Living in Melbourne we’ve been spoilt with brunch choices and Camberwell is no exception. Enter Neighbour is not only a warm and cosy venue but it does get super busy. Walking in we were greeted by friendly staff, sat our butts down and waited for the food to come out.
To warm ourselves up I got a chai latte and Mr D got a regular latte. The chai needed to be a touch more hotter and more chai-ness to it. Mr D was a bit disappointed with the latte and found it wasn’t as strong in both flavour and well, Mr D’s caffeine hit.
Prana Chai Latte – $5 Latte (regular) – $3.80
I got fresh apple juice and boy oh boy it was super fresh and delish! Mr D got the Mork 85% cacao drinking chocolate and he absolutely adored it. It was way too bitter for me but it was perfect for Mr D.
Fresh Apple Juice – $5 Mork 85% cacao chocolate – $5
Mushroom lovers out there who also love a truffles, the king truffle will be right up your alley. A mixture of mushrooms with white truffle and porcini cream, it was very intense and well, mushroomy. The poached egg was cooked perfectly and oozed out amazing yolky goodness. It needed something to cut through all the mushrooms and I heard the menu is going to be tweaked to include that I can’t wait to see what they’ll add in.
King Truffle – $21
Swiss brown, baby king oyster mushrooms, spinach cooked in white truffle and porcini cream, ewes milk cheese with a poached egg on toast
Mr D got the Nanban chicken on black rice. This was tote AMAZEBALLS. The flavours were bloody fantastic. Spicy, salty, a touch fish saucy and a touch delish! The chicken was juicy and oh so good. This is a definite recommended dish and has been Mr D approved.
Nanban Chicken – $18.50
Forbidden black rice, Gribiche dressing, peas, pickled cabbage, Japanese chicken topped with crispy shallots, fresh chilli, coriander
Enter Neighbour isn’t in a spot with heaps of foot traffic but when a cafe is serving great food, people will make their way to it regardless of where it is. The staff are super friendly, there’s ample of seatings and the Nanban chicken was frigging awesome sauce. I can’t wait for the menu revamp and I will definitely be back.
