Cafe Sapore @ Chadstone Shopping Centre
One weekend, I was being an incredible spoiled-brat (it happens quite frequently now... I throw a mean-ass tantrum if I don't get what I want... and what I want usually involves bacon and eggs)
The Boy suggested that we walk around Chaddy to find a new brunch spot (this was not helping my temperament at all)... I really wanted my bacon and eggs...
Tender Trap was not an option (because the point of the walk-about was to find a new place to eat)...
And then I suggested, Cafe Sapore, "Look!", I said. "They do brekkies!"...
However, as luck would have it, it ran out on me. The breakfast menu was only until 11.30am and we literally just missed it by 1 minute... (this was due to no one attending us whilst we waited patiently to be seated).... I was ready to blow-up (funny story... Miranda Kerr is pregnant, right? So... she should name her new-soon-to-be-born baby "Kah"... so it's Kah-BLOOM!!!! GEDDIT?! --> courtesy of Ms.Tinymouse)
Anyway, I digress... the Boy picked my now lunch item... which happened to be a delicious mix grill - open souvlaki $18
Grilled lamb fillet and chicken breast served with pita bread, tzaziki and a greek salad, this was absolutely divine... the meat was tender and the whole open souvlaki concept was just fun!!
The Boy ordered from the Specials board (or pillar)... Blue Eye (Fish) with roast potatoes and beans (no pricing)...
This was really delicious as well, the potatoes were roasted to a "melt-in-the-mouth" feel...
A definite gold found... my mood improved dramatically with each mouthful and the poor Boy heaved a huge sigh of relief!
Note: They also do some vegetarian and gluten free items!
