I have been meaning to write this post for awhile however with life happening I have not got around to it. Awhile back I ventured to Gusto Food in South Perth for breakfast with the has-a-sweetie-tooth friend. We had began a lovely Sunday with a Bikram yoga class so were ready for a decent breaky. I have been to Gusto Food numerous times prior and was well aware of the very generous portions so I made sure I bought my appetite. The breaky menu is extensive and food envy occurs every time you see a dish siddle past you. Our seats were located right next to the kitchen (which you can peep into through the window)- lucky service is quick and efficient here and not long after we placed our orders, our food arrived. The has-a-sweetie-tooth friend lived up to her name and ordered the house made crumpets with pear and berry, peanut gravel and yoghurt. This dish is a huge portion with three very thick crumpets- no complains from sweetie-tooth, she appeared to thoroughly enjoy each mouthful. I tasted a little bit of the peanut gravel and on its own it is very rich however sweetie-tooth said combined with the yoghurt, pear and berries and crumpet it worked perfectly.
I being the creature of habit ordered the scrambled eggs with mushrooms. Now, I have quite the appetite and this dish almost (but does not succeed) knocks me up. Perfectly scrambled eggs and the mushrooms are amazing (although swarming in a fair amount of butter – oh dear). I took the mushrooms out of the little side dish after I took the photo. I am one of those people who love a little forkful of everything from their plate and having them in the side dish hampered this process. Removing them allowed me to remove some of the butter too.
Gusto is a lovely breakfast place on Angelo St which prior to its establishment lacked a great breaky place for me. As a side note I have been branching out of late in regards to my breakfast choices….with Bircher muesli (let the next routine breakfast choice begin) yum!
