Eating Out: Las Chicas @ St Kilda, Melbourne.

I love eating breakfast in Melbourne cafes. That’s something I sorely miss after moving to Adelaide. It’s not that Adelaide doesn’t have them – Adelaide just doesn’t have the extensive variety of cafes we do in Melbourne. And they also don’t offer the same quality of food. Le sigh.

Las Chicas was one such breakfast. A breakfast eaten so long ago that I have all but forgotten it. I remember it was the first time I was meeting brownie expert Barbara from BeesKnees Brownie and we had somehow chosen Las Chicas as our rendezvous point. (And if you have not tried her brownies before, you are missing out on something very important in life.)

I won’t go into detail what the breakfast dishes were, how they taste and such. It’s been too long and I think reviewing such a meal is unfair. Instead, here are photos of that breakfast – to remind me of what I’m missing out on.

Breakfast of champions: Bagel, eggs and hollandaise sauce.

Such luxury! Simple flavours made with quality ingredients make for a breakfast to die for. I’d kill for good breakfasts like that in Adelaide – I guess the hunt continues! (Yes, I’ve been to East Terrace Continental, no, I’m not impressed. Sorry)

      Omg, woman. You keep going to the ones over on the other side of the city… there’s one that’s nearer !!!!

  2. the eggs look really, really nice!

  3. Breakfast is most definitely my favourite meal to eat out and those eggs prove why! If only it wasn’t so far out from home…

      It’s funny, I don’t think I went there because of the reviews (At that time, I didn’t hear of any), but I was browsing Urbanspoon and they popped up XD Well worth the trip, I reckon.

    The eggs looks new to me and I have never seen such one even before.. I want to give this a try too someday..

  6. I love Bagels and that looks good. Going to NYC later this year, can’t wait to try a NYC bagel!

  7. Is it just me, or does that second bagel shot look like a face? And I had a really nice breakfast at Queen Street Cafe in Croydon (Adelaide, not Melbourne).

      XD I never noticed the face! Queen St Cafe (Croydon) is definitely on my radar. I’m slowly tackling the breakfast places in Adelaide. I’m sure I’ll find something soon. =)
