sounds like a winner.
