Devon Cafe: Long time lovers

Good Morning folks. If you've just rolled out of bed, you're probably feeling a little hungry; and trust me, you'll only get hungrier after this post.

You're welcome.

Apart from corn fritters at Bills, which is the most reliable breakfast dish for me here in Sydney, there's the whole experience of being fed at Devon Cafe that keeps me coming back for more. Chances are that if you were to order something profoundly strange and exotic sounding off the menu, you'll leave with a happy belly.

In memory of two dishes that have recently kicked the bucket, I shall dedicate an ode to them.

Breakfast with the Sakuma's ($24.50); you were legendary. Truly expressive cooking, exploring shades of flavor more watercolor than acrylic. Miso grilled king salmon, smoked eel croquette, 63' egg, raddish petit salad and the holy grail of mayonnaise, Kewpie; it all came together in a way so unexpected and right that I had to shake my head.

Yotam's Scotch Egg ($21), a ball of fun with an explosive lamb mince kibbeh wrapped round a soft poached quail egg sitting on a bed of soft, tangy, rainbow colored Arabic salad littered with crispy fried chickpeas. You had me at hello.

Please note that the menu has undergone a recent revamp again and after restless tinkering, the folks at Devon have come up with a smashing list of specials. This includes Michelle Ma Belle - French crepes, toffee apples, roasted chestnuts, chestnut cream, cinnamon and caramel ice cream and Chick n Chips - chicken sausage, crispy confit wings, smoked mash, fried egg, cured egg yolk, jus. Drooling yet? Then get your ass down to Devon cafe.
