Morning After, West End, Brisbane

July 06, 2016

Many of you may have heard Morning After from their rendition of Carbonara for breakfast. Located at Vulture St in West End under an apartment building, you may miss it if you're not careful and keeping your eyes open trying to find it. It is great to see restaurants and/or cafes supporting its community and Morning After does just that, using Tassel Salmon from Tasmania, Granola from The Unrefined, Brisbane and baked fresh bread by French Twist.

'Hand Crafted Elixirs (Peanut Butter)' ($8) - peanut butter, maple syrup, banana, ice cream and milk

'Eggs Benedict' ($16) has an option of smoked salmon, smoked bacon or cotechino where he chose smoked salmon. Served on a bed of wilted spinach and topped with micro herbs and hollandaise sauce. A simple dish though Eggs Benny has to be one of our favourite brekky dishes to order and have. Although one downside when the dish did arrive on our table was that it had only one slice of toast. 

With Eggs Benny, sometimes you would get one slice of toast while at some places, you would get two. But having 2 poached eggs and a big bed of wilted spinach sometimes makes you wonder what if I finish the first toast? What would I eat the other egg and the leftover spinach with? Well, I guess by having only one toast, you really need to divide the smoked salmon, the two poached eggs and the spinach between it. The poached eggs and smoked salmon along with the wilted spinach was delicious, the poached eggs were done well though abit more extra hollandaise sauce would have been great. The hollandaise sauce was not too acidic nor was it too strong but did have a very strong lemon flavour.

'Carbonara' ($19) is an interesting dish to have for breakfast but since Morning After opened, the one dish that made me want to dine here was to try their Carbonara breakfast dish. Don't imagine your creamy egg and bacon carbonara you usually have, imagine this as your leaner and healthier version of it. Plus, the downside for some would be that there is no sauce in this dish.. Yes, no creamy sauce at all.

Consisting of Pappardelle pasta, 63 degrees hens eggs, field mushrooms, smoked pancetta and pecorino romano. What made the dish great was that the field mushrooms, smoked pancetta and pecorino cheese worked well with each other of course. It would have been great if the serving of the pappardelle pasta was more than what it was although it was quite thick in width, it seemed that it only needed a few fork twirls to finish it all. The 63 degree hens egg was quite interesting but for those who don't know, hens eggs are usually quite smaller than the usual.

Everyone has their own way of eating this dish, but for me, I first tried all of it by itself before breaking into the egg and mixing it with the pecorino romano to make the dish have some sort of a sauce.

Overall a pleasant experience at Morning After. If you are curious, then definitely do come and have a try and yes, the Carbonara is a must try although it may not be everyone's favourite.
