Hellenika | Breakfast | Brisbane
I fast most days until 11ish now, however, I’d been hanging to head to Hellenika and try their breakfast since they first launched it! Fasting went straight out the window.
The James Street venue has long been the go-to in Brisbane for delicious and fresh Greek dining in a gorgeous location. With the launch of their breakfast/brunch menu that can be enjoyed poolside, they certainly have another point of difference.
I kicked off the morning with a freshly squeezed orange juice. It just felt right. That’s what I would do on holiday, and I certainly felt on holiday being poolside and watching glorious creatures take their morning dips. I mean that quite literally. I was chatting with my friend and realised I had completely blanked due to a gorgeous man coming out of the pool and distracting me – ha! Sorry Cat!
Then the food. The deliberation. Honestly – so many delicious dishes to choose from. The stand-out for me, and the first choice (despite being plenty of others I’d love to try), was always going to be their eggs with eggs with eggs dish. I had seen it on other diner’s Instagrams and it was on my hit list.
First of all it’s gorgeous. Scroll on down and check it out – seriously, one of the most simplistic and beautifully plated dishes where the product is a standout, that I have seen in a long time.
Secondly, it was delicious. There are boiled eggs, taramasalata (fish roe-based dip), and bottarga (salmon roe) on toast. It beautifully blends together, harmonising in your mouth.
Do yourself a favour and head on over to Hellenika for breakfast, and try the eggs with eggs with eggs. Or, try something else and tell me if it’s worthwhile or if I should just stick to what I know?!
