Merriweather Food & Drink | 27 Russell Street, SOUTH BRISBANE QLD 4101

At the Eat Drink Blog conference that I attended as a delegate over the weekend, there was a session on ethical and sustainable food, which made me rethink the way I eat and the importance of supporting local produce.

So Monday morning when I woke up, I decided to take Minibun George for a walk to a cafe where we could have some fresh local produce for breakfast. The walk was very pleasant. At 7.30 in the morning, the city wasn't as crowded and the air was crisp. A short while later, we arrived at Merriweather Food & Drink in South Brisbane. This corner cafe design its menu in a way that incorporates fresh ingredients from local, small holding and organic farmers. I ordered the roasted local mushrooms, goats milk labne, pistachio spezie, poached eggs ($15.50) and a latte ($4). The dish was presented in a very simplistic way; two perfectly poached eggs with gooey yellow yolk carefully placed on top of a slice of thick sourdough that had been smeared with creamy labneh, then with a handful of mushrooms and a sprinkle of pistachio nuts, the dish was complete. The mushrooms tasted very fresh and slightly firm in texture; they were beautiful. I would've easily eaten much, much more, but self-restraint was shown.

And as for the latte, it was perfect.

Total Bunnie Dollars Spent: $19.50.
