Check into this restorative space and treat yourself to food that’s good for you
Plentyfull isn’t your run-of-the-mill brunch spot.
Sitting underneath hanging, macrame laced flower pots, I soon discovered the restorative powers of a beautiful dining locale.
Metres away at a sun-drenched side counter, a baby shower was ongoing. Laughter rippled from the group, as I took in the convivial ambience.
The newly-opened restaurant serves hearty food in a market table luncheon spread by day and transforms into a modern brasserie at night.
Other than offering home-style food that’s good for the soul, there’s also a gourmet grocer in the same space.
We had ourselves a lovely brunch on Saturday and here are five items we loved:
1. Indonesia Chicken Porridge ($10)
Taking influence from owner Claudia’s heritage, the Indonesian Chicken Porridge is a modern take on her childhood favourite.
The silky-smooth congee is topped with sous vide egg, fried shallots, spring onions and sesame. Dig your spoon a little dipper and you’ll find tender chicken roulades. Yum!
2. Fancy Grilled Ham & Cheese Sandwich ($16)
To be honest, I was a little disappointed when the Fancy Grilled Ham & Cheese Sandwich didn’t produce the gooey cheese pull I was expecting it to.
That said, the flavours were delightful. Nicely grilled house-made brioche buns sandwiched the likes of cured ham, smoked cheddar and sriracha mayo. We recommend topping up $3 for their house-smoked bacon.
