I have been craving the Sunday special of Eggs Benedict for a while now so the choice is pretty obvious for me. Usually served with ham or smoked salmon, I decide to substitute this for bacon, add to that a potato roesti and I'm sorted.
The eggs are poached perfectly, a gentle prod releases the lush, slow oozing yolk; the bacon is crisp & delicious, the hollandaise spectacular & not too acidic. The roesti has been had before, but today it is particularly divine, topped with beautifully caramelised, subtly sweet onions.
Buggles orders the Sausage & Onion roll served with HP sauce. This hits the spot. No nasty gristly bits here - just plump, juicy, meaty sausages, topped with those delicious caramelised onions and dripping with the spicy fruitiness of the HP sauce. She chooses to supplement this with the potato roesti also - which is lucky, as I am not giving any of mine away! Sensational....enough said!
Mention needs to be made of the cool & refreshing Black iced tea with honey & lemon...perfect on this hot Sunday morning.
Service, as always, is efficient & very friendly....with this and the wonderful, generous meals, it is no wonder we find Bar Mattino simply too good to refuse.
