A few weeks ago, my best mate B returned from her 8 week overseas adventure. We decided that brunch was an excellent option to catch up over, so did some research and came up with a few options. tbsp. was at the top of my list, after hearing a colleague raving on about their menu. B was keen, so we met up on a gloomy Sunday morning.
We didn’t have long to wait for a table luckily, but soon after we arrived there was a steady stream of people waiting for a table. B’s flat white arrived first, which was made with ‘etude’, an espresso blend at tbsp. that is sweet with a medium body.
I ordered a freshly-pressed Watermelon juice ($7.50), which was very refreshing.
My breakfast arrived and my eyes literally popped – the Kimcheeseburger ($22) is a good looking beast. This burger features a pink and juicy pattie, kimchi and cheese served on a light brioche bun with aioli and chips. You might think this is a weird item to order for brunch, but if you are like me and love your burgers – this is the item to order. The burger is delicious – the pink pattie is flavoursome and the pairing of kimchi is perfect. Since enjoying this burger I’ve had it regularly on my mind since and I cannot wait to order this again. It’s now been throned my favourite burger in Perth.
B ordered the beef brisket benedict ($23), with beer-braised onions, slow-cooked eggs and hollandaise on ciabatta. Typically, this dish would come with the hollandaise on top of the benedict, but B opted for it on the side. I was welcome to try this dish and I have to say, it was divine. The beef brisket was super tender, and the addition of the eggs worked really well. Add the hollandaise and you have yourself a decadent but moreish dish.
I loved our breakfast at tbsp. and cannot wait to return. There’s usually a wait for a table but it is definitely worth it.
