Home is where the heart belongs they say. I have been living in Rivervale for over 4 years now and my affection for Victoria Park is never ending. From the impromptu pop ups on Leonard street to the innovative Harvest Espresso and the ever so precious dinner places like the Prophet and A Spicy Affair, this suburb has got to be one of the finest in Perth. During my short brake, I finally took the effort to bring my camera and my parents to my newest muse, Sixteen Ounces.
I have been to Sixteen Ounces several times now and their signature Brioche French Toast with Caramelised Bananas and Smoke Bacon with a generous drizzle of salted caramel is a must to share around the table.
The smell of butter is unmistakable once this beauty comes out from the kitchen. This mini tower of three Brioche was just super sexy and hits all the right notes in my mouth. Fluffy Brioche French toast, super sweet bananas and salty bacon. To finish was a fine balancing act in a close to perfect salted caramel. I was sold. For some reason though, it felt as though it was missing a notch of nuttiness in it preparation. Maybe its just my slow winter taste buds! Be warned, its a little heavy to down for one so it’s better shared as a dessert for all!
My other breakfast was the pulled beef, pan fried potatoes and corn kernels served with poached eggs.
This dish felt like a humble farm styled breakfast that packs great flavours. Pan fried tuber slices, buttered kernels and a sensational pulled beef that felt more like a classic Italian Ragu. Cutting the poached eggs, its gooey yolk brought everything together. In essence, it was a beautiful mess. I sure wished they gave more pulled beef! This dish was yummy!
My breakfast with my parents this morning had some interesting elements on the plate today. Each were equally impressive and nothing felt too “try-hard”. The elements in each dish were simple but they complement each other well. It was great meal in all honesty. Do note that the prices at Sixteen Ounces are relatively cheaper than its counter parts but its serve is not the largest too! Very similar to Hylin on Railway Parade.
